  • There certainly have been a lot of natural disasters and bad news lately and in times of loss and tragedy we can begin to lose hope… or… we can chose to bring hope.  We can help bring hope to students and staff in Puerto Rico who have suffered major infrastructure damage from two powerful hurricanes last month. Most of the island is without power and water weeks after the storms hit and schools have been closed for some time. Today, of the 1,200 schools in the state, only 22 have opened in a limited capacity. http://www.cnn.com/interactive/2017/09/world/hurricane-maria-puerto-rico-cnnphotos/

     We have a long history of helping others with district and school campaigns… Haiti, Japan, Nepal and we want to add Puerto Rico public education to our list. Taking action is a win win for all of us! We want to try and get funds to a local on the ground charity that will be able to help. … The AMPR will be able to direct needed help to teachers and their families who have been devastated by these storms so that they may get back to the important work of teaching children.   If you wish to help support this fundraising effort we have setup an optional item online Puerto Rico – Choose to Bring Hopefor all schools that will give parents the opportunity of making a contribution on-line at your convenience.

Thank you.

On the graduation program we are proud to list scholarships/ bursaries that our students receive. Any graduating student who has received a scholarship or bursary, including entrance scholarships, and would like to have them recognized on the graduation program needs to submit documentation of the scholarship to Mr. Steve Harris, Guidance Department.  The deadline for providing them to Mr. Harris is Friday, June 16th.

This is a message for all parents of grade 11 students.  The school year is coming to a close and with it comes preparation for many end of year events, including graduation.  Each year, the graduation ceremony is always followed by a reception for the graduates and their families, and it is traditionally organized by the grade 11 class.  In order to provide refreshments and food for this reception, the parents of grade 11 students are kindly asked to make a monetary donation to help cover expenses.  It is completely voluntary, with a suggested amount of $20, though any donation would be greatly appreciated.  The donation can be paid online through school cash, or brought to the school office. Thank you.

The end of the year Grad Council newsletter has gone home today. You will find information about graduation, graduation rehearsals, prom and safe grad on this newsletter. You can also find this newsletter under the news section on the school’s website.
