Our school is super proud of our Robotics team - 2200. They did very well at the World's Competition in Detroit, ending up 3rd out of 70 teams. They had the largest team and the most successful season in team history. The members of this team are an impressive group of individuals who work so well together and represent our school in such a positive way - through both their talent and humility!

Grad Breakfast

The Grade 12 Breakfast on May 1 was a wonderful celebration of the Class of 2019!  Students enjoyed a hot breakfast and received important information about prom, commencement, and next steps for all post-secondary pathways.  

Valedictorian candidates were voted upon at the conclusion of the breakfast.  Congratulations to Liam Doyle and Will Klingler who will serve as co-Valedictorians at this year’s June 6 Commencement.
