Catholic Education Week 2019:

We will celebrate Catholic Education Week from Monday, May 6th – Friday, May 10th. This year’s theme is Living as Joyful Disciples. You have been invited to visit your child’s classroom/the school for an activity or to observe a lesson.  Communication was sent home a couple weeks ago with specific details. In case you missed it, please click here. We look forward to seeing you as we celebrate Catholic education and the great things happening at our school!

By-Laws & Parking at the School:

A reminder that parking at the school before and after school should be limited to the parking lot (parked in a spot), the church or on Monk’s Passage. We have many students walking into these areas and we want to limit traffic for their safety. Also, we have noticed Town By-Law officers around inspecting drop-offs on the road and illegal parking at the school. Please plan ahead at pick-up/drop-off to avoid a potential fine, but more importantly to ensure student safety. Thank you for your on-going cooperation.

Save the Date! We will be having our school community BBQ on Thursday, June 6th. Please save the date…more information coming soon!

Your Partners,

A. Gojmerac and V. Chininea
