The Muskie girls' hockey team was a force to be reckoned with all season and they proved their talent once again last week at the OFSAA 'A/AA' championships in Timmins. After finishing atop Pool 'C' with a 3-0 record and then blanking Leaside 2-0 in quarter-final action last Thursday afternoon, the squad fell just short of their goal of a provincial title with a 3-0 loss to St. Anne's CSS in the semi-finals Friday morning.

Research shows that parent engagement in healthy schools is connected to better outcomes for students, and healthy children are better prepared to learn. The Northwestern Health Unit, in partnership with area school boards, is seeking feedback from parents of school-aged children across the region to gain a better understanding of the barriers to engagement, and discover new ways to increase parent-school connection in Northwestern Ontario.  If you would like to participate, you can complete an online survey, or join an online discussion panel or participate in a local focus group with other parents.  For more information, visit www.nwhu.on.ca
