Only two more days until break!  I hope that you all have a relaxing and warm weekend!  Please remember the Secondary School is continuing their exams on Monday.  If there are signs on the library door, do not cut through!  Also, remember that Tuesday is Champs integration day for Grades 1st-5th.  This may cause your Champs schedule to change, if that is the case, the teacher should have reached out to you to make changes.  

Have a great weekend!

Canned Food Drive - 2017

This food drive is conducted by the St. Vincent DePaul Society.  The items are used to put together food baskets for those in our parish or surrounding area, who are in need of food this Christmas season.  This is a different organization than the Soup-er Stadium Challenge, which we did in September.

Preschool - Meat Soups (200), Chicken Soups (200), Vegetable Soups (200), Chili (with or without meat) (100)

Kindergarten - canned green beans (100), canned beans (pinto, kidney, black, etc.) (100)

If each student brought in about 4 cans, we will reach our goal.  

Teacher Committee Assignments

Below are your committee assignments for the 2017-18 school year.  As our Tuesday PD time is already planned out for the remainder of the calendar year, we are expecting each committee to meet at least one time outside of PD time.  Your committee lead should be reaching out to you to set up a meeting, if they have not yet done so already.  If you have any questions, please let me know!
