Week Nov 6 - 11
Hi Parents: Most of our Grade 9 students were at various worksites on Thursday for “Take Your Kid to Work Day”. The Kindergarten to Grade 6 students participated in some curling presentations, and swimming began for the elementary students. All in all – another active week around the school!
The junior high students carved pumpkins on Monday and distributed them around the Northridge area. In return, students collected food bank items that our neighbors had left on their doorsteps. 290 pounds of food were gathered and taken to the St. Albert Food Bank! Wow! Thanks to everyone for their participation!
