This is an event put on by parents of grade nine students, independent of the school and staff.
Date: Monday, June 25th, 2018
Place: Charlottetown Hotel, Kent Street
Dress: Semi Formal (no jeans)
Tickets must be purchased before the dance and will be for sale during lunch hour on June 6th, 7th and 8th.
Students are permitted to take a date from another school. This ticket will have to be
purchased with their own ticket and each QC student must purchase their own ticket.
Contact information of a parent or guardian for each student will be required at the time of
purchase. Regular dance rules will apply: students are not permitted back into the dance if they leave and
there will be zero tolerance for any illegal activities and parents would be contacted.
The dance will be supervised by Charlottetown Police. In addition to this, we are looking for
several parent volunteers to chaperone the event. Please contact Janice Hopkirk at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are able to help out or have any questions.
We look forward to a fun event and a chance for this wonderful group of graduating students to celebrate their successes and their time together at Queen Charlotte.

Effective April 6, the National Public Alerting system where EMOs across the country will now be able to push life threatening alerts will be active on all compatible wireless devices. On May 9th at 1:55 p.m. PEI EMO will be conducting a live test of the system. The system does not allow cellphone users/owners to opt out of the alerts and only newer compatible devices will receive the alerts. Attached here is a brief outline of the system. Visit the website for additional information http://www.alertready.ca
Many students and school staff that carry a compatible wireless device will receive this test message on May 9th. Individuals with their devices on silent will not hear the alert sound however their phone will vibrate and they will receive a text like message with a message to the effect of…”This is only a test. This is a scheduled test of the Public Alerting System from Prince Edward Island’s Emergency Measures Organization. If this had been an actual emergency or threat, you would receive instructions that would assist you to protect you and your family. This is only a test. No Action is required.”

We want to thank everyone for their financial donations for the Humboldt Broncos fundraiser. QC staff and students raised $645. We have posted the link below if others would like to support the Broncos. QC will also be sending QC CARES cards to the team. Students signed their own card and added a personal comment. We would also like to thank everyone for wearing green or a jersey as well as the ribbons that were made by some our grade nine students. Stay Humboldt Strong.
