Clue: The Play 
Nelson Mandela's Drama Department will be presenting Clue: The Play this week. The play will run from March 15th till March 17th with showtime at 7pm. 
Student Washrooms 
Through surveys and student voice, students have shared that one of the places they feel least safe in the school are student washrooms. We are asking students to limit the number of individuals in any given washroom to 5. If a washroom is full, we ask that students wait outside or find a different one. This message will be reinforced with students through Connect class this week.  
Assurance Survey 
This is a final reminder to Grade 10 families that you will have received a document in the mail with instructions and an access code for the annual Assurance survey for Alberta Education. Engagement and the responses provided are important factors when identifying priorities for the school and areas for improvement. Currently, only 6% of our families have replied, the survey only takes 5-10 minutes, if you have any questions, please contact the school. Survey closes on March 17th. 
School Planning Survey 
Another survey that helps with the planning of the next school year in our School Planning Survey. This survey is currently live and can be found at The survey only takes about 10 minutes to complete and allows all families to have a say on what is prioritized in the School Development Plan and the fees that are charged. This survey is also translated into several languages including Punjabi, Hindi and Arabic.
