NO SCHOOL- SEPT 19 & 20 – STAFF RETREAT
As we already had the days booked off for Sept. 19-20, we are not going to be taking any additional days off to commemorate the life of Queen Elizabeth II. Our staff will go ahead with our retreat plans as we already have speakers and a venue booked. Please pray for our staff as we journey with each other to build a closer relationship with our Lord.
It was lovely to see so many families at the Parish Festival and last night at the Information Night. It is a great way to welcome you all back into the schools as we strive to have a fuller community life. I have attached the slides below for those who missed the information from last night. I just wanted to acknowledge two very important staff members who were missed last night during our introductions, Mrs. Kravjanski, our Learning Support Coordinator and Vice Principal and Mrs. Stradeski, our Learning Support Teacher.
Please send your child with OUTDOOR CLOTHING. We try to go outside as much as possible and today, quite a number of them did not have sweaters or jackets. Thank you!
Yours In Christ,
Mrs. Maria Fonseca
