We are looking for volunteers to help with our Elementary Soccer teams.  This is a short term committment...the season is over in October and games are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  We would love to be able to include students from Grades 3 to 5 so we will need coaches for 2 or 3 teams.  If you can help with this great activity, please contact the school asap!  Thank you!

Cali Crossman was the winner of our Grade 8 Fundraiser.  She had the closest guess for the amount in the jar without going over and won the contents of the jar.  The kids would like to to thank Buddy O'Toole who donated the amount to support our cause.

The Grade 8 students raised $300 for their end of the year trip to Hopewell Rocks which they will be taking next Wednesday.

On Wednesday October 5, Ms. Hackett’s Grade 3, Ms. Sullivan's Grade 2 and Mrs. Dickson’s Grade 1 classes went out to plant our tulip garden. It was a cool and sunny morning with a temperature of 6C. Before we planted the tulip bulbs, we went through the checklist to make sure it was a good spot to plant.

The K-2 classes held their annual Grandparents Tea on Friday September 16th. There was a great turnout of grandparents, parents and other guests. The students did a fabulous job of presenting poems and songs for their grandparents. As well the grandparents enjoyed a snack and then spent some time visiting with their grandchild in their classes and meeting their teachers.

It was a great day and we want to thank eveyone for attending!
