For those of you in Winnipeg right now - I'm glad we're having our "mild" temperatures now so you can have time to adjust! If you find you are having a hard time adjusting to the winter, please don't hesitate to reach out to our office - we love to give help and guidance for making sure students are dressed properly and how to cop with Winnipeg winters. :)
