Toonie Tuesweek!

toonieOur teams are in fierce competition to win the Toonie Tuesday challenge!  Funds raised go towards local projects around our community (SMS has applied for donations to our Sport Court, a Buddy Bench and a guest speaker), and support for the village we have adopted in Tanzania.  If everyone brings a toonie, we will have over $1,400!  Little things make a big difference!  Team competition closes this Friday.

So Much Snow (and Brrrrr!) Week of Jan. 13th-17th

 

 

We were treated to a fabulous concert on Friday.  Mr. Izik-Dzurco and his Jackson Band spent the morning rehearsing with Ms. Beach and our Grade 8 Band.  After just a few hours of rehearsal, they played together in Period 6 on Friday.  Well done, musicians!  All grade 7 and 9 band students will be on stage the evening of January 27th for our Winter Band Concert.  This is always a popular event so come early!

We are already receiving inquiries as to whether school will be in session tomorrow.  We will let you know if we hear of any closures, otherwise, please prepare to be in session providing it is safe to get your child(ren) to school.  The school district provided extra snow removal over the weekend.  Please be extra careful with the extremely high snowbanks when driving in and around the school.  We have extra supervision out to help with safety, but need everyone to take care.  We will have extra inside options for lunch time given the extremely cold weather heading our way.  Here is a look at the upcoming week:
