  • What a fantastic Christmas social we had this year! Kudos to our social committee (Agopian, Da Costa, Gintoli, Malott, Simone, Tbanjajian, Visconti, Zabana) for putting together the best Christmas social ever! There were cool lounging areas set up with tents and bean bags, various activity stations set up (dart boards, golf putting, bean bags toss, and target game that ensures everyone gets a prize), an array of good food and drinks, and of course the exciting lucky draw! Thanks to everyone who participated and made it to a good time for all!
  • Thanks to all staff who gave of their time to meet with Parents/Guardians of their subject students and TAs! We appreciate your preparation and honest conversations and hope you found the evening to be productive. Thanks, also, to Josie for collecting preference sheet and Paulette for arranging our delicious dinner that provided fuel for the evening session and thank you to Eileen for helping with Parent Teacher Interviews in many ways and for gathering volunteers! Our caretakers and volunteers did an amazingly efficient job of setting up and clearing the gym out too! Thanks everyone for your support to enable these great things to happen!
  • Many thanks to Nadia, the members of SAC, and Nicole Powell and Photo Club students for all of their hard work in once again bringing us “Photos with Santa”; an excellent way to help us get into the Christmas Spirit!

Tips of the Week.jpg


TA Tip(s) of the week


As Christmas Holidays are fast approaching, so are family gathering and trips. This week is a great time to remind advisees who are going to be either leaving early for holidays, or returning a bit after January 7th, that the school requires written notice of their absence, sent directly to Angela Cardinale.


Have a great week, everyone!​
