Thank You

Dear Parents,

We would like to thank all the parents who donated food and their time to support our staff during this difficult time. It was greatly appreciated and heartwarming to know we have such strong support from you. We continue to have supports in place for our students. As well, we feel it is important that they have opportunities to show their support. With that in mind, we are going to have our entire school do an outdoor clean up in honor of Mr Underhay who had such a ‘passion for the environment’. We will have designated areas for the students to clean and staff supervision. Gloves will be provided. Should any parent want to come to assist, he or she would be more than welcome. We will heading out approx 1:30 tomorrow.

Thanks again and perhaps we will see many of you at the “Celebration of Life” which will take place at Stonepark school tomorrow evening at 6pm.
