Back to School BBQ success!
A HUGE thank you to Carol Sartor our PAC Chair for organizing such a great event.

Avril, Carmen, Cathy, Dave, Erik, Federico, Folkert, Helen, Jane, Janet, Ken, Leila, Lianne, Natasha, Nina, Rebecca, Scott, Steve & Yvonne.
Thank you to James and Leila for capturing images for the yearbook.
Finally, thank you to ALL families who attended and brought treats to make the event even more special.
We hope you had a great time and were able to connect with fellow Montroyal families.
