Please make sure you have signed up for Remind so that you are made aware of bus cancellations and important upcoming events. Our November newsletter has information about the December Attack hockey game where our Hillcrest choir will sing O Canada. There is special pricing for tickets. We encourage you to purchase your tickets online through School Cash Online. It is very convenient and safe for you to pay for field trips and special events like this one.

Please keep an eye on the weather and dress your children appropriately. Gloves, mitts and hats are necessary for our frosty mornings.
