Thursday, Dec. 21, 2017 – Day 3

Daily Announcements

Over the next few days, students and staff will be enjoying a number of activities and events that will keep students and staff busy. We encourage all students to participate and to bring their Cobra spirit so that these days are enjoyed by all. One of the events that we will be offering, on Friday, will be a school skate (helmets required) at the Eastlink Center starting at 10 am. Other activities throughout the day, will be offered for those students who prefer not to skate.Grade 7’s will be having our second off grounds day this Friday which we hope will be a drier experience. Students must have your permission so please discuss your expectations with your child for this day. If you are giving your child permission, please remind your children to dress for the weather so that they have an enjoyable lunch.

Happy Holidays,
