Game Day! (and a joke)

Q: What did the pirate say on his 80th birthday?

Game Day is on tomorrow (Friday) at 1:00 in the back of the library. We’ve had lots of Jenga, Uno, Egyptian, Operation, and a variety of other games played over the past few weeks. Come check it out, socialize, have fun, and see if you can beat your teachers!

Antiquities available


If anyone is planning on making a time capsule or wants to show students what cassette tapes, VHS tapes and film cameras look like- the resource room is getting rid of a tub. First come first serve.

Inter-house Trivia Quiz

Mr Hornell’s wacky inter-house trivia quiz will be held this Friday during advisory. Each advisory class should create three teams (2-4 people in each).

Advisors – Please agree a location where you can meet with one advisory class from each of the other two houses.  The same groups that competed in the music quiz should work best.

Good luck!

Grade 6 Upstairs

Hello Grade 6 Angels,

Your upstairs cafeteria privileges are now restored on a probationary basis. To keep them you must:

-Clean up after yourselves (that means helping each other)

-Respect the furniture

-Treat each other kindly in word and deed

The next offense will result in the upstairs of the cafeteria being off-limits to all Grade 6 students for the remainder of the school year…

You can do it!
