I am looking for any students who would be interested in signing Christmas cards that could be sent to nursing homes, where some residents may not even receive a card. I will buy the cards....all you need to do is write a short message inside that sends a kind and caring thought. Please come to the Youth Health Centre and let me know if you are interested.... we could do this early next week.
Thank you so much for your phenomenal response yesterday to the Therapy Dogs. It was heartwarming to see such an overwhelming positive impact on our students and staff. The facilitator of the Therapy Dogs was very impressed with how the students engaged so deeply with the dogs and commented a number of times on the respectful and polite behaviour of all the students who thanked them for coming to the school. Maybe we can bring them back during Mental Health Awareness week next spring.
Just a reminder that there will be wrestling practice today and tomorrow after school from 3:00 until 4:30 . If you would like to give it a try it is still not too late to join the team.
