InviteRight is an online registration software that will allow parents to complete permission forms for school activities and make online payments to the school with either Visa or Mastercard. Cash and/or cheque payments will still be accepted at the
office. We will be relying on Synervoice to notify parents of upcoming activities by
either phone call or email . Please make sure the office has a current email address

From the Library
December was a busy month in the Library. The Book Fair was held Dec. 2 & 3. A huge thank you to all of the volunteers, for without you this event would not be possible. From set up, decorations, to cashiers - teachers, students
and of course parents play a huge roll.
Our first annual Open House event also was successful. Mrs. Whyte and her Gr. 10 Home Ec/Skills classes baked and
served for this event with all proceeds donated to Christmas Cheer.
Winner of the Family Event draw: Annika H.
Winner of the "Where were they?" draw: Dahlia S.
This led right into our annual Library Christmas Scavenger huntswhere each grade gets a set of questions to answer while bustling
around the library.
Super sleuths this year went to Rachel P. and Shandra J. in 8H.
Well done!! They answered the most amount of questions correctly in an amazing 15 minutes less than everyone else!
As January is upon us, I am busy processing the new material
that we were credited with at the Book Fair, and planning for
Love to Read month in Feb.
Happy New Year! -Ms. Clark
Grade 5 and 6's will be enjoying Basketball as an intramural activity from now until February. We have had a total of
8 teams participating. Thanks to staff for organizing these
noon events. Students have lots of fun and are keeping active! A special note of thanks to the students who do the
refereeing and score keeping for us!
The grade 7/8 floor hockey intramurals will soon be
heading into the playoff rounds. Teams are finishing up
their regular seasons in the next 10 days. The teacherteam, led by Mr. Clark, is currently undefeated and
seems to be on track for another title.
Pedestrians are reminded to not
cross through the bus loop during
loading times. This is a safety concern for all. Please use the designated crosswalks during loading times.
Thank you for your cooperation.
