Last Saturday, November 3rd 2018, St. Thomas University had there fall open house. This open house had a lot to offer, such as tours run by current STU students, a Faculty Fair where they had representatives from each department on campus speak to you about the program, and even a free lunch in the STU cafeteria. If any grade 12's interested in applying to STU, there will be admissions on the spot on Thursday morning, but if your still not sure, STU will be holding another open house in the winter!
On Wednsday October, 31 James M. Hill was suprised that two minions were roaming about the school at lunch time. The minions were handing out rockets to our students and even scared a few of them, also they kept singing about their love for Ba ba ba bananas. Nobody really knows why the minions were at the school handing out treats for everyone, who knows maybe they were on a top secret mission from Gru and decided to stop by for a visit on their way home.
The Teens Against Distracted Driving club at James M. Hill surprised students with a treat on Halloween. The club bought Jolly Rancher suckers the week before and handed them out last period on Halloween day. The suckers accompanied a card that reminded students to always drive safe and to have a happy Halloween. The members of TADD spent many study blocks planning and preparing for this event and it was important for them to let students know they care and that Halloween was a night where you should always make sure you drive safe and carefully.
