Reminder – Angel Tree – Deadline Soon

Hello Families,

Thank you so much for all of your generosity! The Angel Tree looks AMAZING!

The Angel Tree helps to ensure that all of the families in our local neighbourhood experience the grace and generosity that the birth of our Lord brings at Christmas time. We are asking for new unopened toys, games, stuffed animals, gift cards, etc, to be brought to the angel tree outside of the office.

If you would like to donate, there are still some Angels left, and the items will not be picked up until December 6th. The presents do not need to be wrapped. Please see the attached form.

Many Blessings!

Grade 4 Families

Grade 4 Families,

 A quick note in regards to our Bible Celebration. Father has let us know that he will be celebrating Mass at Blessed Sacrament tomorrow morning so we will be starting our Celebration close to 9:45.

Please do not arrive to the John Sweeney Gymnasium prior to 930 as the Grade 4s will not yet be ready.

We are looking forward to having you join us for the special part of the student’s faith journey.

Cold And Wet Weather Preparation

It’s that time of year where the weather is unpredictable and often cold, wet and very rainy.  Due to this we are asking ALL students (students in grades JK through to grade 8) to please pack extra socks, pants and shirts into backpacks.   We would like to keep the phone calls out to parents to a minimum when it comes to coming into the school to give children a new set of clothes.  To be proactive, we are asking that all students please have extra clothing in their backpack at all times.  Thank you for your assistance with this; it’s greatly appreciated.
