The food is to be brought on the Friday, between 11:30 AM and 11:55 AM. Warming up the food at school is not possible, so please bring it ready to serve. The meal starts at noon. The categories are: Grade 7, Chinese food; Grade 8, Mexican food; Grade 9, Italian food; Grade 10, Ukrainian food; Grade 11, appetizers; Grade 12, desserts; Grade 7-12 Filipino students, Filipino food. Please remember to avoid nuts in your meal preparations.  Food Bank donations have also started to come in. The class which brings in the most food items, eats first at the Mosaic Meal. The most needed food items include: peanut butter, canned meats, canned fish, all kinds of beans, powdered or canned milk, and canned vegetables and fruits.

In this reporting period report cards were sent home to grade 7 – 9 parents, but we will not be sending report cards out to 10 – 12 parents because they can access student results and attendance on-line at any time.  It was great to see so many parents, guardians, and students out for Student Led Conferences.
