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!

Mr. Bratton

Middle School Gamers!

Reminder to Middle School Gamers,

Bad News: The “Gaming Room” C151 will be off-limits to gamers starting Monday April 10th (note the closed door in the picture below!)

Why?: This room will be used by Grade 5 students and teacher as a hub for PYPx. Cool, right!?

Good News: It’s Spring! You can play outside instead Monday-Thursday and attend Game Day on Friday’s in the Library Foyer! Lucky you!

Big No-No: Gaming in the library is not okay. Reading? Yes! Working? Yes! Gaming NO!

Please see Mr. Bratton if you have any questions!

Life 101 Tomorrow!

Hello Grade 6-12 Rockstars,

Tomorrow you will have Life 101 instead of Extended Advisory. This is to make-up a session we missed a few weeks back. Please check in with your advisor tomorrow and head to your usual Life 101 spot.


Student-Led Conferences Wednesday

Hello Grade 6-10 Students,

Your student-led conferences are this Wednesday! See the FAQ’s below:

  1. Do I have to come? Yes! 
  2. Really? Yes!
  3. Why should I? To show off all the cool stuff you can do. Impressed parents are more generous, just sayin’.

  5. What should I bring? Your charged laptop and at least one parent…
  6. What if my parents are busy? Tag along with someone else!
  7. What time? When it’s convenient for your parents or surrogate.
  8. Do we sign up? No, you sign IN 

See you then!

MUN Room Clean-Out

Hello All,

D248, otherwise known as the “MUN Room” will begin a repurposing on Friday, March 24th. The Maths teacher and MUN supervisors have done a great job removing relevant materials, now it’s your turn. Please consider this a “last call” for any and all materials in this space. Highlights include notepads, water bottles, and a mountain of shredded paper!

Grade 6 Grounded

The Privilege: Grade 6 gets to use the Upstairs of our lovely cafeteria…

The Responsibility: To use this space, all students need to clean-up after themselves, respect the furniture, and generally act in a caring, principled way.

The Issue: This is not happening with many of our Grade 6 students…

The Consequence: Grade 6 are NOT allowed in the upstairs of our lovely Cafeteria for the rest of the month.

The Hope: These extra few weeks of brain development will lead to increased maturity and responsibility!

The Complaints:  See Mr. Bratton
