Live A Legacy

Our school theme this year is "Live A Legacy". Last year our theme was "Who Will We Be" where students thought about what they wanted our new school to be. This year we take that to the next level and begin to Live the Legacy that we want to leave behind. We will revisit this theme throughout the year with a time capsule, various classroom initiatives and an exciting "Live Different" presentation later in the year.

Principal's Message

November 2017

​Hello Parents,
November always feels like the end of chapter one in our four chapter school year. All of our start up activities (school photos, etc.) have come to an end and students are fully invested in their school work. The new band students no longer squawk as much when they play, and our first three sports (cross-country, soccer and volleyball) have ended or will shortly. To conclude this first chapter we look forward to our first student-led conferences on November 16th and 17th. This is a chance to celebrate the learning that we have done thus far. Our grade 6 students will have their genius hour work on display during the conferences as well.
On November 10th we will be remembering our veterans and their sacrifice at our school’s first Remembrance Day service. The service will begin at 10:30am. Parents are invited to attend.
Some other items of note include the start of the wrestling season on November 13th. All students are eligible to practice with the team and there are no cuts. Practices will all be held after school.
On December 1st we have partnered with Safe 4 Life to offer a safety training program for tweens. This is after school hours and registration is through Safe 4 Life.
Thanks to all parents for your continued support. We look forward to a great second chapter!​
Ryan O'Shaughnessy
