VIRTUE OF THE MONTH
The virtue of the month for June is Patience. It is such a fitting virtue at this time of the year not just for the students but for us educators and parents. It feels like it is go, go, go (for some of us it might feel this way all year round!) and that commitments and final preparations before the summer break comes keep piling up. The virtue of patience reminds us that all though we want to hurry up and get things done, or have things come, we need to rest in the watchful embrace of God. As we know from Elijah, we can’t find God in the noise, but in the silence “a tiny whisper sound”. When we are trying to be patient, it is good to stop and listen to the tiny whisper of God’s voice.
PARENT APPRECIATION SOCIAL/TALENT SHARE
The staff of St. Bernadette School would like to extend an invitation to all our volunteers who have made our 2015-16school year such a success with all their hard work and support of both our students and teachers. To show our appreciation we are holding a Social @1:00pm in conjunction with the Talent Share on Monday, June 20th. Supervision for students and younger siblings will be provided. Students who are participating in the Talent Share are reminded to bring their music, instruments, etc. that they will need/require for their performance.
Employment Opportunity at St. Bernadette School

Responsibilities include supervising children while they play and/or complete activities, help organize/create games and activities, monitor pick-up of children, complete daily attendance, and other duties assigned by the principal. The successful candidate requires training in first aid and will be working in support of the coordinator for the two days. Flexibility to cover for another Stingers employee due to illness or emergency is required.

We are very thankful to have such amazing families in our school. Thank you for sharing your experiences with your families, friends, co-workers, and neighbours. It makes us stronger as a community and it ultimately benefits the education of your child and the new families that join us.
