A special thank you to Claire Michaud and Jackie McGrath for organizing the Syrian Donation Fund.  Over $200.00 was raised to this very important cause.

A grateful shout out to Ginette Szentgyorgyi for her generous donation of her 50/50 winnings back to the school.  That makes a total donation of $444.00 going to technology improvements at the school!

Thank you to Tania Zoldak, Suzy Medeiros and Ortenca Binjaku for feeding us all.  A special thank you to gr 8's Dion, Angelica and Ronan.  A profit of $180.00 was made for the gr 8 class.  Thank you everyone!
