From Ms. Crocker:
Girls Group with Moe Green meets at 11am in the Learning Commons tomorow.
Guys Group with Moe Green meets at 1pm in the Learning Commons tomorrow.

From 905 Civics Group:
Today’s tip to avoid being a bucket dipper is to not make fun of people with accents. People often can’t change the way they talk, so there’s no point in making fun of them which causes them embarrassment and self consciousness. Thanks for listening and learning how to be more kind.

From the Learning Centre:
There are some clean, gently worn, gender neutral, girls size 7 sneakers and flats available to anyone who is interested.  Please see Ms. Vee, Ms. O or Ms. W in the learning centre and they will show them to you. You can also tell your teacher that you are interested and they will let the learning centre know. There are also clean and gently worn hoodies and jeans if you wish to take a look at those.
