Remembrance Day Assembly Nov. 9th @ 11:00 am

Our school Remembrance Day assembly is Friday, Nov. 9 at 11:00 a.m. in the gym. We’d like to extend a warm invitation to our families to join us in observing this significant day.

Poppies, either sticker or pin, will be given to all students the morning of Remembrance Day.  We ask that students bring a donation (loonie/toonie) to contribute to our Legion collection box to support our Canadian veterans.  As well, poppies are also available in the office for family members during the week.
