Study Block students may use Room 201.  If students require the use of a computer to print during lunch, go to Learning Centre Room 95. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Hockey Pool Update:  After rounds of the playoffs, Mrs. Killeen’s brother is in the lead. Mr. Killeen is third and Earl is currently in fourth.  Ms. Evans-Renaud, thanks to Joel Ward, made an amazing jump from 65th to 57th. The Envirothon Team would like to thank Ms. McLane for her ten dollar donation as she sits in a disappointing 135th!
