Are you a grade 11 or 12 student in need of community service hours in order to graduate?  If so, be sure to come out to portable 13 at any point today and sign up for an after school event this Wednesday, March 23rd, in order to earn some community service hours.   We will be sorting clothing after school on Wednesday and many hands make light work! Come out and join us, while doing good work for your community, and earn those hours that you need. See Ms. Torto in portable 13 today! 

If any Senior Badminton players need a cab to St. Johns today, please let Mr. Dyjack know by the end of period 1.

Thank you to those who came out to the first girl's soccer tryout last night. A preliminary list will be posted by the Female Phys. Ed office sometime today.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Mrs. Ferraccioli, Ms. Cassano, Ms. Hynes or Mr. Martorelli. 

All those who gave your ticket to Mrs. Ratelband to see the preview show for NTS, come straight to the cafeteria for attendance, immediately following the announcements on Thursday, March 23rd.  Teachers check your email for the list of actors, crew and directors who are involved in the show and will be missing period 1 class. A reminder that this is still a work in progress, so we ask that you look on with a gentle eye.

There will be a second Senior Boys Soccer tryout this Thursday from 4:30pm to 6pm. If you can not make the tryout make sure to let Mr. Dyjack know. Junior soccer tryouts will begin next week. Make sure to listen for an announcement early next week.

Attention Class of 2023!  Every year the Stedman Foundation Bursary helps a number of students in Brantford and Brant County pay for their post secondary education. A bursary looks at a student’s level of financial need and their academic success. Typically, bursaries do not require marks as high as those needed to win scholarships. For more information see your Grad D2L Page.
