International Day - April 13th 2-6pm at Beagle Middle School

We invite you to join us for International Day this year on April 13 from 2-6 at Beagle Middle School.  International Day is a day to celebrate our cultural diversity and to learn from each other!  There are many different ways to participate in this special day.  You may simply attend and enjoy watching performances, looking at displays or admiring clothing.  Or, you may wish to create a display, perform or be a part of the fashion show (please sign up using the provided forms).  Either choice is great and we would love to see you attend!

Lost and Found

Is your student missing that nice, new winter coat? Or perhaps that fancy Stanley Cup? Or even a single mitten? Check out our lost and found near the cafeteria. Most students walk by each day without even giving it a second look. Due to space constraints, lost and found items are cleaned out and donated every couple of months.
