On Friday, September 27, 2019, students will be taking part in the annual Terry Fox School Run. Our fundraising goal this year is $800.
Our school is proud to play an important role in supporting cancer research. Through our participation in the Terry Fox School Run, we hope to encourage leadership in our students and create positive agents of change in our wonderful school community.
On Wednesday, September 18, from 5-7 p.m., we are hosting a "Welcome Back!" BBQ and Open House. We hope to see many of our family members there!
Our food orders were submitted on Friday, September 13. Everyone is invited to join us at our Open House, including those who chose not to order. Those who ordered can pick up their BBQ tickets from your child's teacher.
The Kindergarten (Mrs. Woodard), Grade 1 (Mrs. Lapchuk and Ms. Marcotte) and Grade 1/2 (Mrs. Empringham) classes are having their first FAMILY DAY on Thursday, September 12 from 2:00-3:22 p.m.!
We are kicking off our home reading programs by creating reading treasure boxes.
Please bring an empty shoe box and craft materials if possible. We will have some available as well!
Oh, Ms. Gwilliam, what will we do without you?! Ms. Gwilliam retires at the end of June. She has been our fearless and dedicated Community Coordinator for 11 years, responsible for writing grants, working with families, supporting students, partnering with our School Community Council... and truly everything in between. Even in a large school like ours, every single student (from our Pre-Kinders all the way up to our almost-finished Grade 8s) can tell you all about her!

As everybody knows, a bench can offer a calming reprieve from daily life as a place to relax and observe your surroundings. They’re also a great place to strike up a conversation with a potential new friend.
