A message will also be sent out via the Remind App.   Please ensure that you have signed up with Remind if you have not yet done so. Code for parents to join is @79h66
  • A warm welcome to Mrs. Angela Martin, our new Grade 7 teacher, and to Mr. Seiler, who although not new, is new to the position of Religion. Thank you to both teachers for their hard work in preparing for their respective positions.
  • Snow safety – the students have been reminded every day about safety outside in the snow and ice. We are very clear that students are not permitted to throw snowballs, and we take this rule very seriously. Our aim is not to take out the fun of snow play, but to keep all of our students safe. Thank you in advance for supporting this school rule.
  • Grade 2 parents – please be reminded that there is a first reconciliation meeting coming up on Tuesday, January 17th at 6:30pm in the school gym.
