Information & Reflections from Last Week:

  • Swimming – whoosh, there it goes. Our students improved their endurance and skills over 5 consecutive days of swimming. Many students qualified for a level badge too.
  • Bear House Scavenger Hunt & Dress as Your Favourite Character – thank you Leadership group for planning a very fun activity! The kids were so excited and loved running in the hallways (such anarchy, lol). Thank you Parent Society for donating the chocolate bars/treats for prizes for all participants, delicious!
  • The Pure – Thank you Mr. Hawken  for booking this band, a fantastic upbeat hour of Irish music and dancing! It’s always amazing to see Luke jump in and display his talents on the violin!
  • Pizza and more Pizza – thank you to our Parent Society for connecting with Barrhead Pizza hut for a great hot lunch deal. 
  • Thanks to Pembina Pipeline for the yummy Tim Horton’s “Smile Cookies”
