Mark your calendars for Wednesday, February 23, 2011 when we hold our Fourth Annual Pink Shirt Anti-Bullying Day.
For 2011, schools across Canada will be participating in Pink Shirt Day and we anticipate adding more partners to make this the biggest anti-bullying awareness day in North America – if not the world!
Congratulations to MVHS students who did very well at last night's cute awards. Mr Savage's class picked up the award for best collaborative project and Mrs. Cabel's grade 10 class won the 21st century learning award for their to Kill a Mockingbird 50th anniversary commemorative video montage. Congratulations again to those students whose hard work was rewarded last night.
District 16 has released the list of finalists for the 4th Annual Creative Use of Technology in Education (CUTE) Awards. The names of the recipients of the awards in each of the 12 categories will be announced at a ceremony to be held at James M. Hill High School auditorium on Wednesday evening February 16th starting at 6:15 pm. Everyone is welcome to attend and there is no admission charge. The audience will have an opportunity before the presentation ceremony to see and hear some of the digital media created by District 16 students.
