Attention students: Do you want to hear Commander Chris Hadfield talk about his adventures in outer space? The evening will be memorable and classes will have amazing conversations with their peers and teachers, the day after! This exciting opportunity is taking place on Monday, November 17 at 7:30pm at Mile One stadium. We are giving students and their parents two ways of seeing this presentation.
Students can sign up at the office if they would like to purchase tickets and attend on their own. The cost is $25.70 per ticket for students and parents/guardians.
If we get sufficient numbers we will also offer students the opportunity to get bused to and from this event. Students would be picked up at school and then dropped off (back at school) after the presentation. Students will be supervised at all times. Students who choose this option will also fill out a permission form. This permission form is attached to our newsletter, found on our website, and can also be picked up at the office. The cost of this package is $30 per ticket.
Our bus routes have been updated; the only change has been to route 1. The new route information is available online here: Bus Routes (Updated Oct 2014)
