Our November Bookfair was our most successful one so far. As a result of the great sales, we were able to obtain over $1300.00 in free books for our school library.  A huge Thank You to all students, staff, parents, guardians and grandparents for your generous support.

I would also like to thank a great team of volunteers: Samantha Dort, Mikayla Rudolph, Kaylyn Mailman, Emma MacDonald, Emily Hendsbee, Hannah Pearo , Makayla Fleet and Melodie MacLellan, your help was very much appreciated. Thanks as well to the students for transporting the books to and from the library
