May 6 - 10, 2019
Posted on May 6th, 2019
This week we are celebrating Catholic Education week. This provides us an opportunity to publicly celebrate our mission, our successes, our students, and our future together in service of the Gospels. Thursday is World Catholic Education Day. We encourage everyone to wear blue on this day.
On Tuesday, May 7 our grade 8 farewell committee will be selling popcorn to our students for $2.00/bag. Please have your child bring a twoonie that day. The money raised will be used toward their farewell celebration on June 14.
Track and Field day (for grades 4-8) will be held on Tuesday, May 14. In order for this day to run smoothly, we are looking for 3 parent volunteers per class. A letter was sent home with students last week. Please let your child’s homeroom teacher know if you can assist. Thank you in advance for your help.

Prayer for Catholic Schools:
O Christ, our Teacher, We thank you for the gift of Catholic schools, where the message of your life, death, and resurrection is proclaimed, discipleship is modeled, worship of you is cultivated, and community is experienced.
Increase our zeal for ensuring that all children and families can benefit from an authentic Catholic education, and that Catholic schools grow in their ability to nurture the souls and form the minds of its students for generations to come.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
