Whistler Road Update

Parents, guardians, and students, please be aware that tomorrow’s scheduled Whistler trip will continue as planned. Students are requested to meet no later than 5:45 AM at the front of the school. Whistler will be open tomorrow and it is highly unlikely that the roads will be closed.

In the unlikely event that the roads are closed, staff will wait with the students at the school until such time when the trip can continue as scheduled. Parents can be assured that the trip will not run if the highway is deemed unsafe, and staff will take every precaution to ensure safety remains a top priority.

It is, however, expected that the trip will go as planned. See you tomorrow morning!

Thank you to all parents/guardians, siblings, and friends who joined us for Mini School’s Potluck 2016! With your help, Mini School raised $1602.60 between the five baskets on silent auction and raffle. All proceeds will go to the soup kitchen when the Mini 12s volunteer their time in the New Year.

Pictures of the event are now up on the Photos page. Thank you to everyone–family, staff and students alike–who made the event a success!

Potluck: Date Change

IMG_1413To accommodate the basketball opener, Mini School’s annual potluck is moving one day forward from Tuesday, December 6th to Wednesday, December 7th.

Please note that this is contrary to what has been printed in the school calendar issued earlier in the school year.

We hope that this date change does not seriously inconvenience the guests attending that night, and we look forward to seeing you all there from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM!
