30TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION – TASTE OF THE NATIONS – UPDATES
Food Booths – We are full!!! We have booths from India, the Philippines, Germany, Canada, just to name a few. We are very excited for the wide array of food that will be available – you will not go home hungry!
Ticket Sales – We have steadily seen an increase in ticket sales and interest. Please get your ticket early as there are limited supplies. We believe we will sell out and we want you there.
General Volunteers – we need close to 40 people to volunteer for many tasks during the Taste of the Nation Celebration. Here is what you need to know:
– It is not for the whole night – the tasks are broken into shifts so you can enjoy the event while still contributing to it. It is designed so all parents can partake in the celebrations!
– You still need to purchase a ticket – unlike the food booths where families are donating food, decorations, and other items, this is not a requirement for general volunteers. Only those who volunteer to set up before or clean up after the event do not necessarily require the purchase of a ticket (we still hope you come and celebrate with us!). By breaking it up into shifts, we ensure that there will be a good chunk of the evening for you to enjoy and celebrate.
We hope this helps clarify a few questions we have been receiving over the past couple of weeks.

Your presence helps bring our community together and forms excellent bonds between our families. Tickets are only $25 each and will be on sale until Feb. 10th, 2017. We have limited seating. Tickets are NOT available at the door so don’t miss out! (no minors)
When purchasing tickets by cheque, please make cheques payable to
St. Bernadette Parish.
Application forms for new students for the upcoming school year 2017-18 are now available and can be picked up from the school office. Families who have children entering Kindergarten will be given the application form with the Re-registration package.Re-registration will be on Thursday, February 16th 8:00am-7:00pm. Re-registration packages will be sent home in the next week or so. If you haven’t notified the office that you have a child applying for admittance for the 2017-18 school year, please do so as soon as possible.
If your child(ren) will NOT re returning for the school year 2017-18, please inform the office.
Current families get their re-registration fee for the following year (currently $150) waived if they refer a family that stays the year.
As we prepare to head into re-registration this week, it is important to note that our numbers are increasing at a very steady rate. This means that our classes have less available space for new families. Please note, on March 6th, 2017, any families who have not re-registered will have their space given to a new family. Once the class is full a waiting list will be created.
Normally we would post the available seats in each class, however, with numbers changing so frequently we will not be posting availability until re-registration is complete. We can say with certainty that we will have a waiting list for Kindergarten and Gr. 6. We are very close to waiting lists in a number of other classes.
A full school is a healthy school. It allows for the growth of many programs and opportunities for students. If you know of someone who would like to attend out school, please have them hand in an application form to the office.
