Lest We Forget. We hope that you got to spend time today with loved ones to remember those that have fought for the many freedoms that we enjoy today.
So as you know it has been a long and eventful week especially for those following certain events taking place south of the border. Hopefully we can now look forward and look to the end of term which is approaching very quickly, about 36 days to go. There are lots of things in the mix and lots of volunteer/donations that are being sourced currently – more on that below.

Grade 7 Quebec Trip fundraiser – Parents will have received a newsletter from the school with information on fundraising events/initiatives for the Quebec trip.
Saturday 25th February – Ross Road Parent Party – More details to follow but it is sure to be a fun event on the north shore.
- WE Day – A group of Ross Road students recently attended We Day in Vancouver. As part of this experience, they coordinated the We Scare Hunger Project at Ross Road. Our students collected a total of 1250 food items, and will celebrate their accomplishment with: Crazy Hair Day on November 30, Pajama Day on December 16, and an extra recess on a day to be determined. Congratulations on doing something so helpful for other people, Ross Road!
- The kids had a guest speaker attend school this past week regarding anti-bullying, Michael Bortolotto, talked to them about kindness, inclusion and empathy.
