Welcome to Virden Collegiate Institute

“Modeling respect, learning and responsibility to motivate students to become productive, caring citizens.”

Keown’s Korner!

Hello VCI community!  Pretty scary how the year has flew by as quickly as it has??  It is however an exciting time, with our Grads putting the final touches on their High School Career, the planning that is going on in getting ready for the 2015 – 2016 school year, the retirement announcements for those moving on to new challenges, and the anticipation of a great summer ahead.  On that note everyone at VCI would like to wish all the best to Bob Chalmers and Judy Mytopher, two solid staff members who have announced their plan to retire from the Fort La Bosse staff at the end of this year.  I would personally like to thank both for their support and words of advice over my years in FLB – much appreciated!

Let’s make sure everyone gets all of their assignments, projects, labs done by the due date of Friday, June 12th.  As well, let’s make sure we are putting some time into preparing for those final exams which are coming soon.

Grads – not far now – finish strong!!  Reminder:  Grad starts at 10:00 this year at the T.O.G. Place, with our Cap and Gown Picture at 9:00 in the hall.

Thanks again to everyone for their support, and I wish you all a great close to this school year and a safe, relaxing summer.

Take Care

Mr. Keown
