St Brigid Weekly Update – Week of February 3, 2020
St. Brigid Feast Day is February 1. We will recognize our patron’s saint day on Wednesday, February 5th with a liturgy.
The Gospel Value for the month of February is love. As we celebrate this Gospel value, we remember that God wants us to serve and to see goodness in everyone we meet. A loving person wants the best for others, is willing to make sacrifices for the good of others, knows that we are all loveable and prays for others.
In February we recognize Black History Month. Through a variety of activities, we will honour and pay tribute to Black Canadians, both past and present.
St. Brigid School is hosting its fifth annual Valentine’s Sock Drive in February. Please consider donating new socks of any style, size, or colour for boys, girls, women and men. Mrs. Rutherford’s class will be collecting donations at school starting Monday, February 3rd until Tuesday, February 18th. All donations will go to the Good Shepherd.
Our Eco Bears invite all students and staff to participate in National Sweater Day on February 6th! Dress warmly for school! We will help save energy by lowering the temperature at our school and bundling up in our favourite sweaters.
Winter Walk Day is recognized on February 7th! Keep active this winter! St. Brigid School will join schools across Canada to celebrate Winter Walk Day. Dressing warmly for a brisk winter walk can be exhilarating and fun – give it a try on February 6! Consider walking to school!
