“I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for my sheep.”John 10: 14-15

Dear Families,

Many times in the Bible, we see the comparison of Jesus as our shepherd. It is a comforting thought as a shepherd takes care of his flock. We in turn should care for each other. With sheep, separation or isolation from the flock can cause stress and panic. They are social creatures just like we are. In times of stress, we should remember to be kind, reach out to one another and share in the positive flock mentality. We are here for each other!

A big thank you to all those who attended our first virtual parent evening! We had a wonderful turn out and I am grateful to Eric Chow, Mary & Randy Tabada, Ms. McBride and Mr. de Guzman for helping to facilitate the evening. We hope to be able to present more parenting evenings in the future.

If you are interested in the viewing Brain Heart World, please visit brainheartworld.org. The videos are free and there are discussion guides to start the conversations with your own families.

Yours In Christ,

Mrs. Maria Fonseca

What’s New?

Class Photos on Monday, April 26th

ALL students need to be in full uniforms on Monday (no gym strip or sweatsuits) for class photos. Don’t forget school sweaters! Gr. 7’s are allowed to wear their Gr. 7 graduation sweatshirts.

Our Gr. 4-7 classes will have to wear masks as we cannot socially distance them in the photos.

Masks are optional for Gr. K-3. Please write in your child’s agenda if you WANT them to keep their masks ON for the photos.

At this point, we are not including Transition Students in our in person class photo but invite them on Zoom to have a Zoom photo done so we can include it in our Yearbook. Our Zoom photo will take place at 1pm on MONDAY, APRIL 26. Please join in the link below:
