I hope you were able to spend some time outdoors enjoying the fantastic weather we experienced over the Spring Break. With First Holy Communion, Walkathon, Confirmation, Grade 7 Farewell, our spring play, spring sports, year-end music and dance recitals, the final three months of the school year are very busy and we are left wondering how we can manage it all. As a parent of two teenagers I can attest to how quickly it all flies by and we are left wondering where the time went. I encourage you to enjoy and appreciate each moment.
