Week of March 13, 2016: Welcome Back!
Welcome Back! Let's SPRING into School!
Join us for "Meetings with Michael"
Mr. Turner would like to extend an invitation to our families to join him for conversation and an exchange of ideas and insights on the topic of Health and Wellness.
"Meetings with Michael" will be held on March 17 and these meetings will take place at:
  • 7:20 a.m. (Lower School Campus, Dundas Hatcher Hall)
    -- Note: free "Open Gym" child care will be provided before school for St M students
  • 2 p.m. (Singleton Middle School Campus, Great Hall).
Nutritionist Donna Wheeler from ACAC will be a guest speaker at these events. As well, Mr. Turner will share an update on explorations to make our lunch program healthier.
Lastly, be on the lookout for a survey that will be sent to our families after Spring Break to gather input and ideas for our school lunch program.
We hope you will join us!
