Good Evening Gators!

This week students in Ms. Brazeau, Ms. Turjuman, Ms. Jerzyk, Ms. Gabriel and Ms. Swift's classesparticipated in an in-school Pizza Nova visit.  During this workshop students learned about Canada's Food Guide, how to make healthy choices and the procedural steps it takes to make pizza.

Mr. Charrey’s class has been busy working on their science inquiry projects using green screen filming technology. The students have been studying space for a few weeks now and are very excited to start using this technology in the learning commons. Thank you to Mr. Charrey and Ms. Belford for engaging our students.

Reminder: Tomorrow Friday February 1st is a PA day, schools are not open for students tomorrow. We look forward to seeing you all back at school on Monday, February 4th, 2019.

Reminder: Parent Council on Monday February 4th at 6:30pm in the Learning Commons. We look forward to seeing you there!
