SAVE THE DATE! On Tuesday, November 1st, 2016, Jr. Kindergarten to Grade 3 students of Clear Water Academy will celebrate All Saints' Day in Harvey Hall Gymnasium. 

The students will get a chance to dress up as their favourite saint for this fun-filled annual event. Teachers will communicate with you directly about their organization for this event. We hope that all our parents get the opportunity to come and celebrate! Stay tuned for more information!
To make this event a success, we need approx. 30 parent volunteers to help with set-up, take-down, and to supervise various stations.

You are welcome to sign-up for more than one (1) shift if you are able to volunteer! If Questions? Please EMAIL  Tina Green.

We'd like to invite our Scouts, Guides, Cadets, and students in service organizations to be our flag party this year. We'd also like to invite parents/relatives in all service organizations to lay a wreath. Please EMAIL Mrs. Cathy Charlton-Brennan if you are able to help us with either of these requests.
