Dear Snuneymuxw Mustimuxw, Parents & Guardians,
Spring is here! It is nice to see longer days and a little peak of sunshine coming through.
As we look forward to the last couple months of school. It is important to remember that our last two months are filled with learning and everyone working hard to make it to their learning goals by the end of June 2018.
Congratulations goes out to 3 of our students who won the Crime Stoppers Poster Contest! The students who all won $100 dollars each from Crime Stoppers were:
As a school we received a contribution of $300.00 from Crime Stoppers to go towards our programming here at QQS. We are proud of all of our students who entered the poster contest! Way to go kids! Keep on reaching for the stars!
