Grand Prize!

 From June 4-8, 2018, one lucky class will go on an all-expenses-paid trip of a lifetime to Parks Canada places in Ontario. Our grand-prize winners will island hop through crystal blue waters at Thousand Islands National Park, learn the art of iron work at the Blacksmith’s Shop of the Rideau Canal, and enlist as a member of the Royal artillery at Fort Wellington National Historic Site, even learning how to fire a cannon! The class will also be guests at Laurier House National Historic Site, former home to two Canadian Prime Ministers, before exploring the nation’s capital and all that it has to offer!
