Upcoming Messages this week

  • Board year-end message: An email from our Board President will arrive on Thursday.
  • One last Buzz next Tuesday: You’ll receive one more Buzz message. If there are any other important, time-sensitive messages to share, we’ll send them out through this Buzz distribution list.


Wednesday: Elementary Lost & Found AND Used Book Sale

We’ll have the Elementary Lost & Found items spread out in the Courtyard on Wednesday. AND while you’re there, take a peek through some used books! Starting at 3:30 p.m.

Used Book Sale

Send your child to school with some loonies, or bring a pocket of change when you pick up your child at dismissal. We have a great selection of books for adults, young adults and children. Come one, come all! All proceeds from the Used Book Sale will benefit the school Library.

Waterloo Casa trip to Engine 4

With a couple of our Junior High buddies, Waterloo Casa took a stroll down to Fire House #4 last week for a thrilling visit with the firefighters. What a blast!



MA played 6 games at the North London Athletic fields last Tuesday, and the first four were tough games. We then played in the division semi-finals and won, taking us to the final. Unfortunately, we lost a tough game in the final 1-0. Thanks to all who came out to play, it was a great day to be outside and play soccer!!


UE 2 Phasing In

On Friday, during Phasing In, UE2 painted friendship rocks and wrote a virtue on it. At the end of the day the rocks went into the bucket and they chose one to take home.


Junior High Parent Visits!

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? The Junior High students were pumped to welcome their parents into the Junior High learning environments last Wednesday.

JH Phasing In!

The future Year 7’s joined their classmates in the Junior High building on Friday, and prepared lunch together among other activities.

Junior High… ‘Phasing Out’

On Friday, after a full morning of rehearsing their grad speeches, our soon-to-be graduates enjoyed some special moments together before graduation! They had lunch and bowled at Palasad Socialbowl!
