We have arranged to have Hal Cameron, the Brighter Futures Coordinator at Willow Cree Health Station, to come in and provide the opportunity for students to smudge before the start of the school day on Mondays and Wednesdays. The smudging takes place starting at 8:30 and is hosted in Ms. Nelson’s classroom.
Starting on Tuesday, January 24th, students in Grades 10 to 12 will have final exams for the semester.
Grade 9 students write final exams on Friday, January 27th only.
Grade 7 & 8 students do not write finals.
January has arrived with a bit of a cold-wave. Please monitor the bus cancellation link to see if buses are running.
Elementary students will have indoor recess if the temperature with windchill is below -25 Celsius. All students will be expected to go outside for recess breaks if the temperature is above -25, so we do ask that they do come prepared to go outside with appropriate warm clothing.
Thank you and stay warm.
