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
This year’s theme for the Sports/Fun day on Friday, June 12th is “Under the Sea”. We will post the schedule of events in next week’s newsletter. Dismissal will be at 1:00pm.
Sports/Fun day is not to be confused with the Year End BBQ which is on Friday, June 5th 5:30-9:00pm in the school gym.
