It’s a “C-D” Day!

Welcome to the following guest staff today: Donna White, Janet MacDougall-Turner for Craig Conohan, and Dean Lackie for Ronnie Munn.

Happy Birthday to Cody Fitzpatrick and Dakota McKearney.

Found: CGA jump drive was left in the Library during A Block last Friday. Check at the office if you are missing this item.

Highlights for Today:

  • Homeroom teachers: In your mailboxes is a list of students in your A Block who have overdue items. These sheets are blue and should be reviewed and posted with the class. All of these accounts have been restricted until items are returned. Some are owing from September and October! Students may see Mrs. Killeen at break time to renew or return, or to use the drop box in the hallway. Thanks so much. Teachers, just let me know if there are any issues with students on your list that may no longer be in your class.
  • All Grade 12 students considering UPEI next year should attend the meeting today from 12:30 to 1:45. This is very important!  You must have teacher permission to attend this session.
  • Any male members of the Disney Choir who did not already pick up their shoes from Ms. Beck must come see her at first break this morning.
  • Looking for a way to say something special for Valentine’s Day? Try CSLC’s cupcake grams that are on sale this week for $2. You will need to know where to find the recipient during C Block, so cupcakes can be delivered.
  • Find your perfect match at MRHS by purchasing your matchmaker results this week for $2.
  • Want a new and interesting way to tell that special person that you love them? If you are interested in purchasing a singing love telegram to send to a loved one, see a member of the Disney Choir or contact Montague High School and choose from our list of songs. The telegrams cost $20 and will be delivered anywhere in Kings County or the Charlottetown area.
