Terry Fox Run
Our Terry Fox Run, on Thursday, October 6th, was a great success. The students enjoyed a beautiful afternoon of running and walking and more than $700 was raised. Thanks to everyone in our community for their wonderful support of this event.
With the recent release of the Pokemon Go App, we have seen a surge in popularity of Pokemon Cards on the school yard. We know that many students enjoy the social aspect of discussing and comparing their Pokemon card collections. However, in order to avoid conflicts, we ask that no trading of Pokemon cards takes place at the school. We would also like to remind every student that they are responsible for any cards they bring to school. We are not responsible for any lost or damaged cards. We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
