During Spirit Week, specifically Thurs March 12, 1:30-3:15, junior high students will be having an afternoon at the Sportsplex! From 1:30-2:30 there will be a Students vs. Staff Hockey game and immediately following that will be a free skate for Junior High Students. We will dismiss the Junior Highs from the Sportsplex.
Junior High students will be expected to skate as part of their phys-ed curriculum. Please e-mail Mr. Fisher if you have a spare pair of skates that might be able to be loaned to a student.
On Friday, March 6, parents and community members are invited to attend a brief meeting at the school regarding the safety of our school parking lots. There has always been some concerns around parking lot safety, and now the weather has created a new set of challenges. There may be some changes coming to how we use our parking spaces, and we’d like to have input from as many people as possible. Please join us at 9:00am, in the Bear’s Den, if you’re interested in exploring some solutions to this problem.
SchoolsPlus will be holding a recreation and sports fair at Bicentennial School on April 13th at 6:00pm . The fair is to provide information to families on different recreation programs, summer camps, and accessible programs as well as sports camps opportunities in their community.
This will be a valuable tool for our schools and communities to increase physical activities with-in our children and youth. There will be information available from numerous community organizations, and accessibility options such as Jumpstart and KidSport. The fair will be organized with a tables for organizations and located in the gym. This will be available to all students and families, as well as other community members.
We will be contacting any and all regional specific organizations as well as organizations that serve HRM as a whole. If you have any requests for certain organizations to attend or questions please contact Dustin Ellsworth at email@example.com

Please read the following message from the Halifax Regional School Board
February 17, 2015
All HRSB schools will be open on Wednesday, February 18. Buses will be operating although drivers will be using their discretion on side roads. In anticipation of opening, the board recognizes that weather conditions are not expected to improve significantly in the next few days. As a result, many streets, sidewalks and school grounds will remain ice-covered despite our best efforts to clear, salt and sand. We are asking for the public’s cooperation to protect the safety of our students and staff as we resume operations. Our schools are going to be as vigilant as possible in the supervision of students, especially at arrival and dismissal times. We have advised that students should remain inside for recess and lunch until conditions improve. We understand and appreciate that many parents will drive their children to school in these conditions. Parents should anticipate that school driveways and parking lots will be smaller and narrower than usual. Typical drop off procedures for students could be impacted. Please allow extra time if you are transporting your child to school and know that you may need to park off site and walk your child to the school doors as unnecessary vehicles may be restricted from entering school property. We ask that anyone driving on streets around schools do so with caution as snow banks near driveway entrances and exits may pose line-of-sight challenges. We appreciate the public’s support. Our Operations staff, including school caretakers and custodians, have been working tirelessly over the last few days to make areas around schools as safe as possible.
Parents, students, and community members are in for a real treat! It’s time for our Jr. High Band Concert and it’s going to be a great show. You will be treated to performances by: the grade 7, 8, & 9 bands; our jr. high choir; student dancers; and a special performance by Joel Plaskett!
Donations will be accepted at the door, with proceeds going to offset the cost of the grade 9 band trip to PEI. We will also be drawing the winning ticket for the Shopping Trip to Main.
