This week at MidSun

We have had a great week at MidSun!

Volleyball tryouts have started and many students are anxiously awaiting the posting of the team lists.  If students are unsuccessful in making our volleyball team they are welcome to join our cross country running team.  See Mr. Harris for more info.

As you can see from the picture above, many students came out to apply for our LINKages program. This is a great opportunity for our students to reach out to the community and become friends with a senior.  The students travel twice a month to the McKenzie Care Centre and visit with one of the residence.  Application forms need to be handed into Ms. Amirault.

We had a great turn out for our "Meat the Teacher" BBQ.  Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the event by bringing your bottles for our reverse bottle drive in support of student activities. The evening was a beautiful one and it was great to meet with friends and neighbours.  Parents had the chance to attend a grade 7 band parent meeting and a grade 8 riverwatch meeting as well as meet their child's teachers.  Our School Council chair spoke and encouraged parents to come out to our meetings.  We usually have less than ten parents and we would like a greater number of experiences and opinions to help us improve our school.  Please consider attending the next council meeting on Thursday Sept 20th at 7 pm in the Library Commons.

We hope you have a great weekend and don't forget that Monday is PICTURE DAY! bring your smiles and comb your hair!
