HALLOWEEN 2020
The pandemic did not stop our students and staff from having fun this year. So many great costumes and a haunted house (attended by cohort and in groups of 5) to end the day.
What's that show about the lions, or tigers, or crazy people?...
How fun and apropos Mr. K, well played.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY
The Columbian Centennial Housing Society is looking for help raking the properties at their four locations. If you’re looking for volunteer hours and can help out, please contact Mrs. Brodeur at irhs.ahc@cisnd.ca.

Raking would need to be done between November 12-30th
You’re ¼ of the way through your first year of high school. You have probably found some things are similar to elementary school and some things are different. One difference is the expectation for the appearance of your work has increased. Gone are the days of your quick notes on the back of an assignment sheet. Your assignments should be neatly handwritten on lined paper or typed and turned in. Grammar and spelling may not be important when texting with friends – but it matters on your homework. Take pride in your work and learn the habits to be a professional student. This is your job right now. Remember – your teacher teaches other grades and classes. Your name and class number (8A, 8B) should be on all work that you hand in.
A GREAT INTIATIVE BY ONE OF OUR GR 12s:
LEADERSHIP
Thursday the 5th of November is Mustang Day 2020 “Aren’t We Lucky” – GREEN AND GOLD DAY (Yay! GO MUSTANGS!)
The day will be full of engaging activities in which students will connect with their grade level peers and take a moment to reflect on the many ways in which we as individuals, family, groups, and community are blessed. 

There are 5 stations planned for the day and students will rotate through the activities. Each activity will offer an opportunity to embrace and foster gratitude. It is hoped that our Immaculata family will see the value in trading expectation for appreciation.

Activities include photo scavenger hunt, critical thinking, religious art, community and family connection, and gratitude reflection nature walk.

The long range forecast for the weather is for a dry but cool day. Please ensure that students arrive dressed appropriately for the nature walk and outdoor activities.  

Students MUST bring a lunch. There will be a small individual pre packaged snack provided on the day.

The day will finish with a closing prayer and a group photo with the school in the shape of a digital clock “60”. For this to work we need a drone and pilot to come to the school at 2:45 on Thursday 5th of November. WE ARE LOOKING FOR A DRONE AND PILOT TO TAKE A SCHOOL PHOTO. PLEASE CONTACT MR. WILSON IF YOU HAVE A LEAD ON A DRONE, TEL: 250-859-6718
