Dear Parents,

 

Along with the great things that are going on in our classrooms, the junior and senior soccer teams are scheduled to take part in the CISVA soccer finals tomorrow and Friday. On Tuesday we had over 180 children take part in the St. Bernadette Track and Field Meet at Bear Creek Park. As always, our children did a fantastic job representing our school community with their skill, and more importantly their sportsmanship. Thank you to the parents and staff members who support the students in their extracurricular activities.

After several months of preparation, children in our parish will be receiving the Sacrament of First Holy Communion this Saturday afternoon. Please keep them and their families in your prayers.

 

God Bless,

 

Kelly Kozack

Principal

Summer Watering Program:  Well, the sun has finally arrived and that means it's time to think about creating our summer watering 'crew'.  If you are interested in helping keep our beautiful school and church green while the kids are away then please consider joining the Summer Watering Team.  

We will need our crew in place by about mid/late May and then begin watering and weeding shortly thereafter until approx mid September (weather dependent). You'll be sharing your section with roughly 4 other families so everyone gets some hours (1.5 X hours) and you can work around any summer vacation plans.  Barry Marshall and I will coordinate an Orientation/Meet your Team night once our crew is in place.
