At this time of good will, we would like to take this opportunity to say “THANK YOU”…

To the District maintenance, custodian, grounds, and bus drivers who are all working for the benefit of our students.

To the Lions Club of Salt Spring Island, Country Grocer & the Salt Spring Masons for our Breakfast program, and the for their generous donation to help supply our cupboards with food for hungry kids.
