Strikers Weekly - Week of January 28, 2018











Though just half way through the year, it is time for our students to take a brief pause and think ahead to next year. While it is not our intention to fully draw attention to the important year in progress, to ensure a smooth transition into next year, students currently in grade 8 to 11 will need to begin to think of course selection for the following year.






Grade 7 Program Planning and Information Night combined with Hands on Night provided interested on lookers some important information about our school, what we offer, and what some of the elective choices may look like... more importantly, this was an opportunity to see the amazing talent of so many of our students.
