It's Friday again, Firebird family! Love is in the air here at school, as most of our classes all had their Valentine's Day celebrations today. The gymnastics team hosted a great meet on Tuesday, and the club basketball and hockey teams have been playing hard. We're so proud of all our Firebird athletes and scholars!
Enjoy the three-day weekend, and we'll see everyone again on TUESDAY!

Wish you had a trail of breadcrumbs to follow your teen around?
Tracking your teen’s activity is important for their well-being (and your peace of mind). As your teen becomes more independent, ask where they are going, what they will be doing and who they'll be with when leaving the house. Help your teen understand that these questions aren’t intended to be an invasion of privacy. Having systems in place that help your teen report their activities to you can actually lead to greater freedom for your teen because you are more comfortable that your teen is safe.
