Many thanks for all the bells that were submitted this week!  We now have the happy problem of more-bells-than-weeks for the rest of the school year. We still have a few scheduled weeks (e.g. DP exams, Brown, Bratton, Joyce & Norbraten), but will still try to get as many bells in as possible. We will also move some to August of 1819, before the next year’s schedule takes place.

Thanks for the influx of bells – we really appreciate it!

Reminder – Update your Microsoft Office

A reminder to all Students and Staff to regularly click “yes” to running the Microsoft updates. Not only will you get access to new and improved tools in your Office 365 suite of software, but your software will run better too. For more information, check out how to do it here.

No Open Gym today

There will be no Girls’ Open Gym today, but we’ll be back after the break! See you then!

Ultimate Frisbee

The Game About Throwing a Frisbee

What makes Ultimate Frisbee so ultimate is not that other sports are not ultimate, or are less ultimate, it’s because it is the only sport with the name that has the word ultimate within it, ultimately making Ultimate Frisbee indeed, ultimate.

When: Starting on the 26th of March, Mondays and Wednesdays after school, each will session will probably be from 40 minutes to an hour

Where: Football Field           Who: Grades 6 to 12                         What: Read the title again                          Why: Why not

Another thing about this activity is that none of these dates or grade levels are set, so if you are for example in grade 5 and want to join, email either Fari, or me, Muyen if you would like rot join. Or email Mr Hutchison.

Unrelated Fact: Notice the word “Frisbee” by itself is actually capitalized as this is a trademarked name by the Wham-O toy company, yet Ultimate Frisbee is still used as the name of the sport only using Ultimate Disc in official discussion. Also, it was the owner’s family name.

Bells (again)

Many thanks to all the people who submitted bells yesterday morning. Also, thanks to those advisories who said they haven’t heard their bells yet. I’ll double check my schedule, see what happened, and make sure that any missing bells go in before I start plugging the holes.
