Celtics Chatter – Friday, March 1, 2024

Living, Celebrating, and Proclaiming Our Faith



Friday, March 1, 2024

Dear Families,

Congratulations to our Grade 7 boys’ and Grade 6 girls’ basketball teams, who are moving on to the quarter-finals. They will be playing at the Richmond Oval on March 6. Good luck, and Go Celtics!

Thank you to all our athletes, coaches and volunteers who have come out this season and given it their all! We are proud of all of you!

Thank you to our Grade Two students for leading the school in a St. Patrick’s Day assembly!

St. Patrick, pray for us!

Prayer for the Third Week of Lent

Loving Father,
So many times I turn away from you
and always you welcome me back.
Your mercy and love gives me confidence
Thank you for the invitation to share, fast and pray
so that you can form a new heart within me.
Your powerful compassion for my weaknesses
leads me to ask for mercy
and await with great hope the Easter joy you share with us.

Yours In Christ,

Mrs. Fonseca

Hot Lunch on March 6 & Celtics Spirit Wear-

Lunch Drop Offs

We are seeing an unusual number of lunches being dropped off before noon. It is taking a lot of time from the office to deliver them or call the students down. Please note that we will not be calling students down to pick up lunches. If you bring a lunch for your child, please deposit them outside the office LABELLED with your child’s name and grade. Your child can come down and check for their lunch after the recess bell rings.

If lunch has been forgotten at home, you will still receive a phone call from the office.

Traffic Control Tasks

We are in need of filling in tasks for an afternoon traffic controller to help with the flow of cars. If you are IN NEED OF HOURS, please check your portal to sign up.

Income Tax Receipts

Your income tax receipt is available for pick up at the office! Please come and get them.

If you prefer that we send it home with your child, email Mrs. Rieu at [email protected].
