Fire Victims Fundraiser 
Thank you to the Middle School students in the Community Service classes, Mrs. LaCrosse, the volunteer parents, and the Village Hub for hosting a fundraising breakfast that raised over $1,000 for the North Bay fire victims!  

Recess/Lunch Activities
Please take a moment to take a look at the various activities that are available to both the Middle and Elementary students during morning and lunch recess.  Sometimes it can be hard to spend your free time productively.  Our goal is to offer a wide array of activities for kids to participate in, and it is good to know that they have options to put themselves in the most productive environment possible.  Please refer to the Recess and Lunch Activities Schedule
