Dear Parents and Guardians:
March brought much joy to us as we continue to celebrate the gifts of our community. With the support of the grade 1/2A class and our ambassador Cheyanne Mattern, they raised $456.16 for the Stollery Children’s Hospital. We had six lucky winners of the Charity Bears and much joy amongst all the staff and children who supported this initiative. Cheyanne proudly presented the cheque at the Heart of Glee Benefit on March 19th at the Myer Horowitz Theatre.
We also shared in the celebration of The Travelling Cross that was at St. Justin on March 9 & 10 and had the pleasure of having the Western Catholic Reporter interview our children and photograph this historic event. Our story can be viewed at http://www.wcr.ab.ca/ThisWeek/Stories/tabid/61/entryid/6492/Default.aspx
The Travelling Cross will make its way to all of our schools and symbolizes the life and dedication of our beloved Father Mike Mireau and a book documenting this journey will be made for all of us to share.
The cry of the Easter Season will ring out around the world announcing the resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord. With this joy we will return to school after a wonderful break on Tuesday April 7. Be sure to join us for our Easter celebration on Wednesday April 15 at 2:00pm here at the school. Everyone is always welcome! Led by Father Carlos, we will be gathering in the gym to celebrate our faith journey as a community.
Blessings to all of you,
Rena Methuen, Principal & Kevin Myskiw, Assistant Principal
