Hugh Thank You!! (Posted May 25)

The Booth Community came together over this past weekend to give our school a "Brave Farewell".  Thank you to the many volunteers for the tasks/jobs/performances/duties you performed.   A lot of time/commitment/resourcefulness went into making this weekend a tremendious success.  The pride expressed by alumni and current students for their school was fantastic.

Thank you!

Scent-Free Building: A Reminder

Reminder to the Booth Community that Booth Memorial High School is a "Scent-Free Building".  We have a number of students as well as staff who have sensitivities to scented products.   People with asthma and allergies to scented products can have reactions which affect their ability to breathe.  

Please restrict your use of scented products when coming to Booth.  Such products include body sprays and perfume/aftershave.

Recycling of Beverage Containers

An ongoing fund-raising activity for Booth Memorial is our beverage container recycling program.  Booth Memorial High School has three accounts set up with Evergreen Recycling.  You can drop off your items at any Evergreen depot noting the appropriate card number; you can decide which activity will benefit from your donation.

Thank you for your support.


Our Breakfast Program

Currently our students come to us from Beaconsfield and Holy Cross Junior High. These schools have identified a need for a breakfast program for their students. They operate a Breakfast Club in association with the Kids Eat Smart program. This program will restart on September 15th.

In the past year we have recognized the fact that the needs of these students do not disappear when they transition to High School. As a result we have now instituted our own Kids Eat Smart program.

We are providing a breakfast of toast, juice, fruit, etc each morning Monday to Friday. This is open to all students, not just to those who cannot afford it. The philosophy is that all students perform better in school if they eat properly.
Food for this project comes from donations and sponsorship. Any money or in -kind contributions are matched dollar for dollar by Kids Eat Smart. If you would like to make a contribution or if you have a contact in the corporate world who might help us out please contact kristavokey@nlesd.ca or at 579 6465.

A tax receipt can be provided for the value of any contributions.
