Since this was the week before the Thanksgiving break, Mr. Knittle and the administration team, together with the Math and Science Departments, raffled three turkey baskets with all the goodies necessary for a scrumptious Thanksgiving Dinner.

Thank you to our Principal, Mr. Knittle, for his unwavering support in all our family night activities. Many thanks also go to Department Chairs Mr. Plancarte and Ms. Fretz, their respective department members, and Assistant Principals Ms. Jennings and Ms. Marshall, who worked so hard to plan all the activities everyone enjoyed so much. The evening went by very quickly and before you knew it, it was time to say good-bye until next year! Please enjoy the pictures in the gallery below.
