  • Congratulations to our Cross Country runners on a great season! A big thank you to Mrs. Stradeski for her hard work in organizing the season, as well as to the staff that helped with practices and meets. A special thank you to our very small group of Grade 7 students who persevered and stuck with Cross Country through all their elementary school years – you showed great spirit and Celtic pride. J
  • Walk-a-thon pledge forms and moneys are now overdue – please ensure that you have sent the envelope back to school with your pledge sheet and money. Please note that even if you did not raise any money, we still need the empty pledge sheet back. Only once we have everything back can we total our pledges and hand out the prizes.
  • If you have not yet signed up for your parent/teacher conferences, please ensure that you follow the link that was emailed to you this week and sign up. Spaces are very limited. Thank you to all the parents that registered their times so quickly! This is the first year we are trying this system, and so far the feedback has been good. The process is simple and efficient! Please be reminded that this conference is for parents only – students are not to be in attendance.
  • A kind reminder that there are to be no treats brought to school for Halloween. We also ask that you refrain from sending Halloween chocolates to school with your child as a snack, unless they are marked peanut free. Most Halloween candies contain or may contain nuts, and the last thing we want is to compromise the safety of those students with severe nut allergies.
  • We will be welcoming an autism service dog, starting next Wednesday in the Grade 3 class. Although the dog will be in the Grade 2 Rocket’s class, it will become a part of our school community, and as such it is important that all students are aware of proper behavior around the dog. There will be a full school assembly on Wednesday for all students, to review proper procedures, behaviours and handling of the service dog.
  • Please pray for the repose of the soul of Mr. Harvey, Nicola and Marino Harvey’s grandfather, who passed away this morning.
  • Congratulations to the Whelton family and the Adamyk family on the birth of their babies! We welcome them to our school and parish family!
  • School photographs went home today if you ordered a package please check your child’s backpack.
  • Fundraising news: If you would like to purchase tickets for Paint Night you can purchase them through the fundraising committee by October 31. You can email Shannon McKenzie at svanderpauw@hotmail.com.


Thank you for your ongoing support. Have a great weekend.

Yours in Christ,
