As we celebrate Mother’s Day today, let us remember that mothers are God’s gift to humans. Mary, the Mother of Jesus, had the sacred purpose of teaching and nurturing Jesus. As mother, she showered her wisdom, love and compassion into the guidance and education of her son. On this special day, may we thank God for the precious gift of our mothers who care for us, protect us, and love us. We pray that God will continually bless mothers, grandmothers and those entrusted with this care-giving role. May He grant them immeasurable joy.
A reminder that Track and Field day (for all grades 4-8 students) will be held on Tuesday, May 14. Students will be bussed to the Strathcona Athletic Park and will participate in various track and field events for the day. The buses will arrive at school at approx. 8:20 am and will bring the students back for dismissal at the end of the day. In order for this day to run smoothly, we are looking for 3 parent volunteers per class. A letter was sent home with students. Please let your child’s homeroom teacher know if you can assist. Thank you in advance for your help.

The month of May is dedicated to Our Blessed Mother, Mary. In our classes, we will focus on Mary and praying the rosary in our Chapel.
Mother Mary, I offer you all that I am, all that I have, all that I hope to be. Place me within your Immaculate heart and teach me how to honor and glorify God in all I do. Thank you, sweet Mother, for your example, love, and protection.
