With First Holy Communion, Walkathon, Confirmation, Grade 7 Farewell, spring sports, year-end music and dance recitals, the final three months of the school year are very busy and seem to fly by. I encourage you to enjoy and cherish this time of the year and all the activities in which your children are involved. In preparation for this weekend’s Provincial Tournament, our Odyssey of the Mind teams have been busy tweaking, adjusting and perfecting their competition problems since the Qualifying Tournament. We want to wish our teams the best of luck!
