Information about our 5th Annual Celebrate our Catholic School/Open House will be sent home today, as well as the dinner order form. Over the years this has grown into an exciting community builder for our school. I hope you are able to come and celebrate all of the great things that go on at our Catholic school.

Hot Lunch Ordering Deadline Today: The deadline for ordering Hot Lunch is tonight at 9pm. This will be for January, February and March. No late orders will be accepted. Thank you.
Hot Lunch/Spirit Day - Wednesday, January 30: "Calm and Crazy" is the theme which will be represented in students clothing: one crazy (patterned, busy, plaid, prints, colourful) article of clothing, and the rest of the outfit should be calm (black or white if possible). The crazy clothes are "visual noise" distracting us from finding time for calm and quiet, shown through the "muted" clothes.
Life needs a balance of calm and crazy, or silence and noise. Class 5A will be leading family groups through an experience of listening for God's direction (among distracting noises). Since our theme is "What do you want of me, Lord?" it is important to know how to listen for the answer, and how hard it will be to hear God's call if we aren't listening carefully.
Missions Club Winter Food Drive: From January 21st to February 1st, we are having a Winter Food Drive. Missions Club students will be collecting non-perishable food items from classrooms each morning. All food donations will be delivered to our local bank. Just a gentle reminder to please check expiry dates before donating. Thank you for your generosity!
