2. This Friday November 16th is the last day to order for:

  • The Card Project
  • The Grade 7 Quebec Fundraiser


Parent helpers needed to catalogue new library books  

Our school library has received a large volume of new books, due in part to PAC fundraising, that need to be prepared for circulation. Our school Teacher-Librarian Maria McAllister is looking for parent helpers on three upcoming dates to help with this:
Monday, November 19  8:50am-12:00pm
Friday, November 23     12:50pm-2:50pm
Monday, November 26  8:50am-12:00pm
If you can give some time to help out on one of those dates, that would be an immense help to get the new books ready quickly for our kids to read and enjoy. Parent helpers will give each book a stamp and a barcode, and apply a protective tape to the book spines. Please sign up to help out at the link below.
