Due to a mix up between us and Loon Lake camp, the Grade 8 retreat has been pushed up one week to January 24-26, 2018. This change is already reflected on the Point Grey Music Calendar. If you (or your Grade 8 music student) have already signed up for the retreat, you are still signed up and ready to go. If you are not signed up and would like to go, you can get a form from Mr. Fleming, Ms. Chen, or Mr. De Couto. Please contact any one of the music teachers if you have any concerns.
Yes, we are already planning for next school year! You can scroll through the calendar and see what has been scheduled so far. Some highlights below:
