Cakes: Jean Prevost our fabulous teacher in the Learning Commons is retiring. Mrs. Prevost's last day at ROMS will be Tuesday, January 31st and we would like to make her day special. We are hoping that all classes would drop in to the Learning Commons throughout the day and wish her well.

We have approximately 641 students and 70 staff. In order to ensure that we have enough cake for everyone to enjoy, we thought that we would ask each division to please provide a cake large enough for 30 students to share. All cakes must be peanut free!

Divisions not yet represented are:

M-1, M2, M3, M5, 7-1, 7-2, 7-4, 8-1, 8-3, 8-4, 8-5 and 8-8

If you are able to provide a cake for your child's division to share in the celebration on Tuesday, January 31 please email Ms. Hunter at mailto:chunter@sd63.bc.ca . Please provide your child's name and division in the email.

Thank you.
