Good Evening Gator Families.

Thank you so much to our families who came out to support the band on Wednesday night as they performed at the Toronto Marlie’s game. Thank you to Mr. Hull who has spent an incredible amount of time getting our students ready for the performance, and thank you also to Mr. Baker for being our volunteer supervisor on this event. The students were amazing, and made all of us so proud! Go Gators!!


A busy week in our Learning Commons! Students engaged in low tech activities, using LEGO to create their own robot creation as a literacy link to the story Boy and Bot. Students also engaged in using cubelets to explore, and engage in fun learning.  Thank you Ms. Belford!!

All of our regular clubs and activities, such as Vex Robotics, Peace Keepers & Peace Buddies, Knitting Club, Annie Jr. rehearsals, Drumline, Jazz Band and Symphonic Winds continued this week, with the addition of our Junior Boys’ Volleyball tryouts.  Senior Girls’ basketball tryouts will take place next week as well as our after school Literacy Programs.
