Our school sure was filled with high energy and learning this past week!  A big thank you to Ms. Crosland, her team of student volunteers, and all of the shoppers who supported the Scholastic Book Fair.  This is a wonderful community building event which supports our literacy goals.   Sports activities like badminton, track & field, running club ultimate frizbee and the famous Georges Vanier Hockey League are all underway!   Thanks to our many teacher coaches and leaders who give their extra time and talents to support our students!

We have two short school weeks coming up with the long Easter weekend between.  School is closed April 14 – 17.

Be sure to mark your calendars for our upcoming Spring Concert on Thursday, April 27th.  Tickets will be on sale for afternoon and evening performances.  More details will follow!
