KEOWN’S KORNER
Happy Spring to our VCI Community!  It is hard to believe that it is spring already, but happy to see it!  Always an exciting time of the year as we look towards year end and Graduation, we are also planning for next year as well, seeing our new Grade 9 students come over for a visit always refreshes our thinking and gets excited about what’s to come.  I want to wish everyone a great break, and look forward to getting back at it as we close out the 2016 – 2017 school year.  Reminder to keep attending as much as possible – as it does have a positive impact on your academic standing.
Take Care
Mr. Keown
