It’s a “D-C” Day!

Happy Birthday to Cayden Somers.

Welcome to the following guest staff today: Erick VanWiechen for Denise Arbing, and Wanda Cheverie for Yvonne Higgins. Mary Collings is not here today.

Congratulations to the Men’s Rugby team on their decisive victory over Westisle in the AA Championship game last night!

Softball News: The teachers conquered the Women’s Softball Team yesterday with an avalanche of power and teamwork.  The girls battled hard, but were quizzed on a wide range of interesting courses at every base, which threw their game off.  It was a dominating 6-3 finish.  Good luck next year, ladies!
