This week at SFA! April 18-22

We celebrate Earth Week at SFA! Please see Pope Francis' encyclical, Laudato Si, for information on the "urgent care for our common home." 

This week we celebrate "Earth Week" with a number of student centred activities bringing attention to our relationship with all of God's Gift of Creation.  On Thursday, April 21, students are encouraged to wear "green" to show their support (no donation needed).   Pope Francis' encyclical, Laudato Si, challenges us to think more about the environment.  Here is an excellent 3-page summary of this document, or you may read the entire document here.    

 

Sun Run 2016:  Congratulations to over 50 SFA students and parents who participated in this year's Sun Run!  After many weeks of training, including some glorious runs along the cherry blossomed streets to Trout Lake, what an accomplishment!  Thank you to our parent and staff helpers: Mrs. Kostiw, Mrs. Sudar, Mrs. Small, and Mrs. Tran.  Go Wolves!!
