Belonging Week is Upon Us…

One of the things guests and visitors regularly tell us is how welcome they feel and how kind our students are when they visit. Even the best of us still need a reminder about our responsibility to ensure everyone feels like they belong. This week our staff and students will be focused on ensuring everyone remembers how valuable they are for who they are and how important each person is to our community.

Popcorn Thursdays Continuing This Week

Our grade 8s will selling Popcorn for $1 each Thursday to raise some funds for their graduation. The idea is that the grade 8s take a leadership role in this, so the sales will be cash only and will take place weekly on Thursdays. If you happen to send your child with a dollar, they can enjoy popcorn. If not, they can always enjoy another week. We will be selling the popcorn weekly until Christmas. If it remains popular, we may continue throughout the winter and into the Spring. It will definitely be delicious while it lasts!
