·         Congratulations to the senior school reach team who travelled to Toronto  for the weekend to compete at Reach Provincials.  In spite of their brutal draw, the team managed to finish 12th of 40 teams- an improvement over last year!


·         On a Relay team?  Then you have a luminary waiting to be decorated.  Come down to the Luminary table outside of the Café over your lunch to decorate it.


·         Looking for volunteer hours?  James W Hill is having their Spring Fair Saturday May 27th from 9-3.  Sign- up sheet is in the main office if interested.


·         The boys baseball team travelled to Burlington yesterday for two games against Notre Dame.  They came out strong in the first game picking up a big 4-3 win.  Some early errors in the second game turned out to be the difference as the boys lost a high scoring game.  Robbie Gauthier and Zach Gardiner each hit their first home run of the season yesterday. 


·         Yesterday our varsity girls soccer team traveled to North Park to take on the Rams of MM Robinson in the Halton quarter finals.  The game went back and forth with the Devils carrying most of the play but failing to capitalize on their chance.  At the end of regulation the game was all tied up at 1-1.  Overtime solved nothing so they went to overtime Penalty kicks where the Devils came up a bit short and lost.  Coach Gruber and Scott would like to thank the team on a great season.  Special  thanks to our 7 graduating seniors Aisling, Sam, Hannah, Claire, Patricia and our  two captains Courtney and Anne-Sophie.


·         The annual grad breakfast is this Thursday morning.  If you are in grade 12 join your classmates from 8:00- 9:30 in the cafeteria for a full hot breakfast, updates from Guidance and of course the speeches from our 3 valedictorian nominees.  Voting for the class of 2017 Valedictorian will take place at the breakfast.  You must be present to vote.


·         Already finished fundraising for Relay, you have  your minimum amount of $125, then come down to deposit y our money on Bank days.  Come to room 136, periods 3 & 4 Monday – Wednesday during the first 3 weeks of May.  Also just a reminder the online fundraising will continue up until the day before Relay.  You only have today and tomorrow.
