We hope everyone enjoyed a nice long weekend. Now we are back and getting all the lowdown on everyone’s weekend.

The 101 Dalmatian play was a great success! Thank you to Mr. Graham, Mrs. McCarthy, Mr. Hancock, Mrs. Deckert, Mrs. Furlong, Mrs. Farrell and all the students and staff for all their hard work. Everyone did an exceptional job.

On Wednesday of this week students Jasmine Penney, Carla du Toit, Claire Reynolds and Mr. Graham were interviewed by CBC radio. The students also sang Kanine Krunchies for the radio and again for cable 9 TV.

Last week there was a draw for a big screen TV. Dave Pardy of Corner Brook was the lucky winner.

CRT’s began yesterday for grades 3 and 6. Good luck everyone and try your best.
