Mountain Bike club will be riding this Thursday.  Meet at 3pm in the parking lot beside the greenhouse.  Remember to bring your helmet, water and permission forms.  New members are always welcome!

Interested in the arts? Like food? Come to SMAC! We organize workshops and art events. And we have snacks! We meet in room 182 every Thursday. See you there!

In  soccer action yesterday, the senior boys were the better team in the second half, out-scoring St. Mary's 2 to 1. Daniel Sargent and Tyler Boothby scored for the Griffins while Jordan Almond and Sam Twohey provided strong play on defense. The Junior boys battled hard with strong performances from Brody Saunders, Joe Voskamp and Carson Maguire. Next action for the seniors is tomorrow, when they travel to Campbellford.
Students who have abandoned art work in room 83 must pick their work up before the end of next week. This applies to last year's work as well. As much as Ms. Hosker enjoys looking at your art every day, she needs to use the counter top! Thank you with everlasting patience & warmest regards!

Fundraising for Terry Fox.  Each morning an annoying song will play throughout the school. If you would like the song to stop, come by the main office and drop off your spare change.  When the bucket reaches $200.00 the song will stop, if not the song will continue until October 15th.  If you are collecting from more than one person for the Terry Fox walk you will need a pledge sheet.  Pledge sheets are available from Ms. Smith in room 133.  Return all pledges to your homeroom teacher.

Are you between the ages of 15 and 17 and interested in studying and living in a foreign country for 11 months? Please come to guidance if you are interested and pick up an information sheet on the Rotary Club of Peterborough Exchange Program.

This free event will feature youth-led workshops, panels, art projects, and more. Plus, a free lunch. Let's work together to make Peterborough a more bikeable community for youth. Visit p-bac.org to learn more and to pre-register.

RPS starts today at lunch in the cafeteria for the grade 10's. Cost is $2 with proceeds going to the Terry Fox Run.

Ceramics Club is cancelled today. We'll be back next week.

October public transit passes are now available in the main office.  Please pick up your bus pass prior to morning class, during lunch or after school. Your bus pass is your responsibility.  If the pass is lost the school will not replace it.

Congratulations to the Junior Boys Hockey team who reeled off 3 consecutive wins yesterday at the St. Peter's Classic to win the championship. Goaltenders Drew Hutchison and Billy Leahy shared a 5 to 0 shutout in game 1 over IE Weldon. Leahy was rock solid, picking up a 3 to 2 overtime win over Norwood in game 2, while Hutchison earned game MVP honours in the championship game, a 3 to 1 victory over Haliburton. The Griffins combined good defensive play with potent offense at the other end. Jarod Mayhew, Charles Cowie and Braden Little led the attack with 2 goals and 1 assist each, while Connor Harnden was the most generous Griffin, picking up 4 helpers. If you check out the team picture, you can easily see why TAS also won the award for the team with the "best flow" in the tournament.
