Pink Shirt Day

In 2007, a grade 9 student in Cambridge, Nova Scotia, was bullied by classmates for wearing a pink shirt to school. Taking notice, two Grade 12 students named Travis Price and David Shepherd rallied their friends to send a message to the bullies. The next day the halls were filled with students in pink t-shirts. This was the beginning of Pink Day.

Progress Reports

Progress Reports

Reporting to parents occurs regularly throughout the school year through the use of Parent Portal. This continuous communication provides Grade 1 - 8 students and parents with feedback that is clear, specific, meaningful and timely to support improved learning and achievement.

Progress Reports are issued twice a year to parents/caregivers of Kindergarten through Grade 8 students. In 2018, Reports will be issued on February 2nd and June 28th.
