June 17-21, 2019

Dear Parents,

We will be having a “Fun-Day” tomorrow (Monday, June 17th). Students in our Fine Arts and Recreation and Leadership Academies are preparing stations for the students to participate in. The activities will be held outside (weather permitting). Please ensure your child is dressed for the weather. Lunch will be provided for the students free of charge. Students will receive a hamburger, fries, drink and ice cream. There will be dairy free options and non-gluten options for students with allergies. Please contact the office if you require additional information.

Grade 5-8 Parents:

The students in grades 5-8 are attending a Pow Wow at Enoch Cree Nation for National Indigenous Peoples Day on Friday, June 21. Students will leave the school at 8:20am and return by approx. 2:15pm. Students are asked to bring a bag lunch that day. There will be Elders to talk with, Cree, Metis, and Inuit histories and traditions to learn about, face painting, traditional games, hoop dancer demonstrations, and the actual pow wow dance competition. This should be a fantastic opportunity for our students.

God Bless,

Peter Rachmistruk

Faith Corner

Today, we give thanks and send blessings to all the fathers.

God our Father, in your wisdom and love you made all things. Bless these men, that they may be strengthened as Christian fathers. Let the example of their faith and love shine forth. Grant that we, their sons and daughters, may honor them always with a spirit of profound respect. Grant this through Christ Our Lord. Amen. (
