Thank you PAC (Parent Action Committee) for your hard work to make our Valentine’s day celebration a huge success where all learners got to tidy up the building and enjoy hot chocolates and cookies. Learners were super excited about this!

Special appreciation to 8th grade Learner Ambassadors for putting together”Candy Grams!” It was a great fundraising event and the learners got to deliver special messages to their friends, peers and staff of the school. We know that you all worked hard to put this event together and you made our valentine’s that much special. We made $300! Thank you.

Please remember to check out facilitator Newsletters for weekly updates on our website. We strive to communicate with our parent community on what we do to facilitate the learning.  Please find the newsletters under “News” on the top banner, then click on “Facilitator Newsletters.” We appreciate your feedback.
