Dear Parents,

 

Today is the CISVA Cross Country Meet at Swangard Stadium/Central Park in Burnaby. We do not yet know the final results but are proud of all of our children who have worked so hard the entire season. Thank you to all of the parents and staff who helped with driving, supervision and coaching. Thank you in particular to Mr. Jones, the head coach of the team, who has worked so hard to prepare the children. While the meets are always exciting, it is my hope that the students will continue to develop a love of running and will run for years to come.

On behalf of the staff at Sacred Heart I wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving.

 

God Bless,

 

Kelly Kozack

Principal


 

Dinner Dance Auction (DDA):   Don your most glamorous gown and dust off your tux for the 30th Anniversary of the Sacred Heart School Dinner Dance Auction on November 30, 2018. Our theme, “Champagne and Pearls” will be an elegant backdrop for the most anticipated event of the year. The purpose of this sophisticated event, aside from having an absolutely incredible evening out with your friends, is to raise funds for the Sacred Heart Community. This happens through the generous sponsorship and donations that we receive from local business and through your tax-deductible donations. Do you know anyone whom you can reach out to for donations to contribute to the silent or live auctions? Here is a list to get you thinking:

  • Canucks, Whitecaps, Lions tickets...or even better tickets in a corporate box!

  • Hotel stays (Vancouver, Whistler, Sun Peaks, Okanagan,...)

  • Vacation home usage (Palm Springs, Hawaii,...)

  • Restaurant experiences - tastings, private rooms

  • Photographer portrait sessions

  • BC Ferry passes

  • Birthday party packages - kids or adults!

  • Limousine services

  • Golf packages

  • Behind the scenes exclusive tours

Parents Night Out - October 13:  With the kids back in school, I’m sure you are in need of some well deserved downtime. Well, we have just the answer! Drop off your kids for a night of supervised fun, activities and a movie while you get to enjoy a meal that doesn’t involve cutting up someone’s food for them.   For details, please see the attachment below.



 

Taming Your Worry Dragons Course: We are running “Taming Your Worry Dragons” again starting next week. This will probably fill up quickly. Information can be found here on the website, and parents can register their kids by calling the office.

Liturgy of the Word with Children (LWC): For families with young children - Did you know that Sacred Heart Parish offers a special program for you during the Sunday morning Masses? In the Liturgy of the Word With Children, kids ages 4 and up are taken to a special area of the Church at the start of Mass.

They learn about the weekly Gospel readings in a simplified, age appropriate manner and are taught about the meaning of different elements of the Mass. Through songs, games and crafts, children are able to access the Word of the Lord in ways they can understand. Please take advantage of this program on Sunday mornings at both 9:00 and 11:00 masses. Children are called down by the Priest at the start of Mass, and return to their seats with you prior to Communion.

This program is run by a team of volunteer leaders. If you have a passion for teaching and sharing God’s message, we would love to have you join our team! We are always looking for new people to join this Ministry. You can commit to as few as 4 sessions a year, or as many as you like! Please contact Jennifer Kettlewell, LWC Coordinator, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like more information about joining the LWC team.
