On Wednesday, May 8, 2019, grade 7 and 8 students will be participating in a leadership learning opportunity at the Youth Leadership Camp of Canada in Orillia. Through their unique leadership programme your child will not only gain a deeper understanding of their capabilities, they will also gain self confidence, goal-setting abilities, and an understanding of how to reach their goals.  The activities work progressively, allowing students to experience challenges, obstacles, and successes, and in so doing, gain a deeper understanding of their leadership style and discover more about themselves. This opportunity comes at a cost of $50. Lunch is provided.

As this is an outdoor learning program, proper footwear (closed toed shoes) is essential for students.  As always, students are required to bring nut-free snacks and a refillable water bottle.

Forms and monies must be returned for Thursday, April 4, 2019.

Absences and Vacations
If your child is absent and you would like to arrange for missed work, there is no need to contact the office!  Please go to our Daily Agenda page to see what work was missed.  From there you can access our digital file cabinets in each subject.   Print or read from the website, but days missed no longer need to mean work missed!

If you are planning to be away for more than three days, and would like the work that will be missed, please provide one full week's notice.  A lesson's momentum, student comprehension, teachable moments - all of this impacts our classroom timelines.  To give you the most accurate work, time to properly reflect, look ahead, and organize is appreciated.

Daily Agenda
Every attempt is made to post daily work in the Agenda section before each school day.  

In the event of a meeting, appointment, absence or emergency, this may not always occur on the same day.

Cell Phones
Cell phones are collected each morning and returned at the end of the school day.  During the day, they are kept in a locked room.  If a phone is not handed in, and students are found using it, in accordance with Board policy the cell phones are brought to the office for parent pick-up.
