Pizza, Pizza, Pizza

Due to transition day Pizza Lunch will be running a bit differently today.  Please listen. 

All grade eight classes will have their pizza delivered to their classrooms, before having to leave for transition day. Please stay in your classrooms. Any grade eight student who goes to the foyer pizza service table will not be given any pizza. Please be patient. The front foyer will be the only pizza service station. This will serve the grade sixes and grade sevens who as usual will need to wait in their classrooms for a runner to escort them there.  Happy Pizza Day


Happy Rainbow Week! Everyone who’s wearing rainbow please meet in the foyer at nut break for a photo to celebrate how awesome we look!
