Welcome back Mrs. Monteiro as our FSL teacher. We also welcome Mrs. Connolly to grade 4/5.


Thank you to Mrs. Milito and Mrs. Idzik and their classes for leading the Opening Liturgy on September 27th. Our next Mass is Thursday November 8th at St. Patrick’s Church.

We will be rolling out our ‘Umbrella Project’ Watch for more information. The October Umbrella skill we will focus on is: GRATITUDE.


Thanksgiving Prayer:

Father in Heaven, Creator of all and source of all goodness and love, please look kindly upon us and receive our heartfelt gratitude in this time of giving thanks. Thank you for all the graces and blessings. You have bestowed upon us, spiritual and temporal: our faith and religious heritage. Our food and shelter, our health, the loves we have for one another, our family and friends. Dear Father, in Your infinite generosity, please grant us continued graces and blessing throughout the coming year. This we ask in the Name of Jesus, Your Son and our Brother. Amen.



Thank you for respecting our ‘Student Safety Zone’ sign at the entrance to our parking lot. I thank the staff that volunteer to be at the gates in the morning and afterschool. Also, please be extra safe while picking up on the road. Please do not block driveways, and do not let students cross the road unattended to be picked up.


Please ensure you completed all the start-up paperwork found on Cash -online
