Breakfast program announcement: A message from Mr. Bush. Breakfast program will be cancelled for the balance of February as there have been no volunteers showing up to assist our community volunteer Sandy. She has done it by herself the last two days and that is not right. If you would like to see the program back on in March, please sign up in the main office and SHOW UP when you are scheduled.

The deadline for students to apply for a Dalhousie entrance award is quickly approaching. Students must submit their application for admission, their entrance award application and any supporting documents before March 1 to be considered.
