FROM THE PRINCIPAL:

The countdown is on: only 36 days of school left!  Please be mindful that we are starting into a fun time of the year, with field trips and activities, however there are many assessments going on in these coming weeks as well. It is important that your child be on time and at school, especially if there are assessments in their class.

Microforest

Several members from our Wakefield community are helping us start a microforest at our school.  We need a creative, low cost border to put around it to keep the soil in and wandering feet out:) If you have a suggestion please email Kelly Peskett ( kpeskett@wqsb.qc.ca.).  Thank you!
