·         Did you know that the poppy tradition began when the noticeable red flower was seen growing over the graves of soldiers?  The significance of the poppy as a lasting memorial symbol to the fallen, was realized by the Canadian surgeon John McCrae in his poem “ In Flanders Fields.”  Don’t forget to continue to come by the Remembrance Day Campaign table in the atrium during periods 3 & 4 so you can sign the “ I Remember” poppies and doves, and buy poppies to show your support for our veterans.


·         There will be a meeting for anyone wishing to try out for the Junior boys basketball team today after school in the Health Room.  Please see Mr St Denis in the phys- ed office for details.


·         A reminder that the meeting for girls interested in playing volleyball is tomorrow after school in room 237.


·         Attention DECA members:  today’s meeting is for members in the finance, hospitality and entrepreneurship categories.  See you in room 237.


·         Yesterday your junior boys volleyball team faced off against Craig Kielberger in the Halton semi-finals.  With some dominant hitting by Matthew Tint and Nathan DeGroodt, plus some stellar serving from Luc Barnett-Wright, the boys maintained their undefeated record to advance to Halton Finals this Thursday.


·         Want to go support the junior boys volleyball team at the Halton Finals?  There will be one fan bus; leaving here at 9:15 am on Thursday.  The first 47 students to pay the fan bus fee on cashless will be reserved a ticket.  Permission forms need to be picked up at the main office and returned before bus departure.


·         Got a musical, theatre, comedic or other artistic talent?  Come show off  your skills at Coffeehouse next Thursday.  Sign- ups are at the RDC office, library and music room.
