Sweater Day!<p>​Mrs. MacInnis & our Eco Team are promoting National Sweater Day on Thursday, February 1, 2018.  National Sweater Day is an annual event organized by World Wildlife Fund Canada.  On National Sweater Day, WWF asks Canadians to turn down thermostats by two degrees Celsius at home, at school and at work to highlight the role that energy conservation plays in preventing climate change.  Our school buildings will be a little chillier on February 1, so students might like to bring or wear a cozy sweater or cardigan!  Thanks Mrs. MacInnish & Hillsdale Eco Team.<br></p>
