Friday will be a short day with dismissal at 1:15 p.m.; we’ll follow the Afternoon Focus schedule. Please honour the College’s academic time and resist the urge to take your sons out of classes any earlier.

Thanksgiving can have different meanings to different folks but for many North Americans it has emerged as a holiday weekend when families take a pause and reflect on the things for which they are grateful. Canadians recognize Thanksgiving this weekend. In my family, we enjoy each other’s company over a turkey meal and show our gratitude for the life we enjoy. I hope that you’ll take some time this weekend to follow your own traditions whatever they may be and enjoy some downtime too.

Looking ahead to next weekend, the Norval open house events are always wonderful and gives community members and their families a chance to spend time at our outdoor school. Why not check it out?

Happy Thanksgiving!
