  • Thank you to everyone who filled out our photo survey. I have shared some of your concerns with Lifetouch Photo. Overall, the survey showed satisfaction with Lifetouch, with a few suggestions for improvement. One change this year and moving forward will be the omission of the Spring Photos. Orders can still be dropped off at the school office.
  • We are only 1 week away from Walk-a-thon! Please encourage your children to try and raise some money this weekend. If every child in the school raises $100.00, we would exceed our goal!
  • A big thank you to our Walk-a-thon Sponsors and to Mr. Dharamshi and Signvisions for helping us with our T-shirts.  The T-Shirts will be delivered next week and handed out in time for Walk-a-thon.
  • I have received information from Eric Langton School that some of the St. Pat’s parents have been parking in their parking lot. For those parents that have been here for a while, you will know that there has been a bit of a history with the Eric Langton parents parking in our lot. This caused many problems, and it has taken a lot of working together with Eric Langton to alleviate this problem. The last thing we want is for our parent community to be doing the same. Please use only the St. Patrick’s Parish parking lot. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
  • Winter uniform is in effect, starting Tuesday, October 11th. Boys are not permitted to wear shorts anymore, and girls need to be wearing the kilt. Please ensure that your child has their sweater or vest with them at school.
  • The badminton program this year has unfortunately had to be cancelled as their coach has fallen ill. We will be having a tennis program instead from Nov. 1-9.
  • Please pray for the repose of the soul of Linden and Tanner Walz’s grandfather who passed away last week.
