Today marks the first day of Bullying Awareness Week.  The theme of “being the change” and  “standing up for others” will be shared through announcements and a special speaker coming into our school on November 24.  Bullying is not a normal part of growing up.  We have the power to stop bullying.


Welcome to the start of OT’s Peace Week!  Here’s how you can help the Syrian refugees coming to Canada.  Show your support, Simple as that.  We are building care packages for Syrian refugees that are coming to Canada.  Participate in school events run this week and have an impact.  You can write hand written letters that will be a part of each package by stopping off at club connect and can also bring in new slightly used winter gear like hats, mittens and scarves and drop them off.  Keep an eye out for posters around the school for more information.  Be the Change OT and help spread peace.
