Congratulations to all on an amazing season!


·         Its Marker Monday!  The Pen Drive is happening today during periods 3 & 4 in the atrium.  We will be collecting used pens, mechanical pencils, highlighters and markers that have run out of ink.  Students and staff are invited to participate.  Recycle your used pens by this Thursday for a chance to win prizes and gift cards from Indigo, Metro, Kind Matter Company, David’s Tea and LL Bean.


·         Attention Music Students:  if you ordered a music hoodie they are here.  Come pick yours up in the music room.


·         A reminder to all rugby players to hand forms into Mr Schaffler.  Also check Google Classroom for tryouts.
