School 12 hosted a Vendor Fair on November 18th.  Students from the Minds and Motion program showcased a dance, choir, step and Xylophone presentations throughout the day. There were also St. Joseph's Hospital tables with health and wellness information, Optical Academy that provided eye exams, Amanda Bananas ice cream truck along with other local vendors. We would like to thank the community for all their support and attendance to make this event such a success. Thank you! 
School 12 was visited by Ronald MacDonald. A show designed to teach kids about building good character.  The show reinforces that “what’s on the inside” – qualities of trustworthiness, respect, responsibility and fairness – is what really counts. Ronald McDonald uses interactive skits, magic tricks, music and lots of laughter to make this message memorable to students.
