·        Attention all tennis team members going to the York Invitational tournament on Monday;  Meet in the atrium immediately after announcements.  Be sure to bring a lunch, water and sunscreen.


·        We’ve already reached the first week on the school wide food drive contest.  Please tally up the number of items you have in your class and bring that number down with the recycling.  There is still time to get ahead and win a class frozen yogurt party.  Any non-perishable food items will do such as canned fruit, rice, flour and powdered milk.


·        OT is trying to collect enough pop cans to purchase wheelchairs.  From now until May 22nd every time you drink a can of pop make sure you donate the tab.  There is a red collection box in the cafeteria for the tabs.


·        Need volunteer hours?  Sign up in the main office to volunteer at James W Hill public school’s Spring Fair and BBQ.  Volunteers needed May 25th 9 -3


·        Yesterday the girls soccer team hosted the Lady Wildcats of White Oaks and won 4 – 0.


·        The midget boys rugby team faced Streetsville yesterday afternoon and won 34 – 5.  Practice today is CANCELLED


·        Did you know that this week is Mental Health Awareness Week.  Yesterday 2 members from the SOS team put a rip in their shirt everytime they heard an insult or negative comment.  These shirts are being displayed in the atrium as a visual reminder that words hurt and it isn’t just a cliché.  Words don’t just affect the victim but our whole community.  Everytime you walk through the atrium you can see how words can damage someone’s self -esteem just like the t-shirts.
