Congratulations to the FH Collins graduates for winning this year's Rendezvous Grad Challenge! The three secondary principals had a small wager on which school would win with the two losing principals wearing the winning school's gear for the day.
Here's Mr. Sikkes (who can be a bit of a sore loser) wearing the FH Collins gear while taking inventory of VCSS's impressive collection of championship banners (to which we added Boys Super Hoops last night - go Crusaders!)
We wish all Yukon Graduates of 2015 the very best as we head towards the end of the school year!
Course selection season is upon us! The school administration are meeting with all students entering grades 9 through 12 next year to distribute the course selection sheets and provide information about the graduation program.
There are three concepts that we hope all students and families can come to understand to make this process as productive and positive as possible:

VCSS is hosting an information meeting for parents/guardians and students who are going into Gr. 10 next year. Gr. 10 is when the Graduation Program starts and we wish to make everyone aware of graduation requirements.
The meeting will be at 7:00 p.m. in the VCSS Cafeteria on Tuesday, February 24.
UPDATE - 24-FEB: Click HERE for the presentation that will be shared this evening.
Tomorrow is Shrove Tuesday (aka Pancake Tuesday or Mardi Gras) which, in many Christian traditions, is a significant day as it marks the last day before the season of Lent begins. Because the 40 days of Lent that precede Easter are supposed to include fasting, we take this last Tuesday to have a party and eat good food!
To that end, I invite you all to our school’s Shrove Tuesday Pancake Breakfast starting at 7:30 am in the VCSS cafeteria tomorrow, February 17. Enjoy delicious pancakes, sausages, hot coffee or tea or juice for only $5 per plate or $20 per family with proceeds going to the organization Development and Peace.
We hope to see you there!
