During Chapel, November 8, the Elementary Campus will focus on Remembrance Day.

Each student will be given the opportunity to wear a poppy. These poppies are from the Royal Canadian Legion. Before Friday, we encourage you to speak with your child about Remembrance Day and its significance. If you desire, please have your children bring a small coin donation for the poppies they will be receiving this Friday.

We look forward to supporting & honouring our veterans who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. Thank you.
