Delayed Buses

Our school buses were delayed by approximately 20 minutes on Friday, February 8th, due to an issue with a door in a Grade 4 classroom. A plate broke on the door and it became stuck. The students and teachers in the classroom handled the situation very well and waited patiently. The fire department was called, the door was opened, and the students were able to board the buses that were held for them. The door will be repaired next week. We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding regarding the delay this afternoon.  

Junior Ski Trip

Our second Junior ski trip of the year is on Monday, February 11th. The buses are scheduled to leave Mount Pakenham at 4:45pm and will be returning to the school at approximately 5:00pm. Parents are responsible to pick up and sign out their child at the school at 5:00pm. Thank you very much for your cooperation.

Money will be raised through donations during the spirit week. Families can donate any amount of money they would like and it will be donated to our Lenten project -

Also, thanks to the Thai family for donating the tickets to the Sens game on March 16th! They will be raffled off starting Tuesday through Thursday next week. One ticket for two dollars. Three for five dollars. The draw will be on Thursday, February 14th.
