Mrs. Spruyt generously donated her time to take four Grade 9 students to a safety conference last week. The students learned valuable safety tools in driving skills and general youth safety.

Student-led conference and parent council home-based business fair coincided with each other last week and both were well attended. Many home-based businesses showed up for the night with a wide range of goods and wares for sale. Any parents who missed purchasing a gym strip for their children can purchase the T-shirts at the school’s office.

The first Parent Council meeting for the 2009-10 school year went well with many in attendance for the evening. Elections were held and all positions will remain the same this year as was voted in last year.

The next parent council meeting is scheduled for Oct. 27.

Happy birthday wishes go out to Sean Higgins Oct. 9, Benjamin Bauman Oct. 11, and Darren Gendre Oct. 13.
