Just a reminder to all parents/guardians, the school bell rings at 8:45, please have your children to school on time.
Dear Parents and Guardians,
We are have quickly approached another important season of the Church year. Alongside parents, who are the primary educators of their children in this area, our plans at school are to encourage prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
In preparation for Lent we had our Annual Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Breakfast, as we ate all the fats and sugars in preparation of the more austere season of Lent. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make this breakfast happen.
Our grade 4 – 8 classes did a fabulous job in our Annual Science Fair. Also, from kindergarten to grade 3, everyone worked so hard at producing such interesting projects. Great work! Thank you Mrs. Horsman for all the arrangements. Thank you to all the teachers and all our volunteer judges for your time and hard work.
Have a good month and remember that Parent Teacher Interviews are March 27th in the evening and March 28th in the morning.
Enjoy the spring break beginning March 31st and we will see you all on April 7th.

In Luke’s gospel we read “Be compassionate as God is compassionate.” We understand compassion not only as the ability to empathize with another but also to act on behalf of that other person. It is evident when we care deeply and want to help others, even if we do not know them. It is being kind and forgiving to someone who has hurt you.
We practice COMPASSION when we:
The more we talk, teach and learn about compassion, the closer our students come to dedicating themselves to the common good and to doing God’s work.
