Just a friendly reminder…. the office would appreciate it if when payment is due for Daycare, Pizza Lunch, Hot Lunch, Tuition, After School Programs, Fundraisers etc. that payment be made separately or if paid in cash that you endeavour to bring the correct amount. All of the above is maintained separately and it just makes things easier to process. Thank you.
A big Congratulations and Thank You to our D.E.P.S. students for performing at City Hall. Our students were outstanding! I would also like to extend a big thank you to our families for their constant support.
Until next time…
