What's Happening this week...

Congratulations to our students who received their First Holy Communion on Sunday. 

Week of May 6-10, 2013


Congratulations to 20 of our students who received their First Holy Communion on Sunday.  It was a very beautiful day.  The children were very excited to be receiving the Body of Christ in the Eucharist. Many thanks to Miss Hewitt for her meticulous planning of the day, and to Mrs. Busto and the Grade 1 parents for hosting the wonderful reception.


On Tuesday, May 7th Lifetouch will be here to offer “Spring Photos” of the students. These photos are completely optional to parents, as these photos will not be included in our school yearbook.  If you would like your child photographed, please complete and return the portrait form that was sent home last week. Students may be photographed out of uniform (please bring your child’s gym strip if he/she has gym/track).
