What makes a family holiday special?  It is the traditions we look forward to each and every year.  Sometimes growing up we may have felt reading that special book as a family on Christmas Eve, or having that special meal (that no one really likes anymore) or going camping during summer holidays was not so fun or important.  Yet, when we become parents we are anxious to pass those very special traditions onto our children.  Schools also have traditions because they are important.  Children and parents may look forward to being in the 9 YO class because they create Rube Goldberg projects, middle schoolers can finally travel to tournaments, secondary students are able to go to the prom, and secondary IV students will have a special graduation.  All these school traditions are important.

This year we are hoping to begin a new tradition for middle school and secondary students who participate in sports and activities during the year.  We are hosting an Athletic and Activity Celebration on May 22.  Middle School and secondary students (and their parents) who participated in Cross Country, Student Council, Volleyball, MUN, Soccer, Math Club, Basketball, Speech and Debate, Track & Field and National Honor Society will be honored for their efforts. 
We hope this will become one of those special events that parents and students look forward to each year at QSIT.

Dear parents
We want to inform parents that we have confirmed case of Scarlet Fever (5 y.o.c)
Scarlet Fever is highly contagious  and should be treated with Antibiotics to reduce the risk of complications and the spread to others.
The symptoms of Scarlet fever include: sore throat, headache, fever, nausea, vomiting and "Strawberry tongue" This is followed by a fine red rash which typically first appears on the chest and stomach, rapidly spreading to other parts of the body.
If your child has been sick, please keep them off school for at least 48 hours after the last episode of sickness, even if they appear much better.
Many thanks for your co-operation.
