Please measure yourself and send your jacket size via email (or Remind) to Mr. Perry ASAP. We have to have the information compiled and sent in by the end of next week.
Spring in the Vimy area is similar to Toronto, so there is a good chance it will be a bit damp and cold. You should allow for room in your sizing for a sweater or a hoodie.
The trip is now officially sold out! 40 students and 6 chaperones are on their way to Europe!
There is a mandatory Fish Fray Fundraiser meeting in the library today at lunch.
Please make sure that you spread the word and remind your friends.
Just a reminder that the pepperette money is due back to the school by Monday January 11th. Please see Mrs. Cannon-Sherlock in the library, so she can properly record your profits.
Students are only to return the amount above and beyond what they already paid out to purchase the pepperettes.

Thank you to all the parents who came out this afternoon to learn about registering for the Vimy Trip. It is only 763 sleeps away!
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me via this link, that I will get back to you as soon as possible.
We expect that we will meet our maximum target of 40 students very soon, and as a result, will be starting a first come first served wait list. Details about the wait list will be presented once we sell out the trip.
Unfortunately, today's snow day means that the Parent meeting for tonight has to be postponed.
We will be moving it to Monday, March 2nd at 5pm in the Grey Highlands Library. Please make every effort to attend.

The Board has approved our trip! Woot! Woot!
The extensive planning by both Ms. Cannon-Sherlock and Mr. Perry has put us in a good position to "hit the ground running". Everything is set, and registration is set to begin. With the dollar dropping in value against both the American and European currencies, the travel company is not guaranteeing our price past the end of February. Once a student is registered, the price is locked in.
There will be a student meeting Tuesday, February 10th at lunch in the library, followed by a parent meeting on Wednesday, February 25th at 5pm ,also in the library.
