​Hello Parents!

We are looking to begin our morning BOKS Program on October 2nd. This progiram is a great opportunity for our students to participate in additional physical activites prior to the start of the school day. The program runs on Tuesday and Thursday from 7:50am-8:20am in our gymnasium. 

In order for this program to work we rely heavily on parent volunteers to run the activities. We have been very lucky to have some dedicated members on board. This year we are looking for a few additions to our team to help build our program and possibly allow us to add additional times and reach more students.

If you feel you would be able to assist please contact the school or leah.o'keefe@nbed.nb.ca to get more information. No experience is required and we will work to mentor any new members! 

Many Thanks!download.pngdownload.png
