Don’t you know that you yourself are God’s temple and that God’s spirit dwells in your midst. ~ 1 Corintheans 3:16
Congratulations to our Grade Seven students who were confirmed on Saturday. Ask, and it will be given to you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened to you. We wish you satisfaction and fulfillment as God leads you to new opportunities in the years ahead; opportunities for growth, for learning, and for discovering His plan for your life.
Parking Lot Safety
The safety of our precious children is always our primary concern. Please continue to use caution and be vigilant in the school parking lots. All parents using the Kiss-and-Ride are reminded to use patience and not get out of your car. Please always wait your turn and pull up to the curb. Please do not pass another vehicle in the Kiss-and-Ride; please follow the traffic flow even if your children have disembarked. Students should never be running across the parking lot to enter vehicles. If you wish to walk your child you must park your car first!
