Happy Family Day!


Thank you to all the families who supported the danceathon fundraiser.  Thanks to the children who collected pledge forms and danced up a storm.  Thanks to the parents who counted money, purchased goods and stuffed glow stick bags.  Thanks especially to DJ Nikki and side kick Claire who kept the fun going all day for the children.  It took everyone’s support to put this fun event on.  Thank you.


Congratulations to all the students and teachers who put so much effort into the family portrait displays and the math galleries.  The portraits were wonderful and the different problem solving methods were very interesting.  Great job everyone!
