What a vibrant school we have! Soccer games, volleyball games, lego robotics club, all Tuesday after school. Thank you to the staff and parents for all of your support with these programs we offer our children at the school. On Sunday evening over 30 children took part in the first youth group (ages 12-18) meeting of the year. What a great way to end the weekend - 5pm Mass, followed by a “Youth Gathering” at 6:15pm (to 8pm) in Youth Hall, located behind the Monastery.
At this time of the year we see more rain and less daylight. Please remember to drive with care; the safety of all those in our community is our primary concern. I would like to remind you that pick up is allowed only on the west side of the parish centre. Please remind your child to wait in the designated pick-up areas.
School Mass - Thursday, October 26: Class 3A will be serving and all are welcome.
Photo Day - Thursday, October 26: Individual student photos will be taken on Thursday, October 26. You will be able to purchase photos online from Lifetouch Photography. If you have any questions you may contact them at 1-866-457-8212.

These conferences are are intended to provide you with a brief update on your child's progress mid way through the first term.

If you feel that more time is needed to discuss your child's progress, please make arrangements with the teacher to meet at a later date.

IMPORTANT DATE CHANGE: NEW DATE IS FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2017:
As you know, changing a date for an event so close, is an enormous challenge and the committee is working hard to make adjustments to create a special evening that follows in the tradition of Dinner Dance Auction events in the past.
A huge thanks to all those who have signed up so far to volunteer. Shifts will now be one day earlier. It may take time to do the date changes online so please confirm that you are able to volunteer shifts on the
new date and those who remain registered online next week will be considered confirmed for the new date. Please remember that it is mandatory for all families to either volunteer or donate to DDA.
Tickets will be on sale very soon and you are encouraged to purchase early to avoid disappointment. Seating is LIMITED and we expect to sell out!
