Hi Heroes’ family!


Looks like we made it! We have a few weeks of school left but we are definitely on the homestretch. Thanks to every parent, student, teacher, support staff member, and volunteer for your positive contributions to our school life. It isn’t always easy to put in the time and effort but when I look at how far our students have come I know it’s worth it.


A special thank you to people (especially Gayle Bauer, Natalie Dudley, and Mary Ann Murphy) who worked at and attended the wrestling fundraiser. $3,000 was raised for our school!



***Please send your child prepared with raincoats and umbrellas on rainy days because we go outside for fresh air as much as possible.


***The breakfast program ends on Friday, June 2nd.


***If you are changing addresses please let Mrs. Murphy, our secretary know before July  5th so that she can organize transportation for your child(ren). 450.263.1612



PPO updates
June 10th- Heroes’ will be fundraising at the regional Track & Field meet at Massey-Vanier on June 10th. Come support your school. Hot dogs, drinks, freezies, and baked goods will be available. The proceeds will be going towards buying new gym equipment for Heroes’.
