    We are happy to let you know that we will be holding Student-Led Conferences on Thursday, April 18th from 8:30am – 3:30pm at the school.  This will not be a regular school day, and students attend only for their Conference time, in their school uniform.  The link to sign up was emailed to parents earlier this week.  If you haven’t signed up for a time yet, please do so soon as the spaces are quickly filling up. School-aged siblings are encouraged to bring a book or quiet activity and they are welcome to sit outside on a chair in the hallway while they are waiting their turn. There is no child-minding available on this day.  Don’t forget to stop by the gym on this day for game of family Pickleball!

  • McCarthy Uniform Bundle

    McCarthy Uniforms is offering bundle savings to our school community.  These bundles offer an additional coupon incentive that can be used later in the year to top up the student’s uniform. These bundles also offer a 2 year and 1 year exchange policy.  These bundles will be available on the McCarthy website, in their stores and through their Call Centre beginning on Wednesday May 1st.

    McCarthy encourages families to take advantage of these bundles and to shop early to avoid frustration and potential delays in the last days before school starts.  Please note that items purchased between May 1st and August 15th, 2024, can be returned, and exchanged until September 15th, 2024. Their general return/exchange policy is 30 days for items in their original condition that have not been washed, worn, or altered and still have tags attached.
