PARENT/STUDENT/ TEACHER INTERVIEWS                                                                                                          Our next set of student-parent-teacher conferences are quickly approaching.  The dates are Tuedady, March 26 and Thursday, March 28.  The interviews will be running from 4:00-7:00 pm without a break.  This also means that the hours of the BookFair will reflect those of the interviews.  We want to make sure you are aware of the interview date and will be able to find a time that works for you.  Parents of Elementary students who require an interview will be contacted to set up an interview time.  If you don't get a call and would like an interview, please contact the school office at 306-823-4313, to set up a time to meet.  Parents of grade 6-12 students are asked to follow the same format as the fall interviews and meet with the teachers as they become available during the interview sessions.  We look forward to meeting with you.                                                                                                                                  Note:  Mrs. Knorr-Bingham will only be available for interviews on Tuesday, March 26.


In an attempt to control the huge amount of items in our lost and found, we have washed and hung up shirts, jackets and sweaters on a rack so the students can hopefully pick out any that belong to them. They will be on display for parent teacher interviews. If they aren't claimed in a week or so, they will be sent to the Interval Store or some other charity. 



The Milk Prize Program started on Jan. 31.  Students will get a scratch ticket when they purchase milk or get one from their milk card.  Some of the tickets will have a large letter on them from A-F.  They bring that winning ticket to the office to claim their prize.  The prizes include: free milk, tubers, backpacks, lunch bags, pop ups and lanyards for a total of 63 prizes.  Quite a few students have won prizes already!
