SCHOOL INFORMATION

New School Mural – Junior students in Learning Expeditions started working on a new school mural inside the main entrance this week. The students are working with local artist, Mehran Razmpoosh, on what their “ideal” mural should look like. Please come by to have a look!

WINTER GIFT SHOPPING EXPERIENCE will be once again hosted by our PAC just before Christmas break (Date TBC). Please have a look around your house and set aside lightly used and new items: accessories (jewellery, scarves, sun glasses) toys, books, and small household items (no clothing or shoes please). We will sell these items to the students for $1 per item. This will give students a chance to shop for Christmas gifts for their family and friends. We will be requesting that donations be dropped off at the beginning of December and more detailed information will follow.

Sincerely, 
 
Brayden Gordon
Principal
