The days are getting longer, bit by bit but the days of learning are getting shorter – we will be celebrating day 100 this Tuesday!

March Break – March Break is next week – the week of March 4th. We hope you all enjoy the time with your families and students come back rejuvenated for more learning J

Pink Shirt Day – Wednesday is Pink Shirt Day  - this is a day to wear pink in awareness of  and promote a focus of diversity and respect.

It is an opportunity to engage in discussions around the difference in being kind/mean or bullying, tattling vs telling/reporting and other aspects of diversity and respect. If students do not have pink, that is ok! No need to buy something. Our Guidance teacher is providing information to teachers to use on this day.\
