SHS Week Jan 29 - Feb 2
Hi Parents: Lots of excitement around the school this week as we wished our Olympic Curlers good luck as they prepare to head off to Pyeongchang, South Korea. We were very fortunate to have Marc Kennedy and Scott Pfeifer from the Team Canada curling team with us and students cheered them on whole-heartedly! Lots of fun! Many thanks to Marc and Scott for taking the time to join us.
Our Grade 6 students did an amazing job of their D.A.R.E. presentations at their Grad on Thursday. Many hours of work goes in to our D.A.R.E. program. Thanks goes out to Constable Avoine for her dedication to the program.

-Students in grades 3-9 will be receiving a presentation from a group called Junior Achievement of Northern Alberta & NWT. The group visited our school last year and because of such positive feedback, we have asked them to come back.

A volunteer will come to each classroom for the whole morning to educate students from a ‘real world’ perspective.
