Hail Mary, full of grace. Holy Mary, Mother of God
Our Lord is with you. Pray for us sinners,
Blessed are you among women, now and at the hour of our death.
And blessed is the fruit of your womb, Amen
School bell rings at 8:45, please have your children to school on time.
The expression “time flies when you’re having fun” certainly applies to the activities and events the HGS community has participated in over the past few months. As November is at our doorstep and Advent is right around the corner, I am amazed at how fast our first few months of school passed by.
It seems like yesterday that our Holy Ghost staff welcomed 260 students back to school. Resource was busy adjusting timetables and teachers were welcoming new students to their classes. The halls were bustling with excited and eager students ready to start their year. Student Council was elected and a huge congratulations to our new school leaders.
We had a chance to celebrate our first masses with our new Pastor Fr. Alfred Grzempa, and Fr. Daniel Janulewicz. The students found them very engaging and spiritually uplifting. We look forward to many more together.
Our Remembrance Day assembly was held on Monday, November 10, at 10:45 am. The staff and students put together a very nice ceremony to help us remember the many men and women who fought for our freedom.
November is report card month. The students will receive their report cards on November 21st. We will have our conferences with parents on November 27th in the afternoon and into the evening. In order to facilitate these conferences, there will be no classes for our students Thursday. Be sure to contact the school if you have any questions.
Please note that there is no school on November 28th, due to a professional development day.
With the arrival of winter, I would like to remind everyone that we have safety at the top of our priority list. Our parking lot is only for staff; therefore, we ask that you not park, pick-up or drop-off in this area. We ask that parents not park in the lane at the back of the school by the small walk-through gate, as this obstructs students view of oncoming traffic.
Yours in Catholic Education,
Principal: Ms. J. Siska
