Hello Parent Community,

Our Grade 8 ski trip is taking place on Monday Feb 24th with the bus leaving at 9:30 and returning around 6:00 pm. 

Tuesday Feb 25th is Shrove Tuesday. This year we will be providing sausage cooked by the hospitality team at St. John's College under the direction of Chef (and teacher) Dennis Perras. A big thanks to Laryn Hussey and Renee Cochrane for organizing and our several parent volunteers that will be helping us out on Tuesday. The staff and students appreciate the support of our numerous volunteers. 

On Wednesday Feb 26th, we will be celebrating Pink Shirt Day. A day that was started by a high school student in Canada that is now recognized around the world. Wearing a pink shirt is a way to show our solidarity in recognizing and eliminating bullying. We plan to share the story behind pink shirt day at our month end assembly. 

On Friday Feb 28th, we will hold our month end awards assembly.

Thank you  and have a great weekend.
