Principal / Vice Principal’s Message

It is hard to believe that this is our final week at school for 2016!  Students can look forward to lots of  festive learning as we continue Genius Jar guessing, Food Bank donations, holiday art, and possibly more  fun in the snow!

Thursday, Dec. 15th will be particularly exciting with our extended recess, treats for staff, Christmas Spirit day, school-wide Sing-a-Long and Grade 7 band performance.  There will also be a very special surprise for every student in the school from our friends at Horizon Church!

Staffing Update:  We are very pleased to let you know that Mr. Newbold will continue as our Acting Vice Principal, until further notice.  Also, Ms. Perry and Ms. Fei will continue in their positions, until further notice.
