Spaghetti Supper

This year’s Spaghetti Supper was another huge success and we would like to extend our appreciation to everyone who made this year’s event possible. We would like to thank all our volunteers, everyone who sent in donations, Dave Fisher, owner of Dave’s Diner, Fisher’s Pub and Harry’s and everyone who came out to support the event. All the money raised will go right back to the kids! Lastly, we would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to Mrs. McKee for all her hard work organizing and planning this year’s event. It was AWESOME and without all your support we would not be able to do all the amazing things we are able to do for our kids…..thanks again!

Family Traditions

Thursday night we had our annual Grade 2 Family Traditions Night and it was awesome! Parents were treated to a mini concert, led by Mrs. Michaels and Ms. Brais , and the kids did great! After the music parents had a chance to visit the classes to see the kid's projects which were all about their family traditions and heritage.

Building Bridges

This week Mrs. Lombardi's, Mrs. Adams's and Mrs. Cardarelli's classes participated in a STEM challenge where students had to work collaboratively to build a bridge that was both aesthetically pleasing and strong. I was incredibly impressed with the student's designs, ingenuity and ability to collaborate!
