Literacy workshops will take place again this week. The first session on Short Writing Tasks and Open Response will take place tomorrow at lunch in the Study Hall. The same topic will be reviewed for the rest of the week. All grade 10 students should check their email to see if they should attend based on their result of the practice literacy test. Please see Mr. Halk tomorrow if you have any concerns.

The Senior Girls volleyball team had a busy week, last week. On Thursday they went up against Jean Lajoie losing a hard fought battle with their games ending in scores of 25-19, 26-24 and 25-19. They then went up against our town rivals RCI and took them to 5 games, this time coming out on the winning side. They finished the day against the #1 ranked team; Fellowes. The girls lost the game after three great sets. On Friday the girls were at it again bright and early as we travelled to Brockville for a tournament. St. Joe’s beat every team in our division in at least one set coming, out of our pool in 2nd place. We headed to the semi finals where we took the first game but ended up losing the next two to Russell missing out on our shot in the finals. Miss Enright and Mr. Dobson are extremely proud of these girls and are very excited for playoffs! Practice tonight after school late.
