The school bell rings at 8:45, please ensure students arrive on-time.
Welcome back to the new school year!
We hope that everyone has had an enjoyable summer break and it is with great anticipation that we look forward to an enjoyable and productive school year. As your school principal, I am extremely pleased to be here at Holy Ghost School and I am eager to work with all of you in our school community during the 2015 – 2016 school year.
We would like to particularly welcome our new families and wish everyone a very successful school year. In addition, we would like to welcome the following staff members to our Holy Ghost family: Mr. Workman – Grade 7/8 teacher, Mrs. Chabluk– Music/Librarian teacher, Miss Proulx—Grade 4 teacher, Mrs. Bognot – Educational Assistant, and Miss S is newly wed as Mrs. Pritchard, congratulations to her. The Holy Ghost Catholic School Community is a caring and supportive group of faith centered families. Your participation and partnership in your child’s Catholic education continues to be our strength. I again look forward to working closely with you in continuing to promote these goals in the new 2015 – 2016 school year.
We are asking your assistance in keeping the fire route clear of any parked vehicles in the front of our school. In the case of an emergency, as we had on Thursday, September 10, 2015, it is important that vehicles have clear access to our school during all times throughout the day. I would like to thank the families that exited the building immediately. When the alarm rings it is imperative that you leave the building. Our staff is trained to keep the students safe until they are picked up by their families.
At the end of the day, when you are picking up your child we are also in need of your help. As the end of the day is very important for the children, we appreciate having their attention and focus as they prepare their materials for home time. Please remain in the open area by the prayer pit for your children instead of outside the classrooms. Thank you for your support and co-operation with the above.
Your child’s health and maintaining a healthy, and safe school environment is of paramount importance to all of us. If your child has any medical conditions that require important health information to be shared with the school, we ask you to please notify us immediately. We have also sent home an extensive, information package to all families with various forms that will need to be filled in and returned to school. Thank you in advance for your co-operation, support and assistance with the beginning of this new school year.
We wish everyone a very happy, safe and successful school year.
Yours in Catholic Education,
Principal: Ms. J. Siska
