We celebrated our 100th day of the year on Thursday, February 22nd. Thank you for your generous donations for the “Connect for Community” program. We have collected SEVERAL boxes of a variety of hygiene items that cost approximately $1.00. Our students have enjoyed participating in many activities surrounding the number 100. Enjoy some pictures of the activities taking place throughout the building. Look closely and you will see students dressed as if they were 100!
Congratulations to Liam! For Liam’s recent birthday, he told his friends and family that he did not want any gifts. From the monetary gifts he did receive for his birthday, Liam donated this money to the Vernon Animal Shelter!
