A message from the Grade 9 Go Kart Groups:
“The Phoenix Flames and Wild Cats go-kart groups would like to invite you to participate in a cupcake walk fundraiser.
This fundraiser will be held at the TRE gym at 2:45pm on the 24th of April.
The entry fee of each round is $1 per person.
Each round will have one or two winners.
Those winners will get a set of 6 festively decorated cupcakes.
You can enter for as many rounds as you would like until all the cupcakes are gone!”
This fundraiser goes to support the team’s swag merchandise. Any funds raised above and beyond the cost of these items will be put towards purchasing thank you gifts for our supporters/mentors of our project.”

Mr. McGuire attended a Safer Schools Together training sessions in Dawson Creek this week. The presenters gave several websites and apps for teens, adults and families to check out together. Contained in the links below is a wealth of help, information and practical tools.
Mind Shift App for iOs and Android (Youth Focused)
Virtual Hope Box App (Older teens and Adult Focused)
A little known fact is that facebook, instagram, snapchat and twitter all have reporting tools that can be used to report bullying, harassment and other inappropriate public and private messages. These reporting tools are reviewed by the respective website owners.
For Students: Reporting bullying and harassment to a trusted adult at home or at school allows us to provide help and support as a community to those on both sides of the situation.
