Additional PA Day Added
The Halton District School Board has determined Friday April 8th, 2016, as the additional Professional Activity Day (PA Day) to be added to the current school year calendar.  Please be aware that schools will be closed to students on this date.

Pizza Days
If you still want to order pizza for next term (February – June), we will be accepting payment for Pizza Day through Cashless Schools until Friday January 29th.  You don’t need to hand in a form.  Once you’ve paid by Cashless, a pizza form is automatically generated for your child.

Thanks to parents for using Cashless Schools to pay for pizza, on Monday February 1st, two names will be randomly selected from the Cashless orders.  These two students will receive one slice of pizza FREE for the whole term (a $20 value). 

If you require help with Cashless Schools, please contact Mrs. Crivelli (crivellia@hdsb.ca) or Mrs. Thomas (thomasl@hsdb.ca) in the main office.

Bring I.T. Initiative
Our students are excited by the opportunity to use their devices to support their learning.  Whether they use them to research information or to show their thinking, their devices are a valuable learning tool.  Students are intuitively expert when using a platform that they have chosen themselves and use regularly outside of school.  As many of us know, the creative uses for devices today are nearly endless.  As such we encourage the responsible use of personal devices in our school. Your child’s teacher will be able to provide detailed information on the use of devices in their classrooms.  All students in Grades 6-8 will be receiving a letter that explains the Bring I.T. initiative in more detail.  The letter will require a parent AND student signature.
