The heating difficulties that we were experiencing last week are over.

Students really warmed up Friday afternoon, as all divisions participated in “Fitness Dance Activities” in the gym.

This Friday, October 30, students are invited to come to school either in costume or to dress in orange and black.  There are a number of ‘spooktacular’ activities taking place on Friday.

If you are not satisfied with the proofs you can bring your envelope to the RETAKE DAY to be photographed again.

If your student missed the class photo, you can inform the photographer on the RETAKE DAY and we will digitally “add” the student into the class photo.

Retake Day will be Thursday Nov 12

For best results dress in bright colours and try to avoid white or black. The Background will be a mid tone Blue (not as dark as last year). All students will receive a free class photo regardless if you order any packages.
