Last Friday, we had a Frontline Worker Day to support all the frontline workers in our community who put their lives at risk to provide us with the goods and services we need for a functioning society. Students dressed up as frontline workers, and many made signs to show their support. Thank you, frontline workers, for your strength, courage, and dedication; we could not do this without you. This day went hand in hand with the National Day of Observance to honour the lives lost to COVID-19 last Thursday.
During a typical year, this week would be March Break. Since our spring break has now been moved to April 12th, we decided to turn this week into a fun spirit week to keep morale up. Each day of the week has been a spirit day with a different theme. Monday was Movie and Music Day, where students wore clothes that showcased their favourite music, movie, or TV show. Next up was Twin Tuesday, then St. Patrick’s Day on Wednesday, Throwback Thursday, and finally, Semi-Formal Friday. Student Council has been counting each grade’s participation for the days; the grade with the best score by the end of the week will be the winner.
