Exhibition Parent Meeting

Hello parents!


Please be advised that we will have a meeting on Tuesday, February 27 from 8:00-8:30 in the Faculty Dining Room to discuss exhibition. Please note that students will not attend this meeting and will have a meeting with teachers immediately following. This is a time where you can come and get crucial information about exhibition and we look forward to having you there.


Thank you, we look forward to seeing you there and answering your questions.

Talk It Up

Currently, we are writing persuasive speeches in Grade 5. Students have selected a wide variety of topics and are trying to persuade others to take an action.

Two students from each class will be selected to present their speeches in the Bolshoi Theater on Thursday, February 15, from 12:45 to 1:45,

This event is open to parents to come and see. We ask that if you attend that you stay for the whole hour to see all the students’ speeches.
