Randy Pierce Delivers A Great Message To Our Students...

Big picture

Parents & Guardians:

I hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful weather this past weekend. Perhaps the brunt of winter has ended? I'm sure that's not going to be the case, but it was wishful thinking on my end. Anyway, we have a lot going on at school as we head into the tail end of Term #2, so let's get right into it.

Our second round of After School Clubs are now in the sign up phase. Please click on the button below to view our offerings and to sign up. We will be collecting registrations all this week.

Additionally, it's time to order a yearbook. If you are interested, please see the information below on how to place your order. If you have specific questions, please reach out to Mrs. Kasierski at

Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help with the learning process here at school. Remember, it takes a village and we are always here to assist.

Wishing everyone a wonderful week!

Go Grizzlies!
