Congratulations on a successful Fall Festival

I would like to congratulate all involved with the Fall Festival for such a successful event. When the hearts, minds and labour of so many come together for the benefit of the community and our students, it could not help but be a success and all indications are that this was one of the best Fall Festivals ever. A special thanks goes to the PTA Steering Committee, the Fall Festival Committee members and all who were involved in the process.

  From the Principal’s Office  

A huge thanks to Mrs Nakamura, Mrs Clipstone and all the hard-working parent volunteers, teachers and students who helped make the fall festival such a success.  While still at the EARCOS conference on Saturday,, I received several updates about how things were going.  By all accounts it looks like it was a truly enjoyable day!

Quarter 1 Progress reports:  A reminder that the end of the first quarter was Friday October 30.  Parents should log into PowerSchool after Thursday this week to see the up-to-date grades for your child.

Next up on the year’s examination calendar:

SAT on November 7
