Keown’s Korner!

Welcome back everyone to the 2014 – 2015 school year.  I hope everyone had a great summer and are revived to get back at it!  Hello Grad class 2015 – a big year ahead!!  To our Grad class 2018 welcome to Virden Collegiate, hope you have a positive start to the new setting.  A couple of little changes for the new year, everyone will be in a new homeroom and locker this year, as we move to having “Grade Level” homerooms. ( we will see how it goes?)  As well, we are looking to see how BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) unfolds.  Our wireless has been updated so hopefully we will all be connected!!  I do invite anyone to stop and see our new Chemistry Lab, which is very close to being finished, happy to say the contractors did a great job, and our teachers are excited to get in and get started!

Hope your first week has been a good one – students please click on the following link and remember to try and live up to this song??
