It’s a “C-D” Day!

Happy Birthday to Brett Birt and Alec Bryenton. We also extend belated greetings to the following students who had their birthdays over the weekend: Anna Sirois-LeCain, Samuel MacKenzie, Nicole MacKinnon and Denver MacKenzie.

Welcome to the following guest staff today: Bryce Gillis for Margaret MacDonald and Wanda Cheverie for Gail Greene.

Water Lingo…… There’s a difference between “filtered water” and “natural spring water”. Natural spring water is from an actual spring. You’ll find filtered water (which is really just filtered tap water) on the market for just as much as spring water,. Dasani and Aquafina are two “filtered water” products. (Info provided by your Environment Club.)
