Please come for a relaxation session today at first break in the gym. All students are welcome and all students will benefit. Come and relax and be calm and feel better!


Please bring any empty healthy snack bins down to the foyer. November wellness team members please come down at first break to refill the bins. They will be ready at the end of the break.


We would like to meet the entire cast of Mary Poppins today at 2nd break in the music room. This will be a brief information meeting to discuss details of rehearsals, music, script etc. Please bring paper and a pencil with you. Your attendance is very important.


Read and Relax (Gr. 6-8) & Calligraphy Club at second break in the library.


Congratulations to the girls’ volleyball team who won their semi-final game last night. Panther Nation will be cheering you on in the finals. Players of the game were Sophia V and Eleeza.


The senior boys’ volleyball team wrapped up a great season last night. You should be very proud of your improvement throughout the season. We will celebrate your accomplishments very soon, stay tuned for details.


There will be a brief but important meeting for library helpers today at first break. Any library helpers who wish to help with Book Fair are asked to attend.


Congratulations to the following students, whose names were randomly selected from all of the correct entries in the October HDSB e-wareness database contest - you have won a gift certificate to the Scholastic Book Fair: Stella G  (Mme  MacNeil’), Sohan B (Mr Colman), Ashley S (Mme Lee), Alton D(Mrs Kennedy), and Kyle R (Mrs Sharma).  Many thanks to all who entered!

Have you heard?  The Book Fair is coming!  

Next Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, the Scholastic Book Fair will return to the Orchard Park Library Learning Commons so you can check out many great new titles!  Books will be available to purchase for yourself or as gifts for others, and we encourage you to invite your families to check out the fair when they come in for your conference.

 Birthday Book club greetings go out to Hannah K in Ms Nicholson’s class and to Ivy K in Mrs Arnold’s class, who will be celebrating their birthdays today by donating a book to our library.  Thank you from your friends at Orchard Park for your generous donation!

 Wellness committee members: DO NOT FORGET about your presentations at the beginning of period 5 today immediately after attendance (unless otherwise changed). There is a chart outside Mme. Hunt’s office in case you have forgotten where to go.

 Relaxation Session today first half of first NB in the gym

 Our First snow… and we’re all excited!

Please take the time to talk in your classes about a Culture of Creation, not Destruction.  Ruining others’ creations is not cool!  It’s not cool to be unkind!

Let’s create lots of wonderful sculptures, forts and snow people!

All snow must remain on the ground.  

 A reminder to teachers to display the ‘all about me’ artwork for Monday AM!
