These books are filled with hundreds of coupons for a variety of restaurants, golf, entertainment & much more. A new added feature this year will be that with… Read More
We are trying something a little different this year with assembly times. Last year, we found that the same classes always missed Phys. Ed or Music when we had an assembly. So, we want to try adjusting the assembly times throughout the day so this does not happen. We realize this will be less routine than it has been in the past, so your feedback is always welcome. The time of the assembly will be posted on the website calendar,… Read More

Our new traffic plan is now fully implemented. Thank-you for your patience as we have fined tuned things over the last few weeks. We are very pleased with the improvement this has made to our traffic flow. However, we cannot control every aspect of what happens on the streets around the school.
