Week at a Glance - March 20-24

Happy sunny Friday afternoon! We hope everyone had a wonderful week! On Monday, students attending Black History Month presentations at Nashwaaksis Memorial which students and staff really enjoyed. Thursday, we were treated to a GREEN breakfast as an early St. Patrick's Day celebration. Thank you to the Home and School and Kiwanis for making this happen. Today, Mr. Collet's Kindergarten class surprised us with a St. Patrick's Day parade and treats in the gym. Then, we stayed for an Irish dance party! I have attached a picture of Mr. C for your enjoyment.
