It is that time of year and Graduation 2015 is almost upon us. We are in need of parent and student volunteers to assist with Graduation duties. Many hands make light work and we want this night to be perfect for our graduates. We want to continue the pay it forward tradition of parents and non-grads assisting with graduation duties to ensure that the graduates and their families have a formal night to enjoy and remember as a milestone.
Thank you in advance. We look forward to celebrating this special evening.

Our goal is to ensure we continue our work supporting the foundations for a healthy school.
The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Prince Edward County detachment, in partnership with Prince Edward Collegiate Institute will be hosting a presentation. The “Am I In Trouble?” presentation discusses difficult situations youth may have experienced or witnessed. The presentation will be delivered by teens for teens, supported by many community services.

The intention is to help teens better understand the risks and consequences of challenging societal topics such as Bullying, Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Self/Peer Exploitation “Sexting” and to ensure they understand the variety of community supports available to them for assistance.
Research shows that parent engagement is critical to student engagement and ultimately student success.

Resilience: 27th Annual Secondary Art Show
LOCATION: John M. Parrott Art Gallery, 3rd floor, Belleville Public Library, 254 Pinnacle Street, Belleville
DATE: April 2 – 29, 2015
This event continues to be a spectacular way to showcase the creativity and personal expression of Visual Arts students to the community. Under the guidance and expertise of Art teachers, students have learned to explore and apply a variety of media, materials, technologies, tools and techniques using the application of elements and principles of design.
Additional learning has been to prepare the art works for presentation to a broad community audience and to understand the effect of the Arts in everyday lives. These pieces demonstrate student learning of Ontario curriculum requirements.
Works/techniques on exhibit include the following:
Drawing: pencil, pencil crayon and ink
Printmaking: dry point prints, mono-prints, collagraphs and colour reduction lino block prints
Acrylic painting and mixed media
Eight pieces from each secondary school will be on display.
Thank you to gallery Curator Susan Holland for assistance in coordinating this exhibit.
