For the Month of May students will focus on the virtue of Acceptance. God desires for our children to make friends with everyone, no matter how different they may look or act. At St. Bernadette’s an accepting person is one who treats everyone with respect, is non-judgemental, is welcoming to everyone, and is loving and happy with him/herself. The virtue of acceptance means we accept ourselves and others just the way we are. God does not make junk. He makes everyone in his image, and therefore everyone is a perfect creation. “If one member suffers, all suffer together with it; if one member is honoured, all rejoice together with it. Now you are the body of Christ and individually member of it” – 1 Cor. 12:26-27. This month we celebrate those in our school are being accepted more fully into the Church through the sacraments of Holy Communion and Confirmation. As Martin Luther King said “God does not love us because we are valuable. We are valuable because God loves us.” and accepts us for who we are.

Cambridge Uniforms will be here on Friday, June 5th for uniform fittings from 2:30pm-7:00pm. They are requiring that you contact the store ASAP to make appointments PRIOR TO THEM COMING ON JUNE 5TH. Phone number 604-924-9929
St. Bernadette School will be having their yearly attendance audit next month. Students who have been absent must have an absent note on file with the days & reason of absenteeism along with the parent signature. Failure in not having an absent note for the days absence not accompanied by a note could result in families having to pay a portion of the provincial funding. So if you are aware of any absent note(s) that has not been handed in to the office, please send it in at your earliest convenience.
The Inside Scoop is an informal way for the families to communicate with other families. It is a newsletter that goes out on the 3rd Wednesday of every month. If you need services, have an item to sell, giving away items, etc. this is the place to advertise. The Inside Scoop is prepared by Anne-Marie Palma and sent out through the School. If you need to place an advertisement in the Inside Scoop you can e-mail her at Please e-mail her no later than the second Friday of each month.
