We have had a great turnout for our archery sessions. Just a reminder that the Grade 6-8 archers (the “Senior” shooters) meet at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday mornings. The Junior team, Grades 4 & 5, meet on Mondays after school (please listen to announcements and watch the school calendar as this time is likely to change). We would like to encourage our parents to sign up for REMIND so we can communicate any changes immediately. Also, please remember to send your t-shirt order (optional) in ASAP so we can go ahead with our team shirts. If you require an order form or information about the REMIND, please see the school webpage or ask your coach for the information sheet.

If enthusiasm and commitment alone could win games and bonspiels, our team would be undefeated this year! The short curling season will wrap up at the end of January with our final fun-spiel being hosted by St. Paul’s on January 30. The coaches would like to thank the dedicated players for coming out to practices and games even though many times the curlers had to choose between other commitments.

Approximately 50 boys and girls are currently participating in the M. C. Knoll Basketball Program. Our basketball players in Grades 6 to 8 have had a very successful season so far. The boys’ tournament will be February 13, 14 and 15. The girls will wrap up their season February 28, March 1 and 2.
In addition to being committed basketball players, our young hoopsters are also community advocates. The players have been creating awareness for our local SPCA in multiple ways. Good job!
At the conclusion of our basketball season, students in Grades 6 to 8 will have an opportunity to sign up for badminton. Shuttles will be flying around our gym later this month.
We are pleased to continue to offer a guitar club for grade 4 – 8 students after school on Thursdays. Students work within an inquiry framework which allows them to set and achieve their own goals. This means that no previous experience is required! Come and learn to play!
