In April, all students, parents and staff will be invited to participate in a Board-wide school climate survey. This survey is conducted bi-annually and will give us information about your son or daughter's school experience. This survey is part of a province-wide initiative by the Ministry of Education for school boards to get feedback from students, parents/guardians and school staff every two years in order to provide input on the school climate. Knowing what children think and how they feel about their school can help to make the school a better place to learn.
Families are encouraged to complete the survey using this link. Please see the letter with more details.
Parent-Teacher interviews will be Thursday March 28th from 5 - 7 pm.
Appointments are encouaged. Have you son or daughter use the appoinment slip that was sent home on Friday. Additional copies are available in the office.
The annual "Bids for Kids" food for learning auction is Thursday April 12, 2019.
We are so pleased to announce that our unique partnership with Quinte First Credit Union has resulted in a $2000 grant for our Entrepreneurship class. Alexandra Leavey from the Credit Union applied for a grant to help promote cooperatives and start up businesses. Mrs. Spry, the teacher of the class says, "I plan to get some flat grills for grilled cheese sandwiches to go with smoothies."
