Weekly Update – June 8th – 12th

We reflect on the past couple of weeks, witnessing the events taking place in the U.S., with sadness. This morning, we are hoping that we can all pause together and say a special prayer for unity, keeping in mind those who have been deeply affected by recent events, as well as those who encounter forms of racism and hate on a regular basis.

Eternal Father, we praise you for sending your Son to be one of us and to save us. Look upon your people with mercy, for we are divided in so many ways, and give us the Spirit of Jesus to make us one in love. We ask this gift, loving Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Please take a moment to read a message from our Director of Education, Mr. Pat Daly.


Parent Access to Student Belongings:
We will be sending information on the procedures for pick up of materials in the next week or so. Due to public health and board protocols to prevent social gatherings, we are looking at a “curbside” pick-up model, where you will have an opportunity to gather your children’s belongings.
2019-2020 Yearbooks – Open for Ordering!:
We would like to thank all families for their contributions to our yearbook! We have now accumulated enough photos, however, we kindly ask grade 8 parents to ensure pictures of graduating students continue to be submitted on their online learning platforms (Google Classroom).
