Good afternoon everyone!

I hope you had a wonderful March Break. We enjoyed some time in North Bay, where we skied and went for long walks on the lake. Then we headed to Toronto for a night and toured around the CN Tower and Ripley’s Aquarium. **Please note that tomorrow is sibling picture day. Please ensure students are in their full dress uniform.**

Fun on the lake and ice fishing!
