    Principal’s Message

    I’m excited to share some updates regarding our Jr. High Career and Technology Foundation (CTF) option classes for the upcoming school year. I believe these changes will greatly benefit our students and enhance their ability to be Flourishing Learners.

    Starting next year, students will have the opportunity to select four different CTF options throughout the academic year (rather than the three they currently select). This means they’ll engage in a diverse range of activities that cater to their interests and strengths. For example, they might choose to participate in 3D Printing, Robotics, Culinary Arts, and Environmental Science over the course of the year.

    Some CTF options will require consecutive term selections. This ensures that students have ample time to delve deeply into certain subjects and work on substantial final projects. For instance, if a student selects Drama or Paint the Walls, they’ll need to commit to consecutive terms to allow for the development and completion of their projects. This extended time frame allows for more in-depth exploration and fosters a sense of mastery in the chosen area.

    I want to extend our heartfelt appreciation to our Junior High team for their dedication to innovation and their willingness to provide feedback on the CTF program. Their input has been invaluable in shaping this enhanced learning experience for our students.

    Overall, I believe that these changes will empower our students to explore their passions, develop new skills, and take ownership of their learning journey. As we continue to focus on being Kingdom Builders; I think these will allow students to figure out how to be “Flourishing Learners, who Delight in God, and are Inspired to Serve.”

    Le Carnaval – April 18

    We braved a cold and unexpected winter-like day on Thursday, April 18th for Le Carnaval. Traditionally held in the winter, but postponed this year because of the extreme temperatures earlier this year. The Grade 6 French Class planned and led the grade 4 & 5 students through various outdoor activities, including Octopus Crab Tag, The Floor is Lava, Spud, Le Football, Mini World Cup, An Obstacle Course, Secret Church and La Tire (Maple Taffy). The snow was collected by the students in our Polar Bear Club and frozen in our school deep freeze, so that we could make La Tire the traditional way of rolling it in the snow.  A frosty and fun time was had by all! 

    Snack Menu:

    🥔 Chips: $1.00

    🥤 Cans of Pop: $2.00

    🍭 Candy Bags: $1.00
