Dear Families,

It has been a fun-filled, jam packed short week at St. Pat’s. We celebrated Catholic Schools Week, Valentine’s Day, the Olympics and wrapped up our Hip Hop unit! A special thanks to Jerome from Vibe 1 for choreographing and teaching all our classes (and staff)! The videos will be sent home next week!

We wish you and your family a wonderful and safe long weekend.

Yours In Christ,

Mrs. Maria Fonseca

Mandate Updates – February 15th, 2022

The Provincial Health Officer made an announcement yesterday and with regards to masks, we are still mandated to wear masks in the indoor setting, including schools. The next review will be in March.

We thank you for your support in this area. While we acknowledge that this can be challenging, we do our best to ensure to meet all the needs of our community.

As the vaccine passport mandates are still in place, we are also holding off on hosting any in person events for parents.

Used Uniform Sale – March 3rd

Mrs. Tuck is preparing a used uniform sale for March 3rd.

We are collecting used uniform donations in good condition by Mon. February 28th. No tears, rips or stains please. Any proceeds from donated pieces go back to the school.

If you would like to sell your pieces through the sale, please ensure that the pieces are in good conditioned, laundered and places in a ziplock bag with your family name and price on it.

For inquiries, please contact [email protected]

Sports Update

Thank you to our basketball coaches: Mr. Geary, Mrs. Murphy, Ms. Molina & Mr. Brooks for their time and effort in coaching our school teams. It was nice to be able to play against other schools again!

We look forward to our Track and Field season in the spring!

Go Celtics!
