Thank you family and friends who came out to celebrate with us: to Tony Hicks for videotaping the process of creating our Earth Day chalk art, to the Mayor for planting a tree in our back yard and to Stonemarx for engraving a wonderful stone keepsake to commemorate the event. We have a wonderful parent and town community! Happy Earth Day!
2014 Open House a HUGE success!
April 3rd's Open House was a thrill as parents, students, teachers and friends joined us to celebrate the completion of a second term. Early bird re-enrollment was a success as most of our current parents and three new children pre-enrolled for the 2014-2015 school term! We expect many, many more. Thank you to the teachers who worked so hard to get the school ready, provided the snacks and prepared the students to lead parents and visitors on a tour through our hallowed halls to show off our new computer lab, library and each classroom. Mr. W. and Mr. E., your wonderful stage was appreciated during our opening ceremonies. A special mention to Mrs. Hosick and her cousin who surprised us all with colour and spirit by coming in on the weekend to re-paint our doors and halls. WOW! What a difference a splash of colour made!
