Grade 9 Parents Meeting – Band Trip & Ottawa/Quebec Trip

Dear Grade 9 Parents and Guardians, we would like to invite you to two very important information meetings being held here at the school on Monday, September 29. The first meeting will be for Grade 9 band parents at 6:30 in the band room. Mrs. Andrew will share information regarding the band trip and will outline the dates and itinerary.

At 7:15 Monday evening, we also welcome you to attend an information session in our cafeteria regarding our Ottawa/Quebec City trip. We encourage your participation in this event to give us an idea of how many students may wish to join us on this Grade 9 trip. John Dunphy from Target Tours will present the itinerary as well as other important information.

We look forward to seeing you Monday evening!

Home and School Meeting

September 24th at 7:00 p.m. in the Conference Room. Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Head lice (pediculosis)

There is always a possibility a case of head lice (pediculosis) can be found in school. It is always prudent to regularly check your child’s hair for lice and nits (eggs).

School children get head lice more often than adults. When students interact, their heads may touch, allowing lice to crawl from head to head. As well, lice can live away from a human host for up to three days.

If you do find that your child has head lice, please inform the school.

Additional information can be obtained from Health PEI – Public Health Nursing at 902-368-4530.


We would like to welcome you to meet the staff on Thursday, September 11 at 7:00. The session will begin in the cafeteria and then we will have two 20-minute sessions with teachers in the classrooms. We welcome everyone to return to the cafeteria, or new courtyard, weather permitting for a social and snack at the conclusion of these sessions. A school tour will take place at 6:30 for interested parents. We look forward to seeing you at this event.
