Good Morning Nantyr! Today is Friday April 9. It’s been a long wait, but the March break is finally here. We would like to wish you a safe, happy and much deserved break. Take some time to connect with family and friends.
A message from the Canadian and World Studies Department:
Today marks the Anniversary of Vimy Ridge which was a Nation Building Moment for Canada. The 4 Canadian Divisions were able to capture Vimy Ridge from the German Army. There were over 10,200 Canadian casualties. The Vimy Ridge Memorial marks this famous battle and remembers the over 11, 000 Canadian First World soldiers killed in France with no known graves.
Today we are celebrating the International Day of Pink. This year we are celebrating a little differently. Discrimination takes many shapes, whether it’s based on race, age, disabilities, gender or
sexuality. The LGBTQIA+ community is no stranger to the bullying and violence that stems from hateful beliefs. While progress has been made towards removing these social barriers from our society, discrimination still persists. So, every year in April we ask Triton staff and students to wear a pink shirt to stand in solidarity against this. A special shout out to everyone wearing pink today.

Covid tip of the Day: Numbers are on the rise, so let’s all try to be a little more careful as we approach the Spring season. Be sure to have your mask covering both your nose and your mouth at all times when you are in the school, and any time you are outside when you can’t social distance. Let’s all do our part to keep each other safe.
And now the joke of the day:
What did the blanket say as it fell off the bed?
