You are looking amazing in your yellow today!! Today we are operating on a special modified timetable so that you may attend all of your regular classes before our full school walk and flash mob this afternoon. Your teacher will share the details of this timetable with you this morning. At the end of period 4 there will be a call down for the walk. You may quickly take your books and backpacks to your locker and then all students and staff are asked to meet by the tennis courts to form our parade. There will be a police escort, as well as a few other special vehicles at both the starting and ending points of our parade- it is very important that we all stay together please remember hawks,
that we are representing our school to the entire community today- people will be watching from the streets and the media will be covering our event- let’s show them the true spirit of our golden hawk family. Please be respectful and kind, as always. If you are participating in the flash mob please be sure to situate yourself near the front of the group, or make your way to the front when we stop downtown. Finally, don’t forget that we will be collecting donations for the Canadian Cancer Society at lunch and on the walk… please consider donating to the very worthy cause that affects us all.
