It’s a “C-D” Day!

Happy Birthday to Brody MacDonald.

Welcome to the following guest staff today: Zak Likely for Mary Ellen Lowther, Jonathan Gallant for Alana Trainor, Peggy Franciosa for Lynn Hayes (am) and Yvonne Higgins (pm), Wanda Cheverie for Yvonne Higgins (am) and Gail Greene (pm).

Information for Grads:

  • Ski trip is planned for February 21. No experience is needed (lessons are available). Students must have a permission form signed by a parent/guardian, and must travel on the bus. There are three cost options: $5 covers bus cost (come and hang out at Brookvale), $10 includes lift ticket and bus, or $20 includes rental equipment, lift ticket, and bus.
  • Students interested in purchasing grad clothing should pick up an order form; money and orders are due back on February 7.
  • Students have an opportunity to participate in the Caps 50/50 Safe Grad Fundraiser. $10 will get one 50/50 ticket to be drawn February 15 and one ticket to a Caps hockey game in Summerside. Grads are responsible to return $50 for a booklet of 5 tickets; money and/or tickets must be returned by February 7. 

Today’s Highlights:

  • Today in the Cafeteria: Sweet ‘n Sour meatballs with rice, egg roll and a small white milk for $5.50.

Athletic Department:

  • The MRHS Female Athlete of the week for the week of January 14 -18 is Claire Diehlmann of Point Pleasant Road. Claire is a Grade Ten student. Her knowledge of the game, along with her solid defense and her ability to set good solid screens make her a real asset to the team.
  • “For the Boys” Dodgeball ream will be representing MRHS at the high school dodgeball tournament at Colonel Gray next Thursday, January 31, at 6:30pm. Tickets for fans are on sale today for$5. See Ben Lanigan to purchase a ticket.
  • The Men’s Basketball team played strong team defense in the first half, holding Charlottetown Rural to only 26 points. But costly turnovers in the second half led to more scoring opportunities for a Rural team that caught fire beyond the three point line, and the Vikings were not able to keep pace despite a strong effort from all players. Of note: The Vikings were without Starters Brett Birt-Lundrigan and Cameron Glover who were on the bench with matching crutches and ankle injuries. Good luck to the players and all students who are writing final exams. FINAL SCORE: MRHS 32 Rural 64
  • All Girls interested in playing for Montague Regional High School’s Hockey team are asked to please sign up in Student Services. Tryouts will take place February 6th! Cost is $5 for tryouts!
  • Last call to all Boys A and AA Hockey Players:  You have until Thursday to sign up and pay $5 for try-outs (which will take place after exams). See Earl Campbell.
