Snow Days, Gala Team, Mascot Naming Contest

Brrrr!! Hope everyone is staying warm. Here are this week’s reminders.

1. Snow Days

There is some snow in the forecast this week, so here’s a refresher of where to look to see if school is cancelled.

We will post in the following places:

2. Mascot Naming Contest

Our new hornet mascot made its debut at this past weekend’s basketball games. Thank you to the families that helped make this happen!

Help us name our new mascot! Submit your entry in the box at the front office or email before this Friday, January 19 – there will be a prize for the winning submission!

3. Gala Team

Last call to join the Gala planning team before we have our first meeting later on this month. We’re especially looking for one or two more people who would be excited to help with silent auction item gathering.

4. General Re-registration for 2024-25
Re-Registration fee of $100 per family is due by this Friday, January 19. Payment can be made by eTransfer or at the office by cash, cheque, or debit (credit card payment is no longer accepted for tuition and registration fees).

Please note:

  • Any late re-registration payments made after January 19, will be processed at $200.
