The Junior High students will continue practicing hard this week to prepare for their events as they will be participating in the CARA Track and Field Meet on June 12 in Stettler.
June is only going to get busier with upcoming events such as: field trips, end of the year mass, the CTS Drama class’s presentation of their play Little Red Riding and the Hoods, provincial achievement tests, and the Grade 9 farewell ceremony on the last day of school.
