Congratulations to our Celtic Band for delivery a fine performance last Wednesday night at the Christ Church in Dartmouth as part of the Halifax Celtic Festival. Big thanks to the parent volunteers and all those who helped out to make the concert a success.

From Mr. Lewis:
If you need to be dismissed to go to an appointment during the school day, please make sure you have a note you can show your teacher so that you can be released from class to meet whoever is picking you up. If you do not have a note, your parent/guardian must come inside the school to have you called to the office and to sign you out.

Many thanks for the donations of gift cards toward our gift card basket raffle. We are still in need of gift cards valued at $10 or more please and thank you! The raffle tickets to win one of these gift card baskets went home last week (there will be two winners – one for each basket). There are prizes for the person with the most raffle ticket sales! All proceeds are to assist with year-end activities and your support is very much appreciated. The draw for the 2 gift card baskets valued at $250 each will be on Feb 28 at our community BINGO!
