  • Today is Waste Free Wednesday. Green Team please come to Mr. Pinkerton’s room following announcements.
  • Tomorrow is the last day to bring in your gently used items for the Swap and Shop.  Why are we having a Swap and Shop anyway? Swapping or trading items means we are reusing instead of buying new STUFF and throwing out old STUFF. Plus, it’s lots of fun. Why is this important? The world gets dirtier and more polluted every day. Our water, soil and air needs to be clean for people to survive. Everyone needs to be responsible so people can avoid a dirty world and choose a healthy future instead.
  • During the 2nd break today in the library, any intermediate students in grade 7 and 8 who wish to audition for the intermediate talent show need to meet Mr. McLean.  See you in the library at 2nd break.  
  • Junior Girls basketball practice today at 10:35. We will be using half of the gym today so come prepared with all forms, lunches and shoes.
  • Junior Boys that have been selected to play on the basketball team will have practice today at 10:35, using the other half of the gym. Please see Mrs. Napasney in the gym for instructions.
  • All members of the leadership team please meet with Mrs. Dea in her classroom-134, at first break today.

  • Tomorrow is Waste Free Wednesday. Please try to reduce your garbage and recycling. It’s one of the best ways to fight climate change and reduce your carbon footprint.  Next week our whole school is encouraged to bring Waste Free Lunches all week long.  If we are optimistic and we all work together, we can avoid serious environmental problems in the future.
  • Keep bringing in your Swap and Shop gently used items to help reduce garbage in our landfills and avoid buying more STUFF. One student’s used item may be another student’s treasure. Remember, each item you bring is worth one item at the Swap and Shop. Bring books, toys, cd’s, board games, action figures, dolls, movies, lego sets, and more. Each item should fit in a backpack.

Flood Warning Issued – see attachment

Flood Warning April 11 2014

The Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority advises that the Flood Watch issued April 7, 2014, is upgraded to a Flood Warning. Flows in the Lower Nottawasaga River downstream of the Minesing Wetlands and Wasaga Beach are now reaching critical levels and continue to rise. Municipalities, emergency services and individual landowners in flood-prone areas should monitor conditions closely and take necessary actions as required. Streamflows in all other watercourses are very high, and a Flood Watch continues for these areas.
