It’s a “D-C” Day!

Happy Birthday to Brent Deagle, Tyler Deagle, and Louise Loung.

Welcome to the following guest staff today: Zak Likely for Karen Malone and Kathleen Duncan for Sharon Anderson.

Congratulations to Ms Beck’s CEO 401 homeroom class who won the SAVE homeroom competition. The class completed a display on their classroom door and created an amazing music video featuring the creative musical and acting talents of Ms Beck and students in the class. Their project spoke out about relationship abuse and promoted a message of peace and support. An honorable mention goes out to Ms Flynn’s FRE 521 class, Mr Jamieson’s Canadian History Class and Ms MacFarlane’s Child Care class for their creative, artistic, and eye catching door displays. Students and staff will have an opportunity to view Ms. Beck’s class video in the near future.
