Used battery collection at Lord Tennyson:
You can now deposit any used batteries from your home in the small brown bin in front of the office and the Zero Waste team will recycle them. This is an ongoing program offered to Tennyson families to keep batteries out of the landfill. Thank you to Dreama Lee and Tai Scott - our Zero Waste heroes!
Thank you to everyone who donated old cell phones, pagers, etc. We collected 28 cell phones for the Recycle My Cell Challenge and will now receive $1 for every phone recycled and qualify for a prize of $500. The prize will be awarded in February.
In addition to the phones, many chargers, batteries, etc. were donated and will be recycled as well. All of your efforts will ensure these items stay out of the landfill.
Thanks again for everyone who helped out in this effort.
This is the fist of a 5 part series looking at concussions at the high school level:

A huge thank you to everyone who made the Kickstart fundraising campaign so successful. The final count is now in. With your help, we have raised an amazing, terrific, whopping, great, fabulous, stupendous $16,630. This will go a long way to help support programs at the school and enrich the experience for all of our children. Merci beaucoup. (You will receive your charitable donation tax receipts in the new year.)

The Cross Country Team finished off the season with a celebratory pizza lunch in the gym on Tuesday this week.
What a great season! Thanks to all of the runners and parent volunteers and a HUGE thanks to Coach Chris, Coach Karoly, Coach Ed, and Coach Jacqueline.
The Gr 6 girls volleyball team had a great set of games at Shaughnessy Elementary this afternoon. Tennyson Team 1 won all of their games and Tennyson Team 2 won all but one of their games (they were only beat by Tennyson Team 1!). Thank you to Coach Goran (Maria's dad) for all of his work with the girls.
