“We cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are.”

Wow!  At the half way point already, where does the time go?  As we head into second semester, I am hoping everyone is focused on working hard this second semester, as it will fly by as did the first.  Grads – you will be busy this second semester so make sure we are staying on top of the academic requirements, as we all want that final transcript to be a true indication of ability.

In our VCI sporting world, we are looking for to some positive results from our curling teams, with Zones and Provincials just around the corner.  As for Basketball, VCI is hosting 3 of the 4 provincial tournaments so a busy time ahead, but an exciting time.  Anyone wanting to help out just stop by and see Mr. Densmore.

We also look forward to “Staff Appreciation Week”, cause with out the hard work and professionalism of our VCI staff, VCI would be a different place. – THANKS!!!!!!!

As always any questions, concerns, or feedback please drop me an email or stop in!

Take Care

Mr. Keown
