Tour Update
by Jessica Tamburino - Tuesday, 31 August 2021, 9:49 AM

Due to an overwhelming response to Thursday’s New Student Tour, we are asking families coming from our three feeder schools to consider popping in anytime between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. on Thursday or Friday for an independent walk-through of the school.  You don’t need to RSVP for this option, but please sign in at the office. You are still welcome to join us at 3:30 on Thursday, but ideally, we would like to spread people out between the two days.  If you have any questions please call the office.  250-656-1129
