Birchwood Grade 7/8 Sandspit Trip Change of Date

Due to the unfavorable forecast on Friday, we have decided to go to Sandspit on Thursday, June 20. Monday was originally our rain-date but with the possible cancellations on Friday and the schools who were already scheduled to go on Monday, the number would have been extremely large so we felt going a day early would be a better time for all. If your child is planning on going, please make sure they have their forms and payments in by tomorrow (Wednesday) morning. We will be moving our awards assembly to Monday afternoon.
