Our Students have Spirit: This week our students and staff participated in a school-wide spirit week to celebrate the beginning of spring. On Monday students wore their pajamas and ate pancakes in the cafeteria. On Tuesday we all wore purple to create awareness for those affected by Epilepsy. Our students in room 104 distributed buttons and ribbons and raised over $100 in their “Change for Change” drive. SAC also hosted a clothing drive for the Salvation Army, as a school we collected a room full of clothes. On Wednesday we dressed up in suits and ties and today students and staff wore their favourite sport team’s jersey. Congratulations to our SAC for hosting these events.
