Hug* your teachers (and counsellors, SETAs, principals) week.

 This time of year is all about the kids, of course– but kids remember to take a few minutes to thank the hard-working folks that helped to get you here!

 And maybe apologize for that thing you did back in grade 9.

 

 

*please read all policies and regulations before hugging anyone on or near SD46 property. All huggers will need huggees to sign waiver 638.94 prior to any actual hugs. SD46 will not be responsible for any injuries resulting from improper hugging technique.
