A Delightful Spring Concert!

It took much singing in the rain, walking on sunshine, and wondering about where the wind goes, but they got it done! Those tulips finally made an appearance.

A great job, students, and a BIG thank you to Mrs. M-G and her helpers
for a wonderful Spring Concert.

2nd Annual Stuffy Day

Thank you to all our students, parents and staff who participated in and contributed to our Stuffy Day in memory of Nathan Costain.  It was a wonderful day and a great success. We raised $430.00 for the P.E.I. Special Olympics.

Students in Grade 6A and 6B took a moment to remember Nathan, placing their stuffies around the tree that was planted in his memory.
