Dear Parents,

We will be hosting our Open House on Thursday, March 14th at 6:00pm. Please help spread the word about our amazing school. I have attached a poster and it would much appreciated if parents could post this information on their social media platforms:

We will be having our second Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences on March 19th and 20th. This is an excellent opportunity to discuss successes and address areas for improvement. An email will be sent out tomorrow with booking information.

The Lenten season, with its importance on prayer, fasting and almsgiving, is upon us. As a school community we celebrated Ash Wednesday mass at OLPH and had a very successful “Faith Day” last Thursday. Students participated in faith based activities and were entertained by Face to Face Ministries in spiritual songs and reflection throughout the day.

God bless,

Mr. Rachmistruk

  • March 11th is “Break the Rules Day” for Valeda House. Each rule a student breaks, they need to pay $1.00. All donations will be going to Valeda house. Classroom teachers will be discussing some ideas of what “breaking the rules” will mean in their classroom. Valeda House provides temporary shelter for homeless women who face exceptional challenges in finding safe housing.

  • With the warm weather finally arriving our playground is going to get wet and slushy. Please have your child bring a change of clothes to school just in case they get wet. Thank you!

  • Holy Redeemer will be hosting Mental Health and Wellness day on March 20. We will be participating in a day’s worth of activities that increase awareness and provide opportunities to practice new skills focused around mental health. This year’s theme is "Sea's the Day". Students can wear PJ's, comfy clothing or dress tropical (beach theme)! We will have lunch together in the gym listening to the waves of the ocean, students should bring a beach towel to sit on. We welcome parents joining us for the day to participate alongside their children. Please note that this will be a no technology day. We encourage students to leave all their devices at home (or in their locker) for the day.
