Pink Shirt Day February 28, 2018: This year, Pink Shirt Day is on Wednesday, February 28, 2018.  Students and staff are encouraged to wear pink as a demonstration of our need to work together to promote healthy relationships and prevent bullying. Being proactive in preventing bullying means we accept shared responsibility for creating and maintaining learning and work environments that are safe and welcoming for all students, their families and staff. Participating in events like Pink Shirt Day shows leadership in our schools and communities. This display of support is the foundation for creating bullying prevention strategies and modelling healthy relationships. For more information on welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environments, please visit the Alberta Education website. T-shirts can also be purchased at London Drugs, 100% of net proceeds from official merchandise are donated to programs supporting children’s healthy self-esteem, teaching empathy, compassion and kindness. The Red Cross will be here at lunch on February 26, 2018 to distribute 100 free t-shirts and talk to students about bullying prevention.


Attention Grade 7 Parents: If you have not had the opportunity yet to complete the Accountability Pillar Survey that was mailed to you from Alberta Education in January, we would appreciate it if you would take the time to complete it.  Information from this survey helps the school and the school division identify areas of strength and areas for growth. 


Calgary Food Bank Drive: Thanks to all those families who contributed to the Calgary Inter-Faith Food Bank Society this past holiday season. The activity brought in 120lbs of goods. “Because of your generosity, you enable us to keep pace and to support all who come through our doors” – Calgary Food Bank
