Dear Parents,

 

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.

 

God Bless,

Kelly Kozack

Principal

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!

As you know, the theme is Enchantment Under the Sea and in our efforts to transform the gymnasium into an underwater paradise, we are searching for a few items that we hope you might be able to lend to us (please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
