For the Month of April students will focus on the virtue of courage. Courage is one of the four cardinal virtues, more commonly referred to as fortitude. When we think of courage we tend to associate it with bravery. However, courage is more than just bravery. We want our children to know that courage is having the ability to strengthen ones own mind. It is the virtue by which one meets and sustains difficulties and yet is not deterred from the pursuit of good. Moral courage is the ability to act rightly in the face of popular opposition. As Catholics it takes deep courage to attend to our faith when popular opinion and media say otherwise. We hope that this month, students will have opportunities to strengthen their minds.

A revised re-registration checklist form is being sent home today.

Students in Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 2 are holding a fundraiser for Canadian Development and Peace by selling plants on Tuesday, May 5 just in time for Mother’s Day.
Kindergarten and Grade 1 will be selling plants that they have grown during their Science unit and Grade 2 will be the cashiers to build on their Math unit about coins. We are also selling (by pre-order only) beautiful plants from De Vry Greenhouses which would make great Mother’s Day gifts.
If you are interested in supporting this fundraiser and would like the convenience of pick up of Mother’s Day gifts at the school on Tuesday, May 5, please complete the attached order form and return to the school with payment by Friday, April 24.
Mark your calendars for pick up of plants and sale of Kindergarten and Grade 1 plants on Tuesday, May 5.
If you have any questions, please contact Mrs Fraser, Mme Peck, Mrs Hillard or Mrs Schollen at the school. Thank you for your support.
