Outstanding Warriors

This months recipients are Alexandra Kay and Xeath Nault.  We would like to encourage nominations from all sectors of our school and community.  Many students often achieve great things in our community that we do not acknowledge here at school.  Others brighten the days of students who need help in their school day.  Through Outstanding Warriors we would like to spotlight these acts.  Nomination forms are available at the office.

School Photos
