This week we will be having parent/teacher/student conferences on Tuesday and Wednesday. We look forward to discussing your child’s accomplishments and address any areas for improvement. Thank you for your support as we all work together to ensure your child feels successful.
We are very excited to be hosting a Mental Health and Wellness day on Wednesday. Students will be participating in a day’s worth of activities that increase awareness and will have 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.
On behalf of the staff at Holy Redeemer we wish you and your families a safe and fun spring break!

Book Fair: Mrs Corbin is hosting a Scholastic book fair in the library. The book fair will be open in the mornings (from 8am to the end of first recess) for classes, or students with teacher permission, to come and preview and/or purchase books, and again after school during parent-teacher interviews (Tues & Wed. from 3:00-6:15pm).

In honour of St. Patrick, may we always put Christ first.
Christ be with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ when I arise, Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me, Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ is every ear that hears me.
