Covid-19 Contact Tracing in Schools Notice

Halloween @ Rankin

To celebrate Halloween this year, we are holding a variety of activities. On Wednesday, Oct. 28th we will be doing a Halloween Trail Walk. Students from grades 7-12 have prepared to decorate the trail in the Halloween theme. Please ensure that students are dressed warmly for the day with proper footwear. Students from grades from Pre-primary-6 will be walking the trail after lunch.

On Friday, Oct. 30th, we are celebrating Halloween by allowing students and staff to dress up. Keep in mind that due to Covid-19 restrictions our regular face masks are required. We are not permitted to wear any costume masks at school. Treats from home are also not permitted this year. The school will provide pre-packaged treats on Friday.

Terry Fox Walk…A little different this year.

The staff and students will be supporting the Terry Fox Walk once again this year with a few adjustments.  We have received permission from the Highland Village to walk as cohorts up at the Village site.

Fundraising will be done differently this year.  I am posting a link here in this post where you can donate to the Terry Fox Foundation online via this link.  This link allows all monies collected to be credited to our school.  Thanks for your continued support!!
