Shrove Tuesday Pancakes!

On Tuesday, February 28th our Catholic School Council and parent volunteers will be helping us to celebrate Shrove Tuesday with a pancake breakfast for our students!  We will also be holding our Mardi Gras raffle basket draws tomorrow afternoon. Thank you to all families for your generous donations to the raffle basket and ticket purchases.

Ash Wednesday Liturgy

Our grade 4/5 class will be leading the Ash Wednesday liturgy on Wednesday at 1:10 pm. All families are welcome to join us.

From Mary Mother of God Parish

Our Mary Mother of God Parish Youth Led Family Mass is held on the first Saturday of every month. We hope you can join us for the next one on Saturday March 4th, 2017 at 5pm. The youth band Ablaze will be playing, the song words will be on the screens, and there will be a wonderful welcome from the youth. Afterwards, Grade 9 to 12 students are invited to stay for the #Aftermass youth group. Food, fun and faith. Save the Date!

SEAC Soundbytes

The March edition of the SEAC Soundbytes is available here.

McDonald’s Update:

As a result of a recent statement made by McDonald’s Restaurant that all products on their menu may contain or come in contact with peanuts, tree nuts, or other allergens, we want to remind our community of our current Anaphylaxis protocol (click on for link) to peanuts and tree nuts.

As a school, we can never guarantee an allergen free environment but have strategies in place to provide a ‘minimized allergen environment’.  One way in which that occurs is reminding parents and students to avoid bringing products into the school that contain these ingredients (or may contain).  We are using this opportunity to ask parents and students to refrain from bringing these products into the school, whether they be food items from your home or those from a restaurant.
