What Is Advent Season? A Closer Look at the Christian Tradition

As you light your candle(s) for each week of Advent invite all who gather to share in this prayer:
God, Send your light into our hearts and fill us with joy,
as we prepare for the birth of your Son.
Transform our lives into images of Jesus
so that your light will shine through us.
Lord, fill the world with your peace, hope and love this Advent.

“A single act of love makes the soul return to life.” ~St. Maximilian Kolbe

Lunchbox Orders | School Resource Directory

LunchBox Lunches: We hope you are enjoying the new lunch program. As we don’t have access to the student database, if you wish to cancel an order due to your child being away for any reason, including a class closure, please contact LunchBox at least 48hours in advance. For inclement snow days, the lunches will be canceled automatically, and you will receive a credit. For milk, your child will receive the missed milk the next school day.

COVID-19 Safety Measures: For the safety and well-being of all students and staff, parents and guardians must perform daily screening of their child(ren) for COVID-19 symptoms BEFORE leaving for school using the COVID-19 Self-Assessment.

The Government of Ontario daily self-screening tool can be accessed here:
