Safe Grad Committee

Plans for the 2014 Safe Grad are well under way. The Safe Grad Committee needs your help in order to make this event a success.  Planning for the Safe Grad is an opportunity for the parents of graduating students to give their children a safe environment to celebrate with friends and classmates during the night following the prom. Parents can help by volunteering for one of the four subcommittees (Fundraising, Food and Beverage, Entertainment and Decorating). Parents are also welcome to make a donation of food or entertainment items; donate a gift card or gift for the Safe Grad; make a financial contribution or support our fund raisers activities.
You can continue to bring your recyclables to a recycling depot and quote the Booth Memorial Safe Grad Account Number 1030272.
The 50/50 Draw date was March 17th.

Congratulations to the 50/50 Draw Winner: Emily Pickett
If you can help out on one of these subcommittees, please contact the school and they will pass along your name and contact information. We look forward to any assistance you can provide to the Safe Grad Committee and more importantly, to a very successful 2014 Safe Grad.  
We will be in contact with further information on fundraising events for Safe Grad.

Easter 2015 .. Trip to Iceland Being Planned

Plans are underway for an exciting trip to Iceland during the 2015 Easter break.  Students participating in the ‘Iceland; Glaciers and Geysers’ will spend 6 days visiting some of the most spectacular sites on the globe!

While on this adventure, students will see icecaps, glaciers, spouting geysers, steaming solfataras, volcanoes, raging rivers and magnificent waterfalls.   They will have bragging rights because they stood in both Europe and North America at the same time, not to mention swimming in the Blue Lagoon!   We will also experience the vibrant European culture in lively Reykjavik as well as at every stop on our tour around the Golden Circle.   This trip is jammed packed with activities that will keep students busy creating memories that will truly last a lifetime!

If you are interested in finding out more, please email or see Mr. Jesperson for additional details.

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.

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 or at 579 6465.

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