Hi all,

Whew! We made it - again; wild weather end to the five week stretch. The calendar has been updated, especially with information for 8th grade families about high school transition. (Whaaaat?!)

Ugly Mug Contest (and donation)
Mr. Pless needs some mugs for his classroom - he has a water filter that sees much use and many a student do not have water bottles. If your family has some “ugly” mugs you wish to donation - defined as not glass, school appropriate, with small chips, and lives at the back of the cupboard because of its “unique” design - please send them in with your child. The contest will take place Friday after break.

Thank you! Event was very successful, feeding over 250+ students from grades 5-8. See a short video below for a glimpse into the event:
