You will not that the grade-group field trips have been added to the year-end.  These trips are in recognition of good effort throughout the school year.  If students have exhibited poor behavior over the year, they may not be eligible to go on these trips.  Parents will be informed if this is the case.  We all look forward to wrapping up the school year on a positive note!

Tickets for the Grade 8 Leaving Celebration are available for purchase at lunch in the mall.  Tickets can be purchased for $20 and must also be accompanied by a signed permission form.

As we wrap up the year we also begin to look at next year.  With that in mind, our PAC has partnered with Staples to put together school supplies packages for each of the grades.  You can order on-line or in person.   For more information please see on our website Links, Students, Supply Lists.

Have a wonderful week!

Mr. Honer
