Faculty and staff appreciation lunch

Many thanks to all the Grade 4 and Secondary School parents that contributed enough food to fill three tables for the Elementary and Secondary faculty and school staff to enjoy the first Whole School Appreciation Lunch this year. We are planning another probably in May. The teachers and staff really enjoy this show of appreciation and it's wonderful to see them all together enjoying good food and fellowship.
