Spirit Week ends today with Hallowe’en Costume Dress-Up Day. Those who dress up, be sure to stop by Ms. Beaton’s room (Room 139) at lunch for a treat. Hope to see lots of ghosts and goblins!

It’s Library Week at MRHS!

  • Those who are dressed as your favorite literary character today should visit the Library and get a chance to win a free book!
  • Postcards for Peace is a learning activity in which youth send messages of thanks to those who served and those who continue to serve Canada in times of war, military conflict and peace. If students wish to send a postcard to a veteran, the Library will cover the cost of the postage. Postcards should contain an appropriate message and no personal information should be shared. Please get your postcard in the Library and return it by Thursday, November 5. See Mrs. Killeen for more details. Parents and community members will have an opportunity to fill one out Wednesday evening, November 4, at evening service.
