It was great to see all the children’s smiling faces back in our school yesterday morning! That is what makes coming to work each day so enjoyable! We are off to a great start to our year; there is a great positive energy in the building. Thank you for entrusting your child’s Catholic education to us. We look forward to working with you to help your child become the best person they can be. We will hold our Annual General Meeting with our Parish Education Committee and Meet the Teachers Night tomorrow beginning at 7:00pm in the gym. Top Marks Uniform Representatives will also be available from 6:00pm – 7:30pm the same evening. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow evening.
Reserved Parking Spots: Each year at our Dinner Dance Auction, one of our two major school fundraisers, we auction off two reserved parking spots in front of the school. These spots are clearly marked, and are reserved 24 hrs per day, 7 days per week. Please refrain from parking in these spots. Thank you for your cooperation.
