2017-2016 STAFF LIST
Every year at this time we take a moment to recognize those staff members who will not be returning to St. Bernadette’s next year and to welcome those staff members who will be new additions to our community. We begin with our farewells:
We acknowledge the contributions and dedication Ms. Wagg provided to our community over the years. Ms. Wagg left in October and has decided to continue to devote her time to her children.
Ms. Wilczewski is retiring at the end of this school year. She has served the school for 25 years and we thank her for all of her dedication, commitment and service to the students and wider community during that time. We would like to wish her all the best in the future and we hope she has many happy adventures! We look forward to her visiting the school in the near future perhaps as a teacher on call 🙂
We would like to wish much success Ms. Beliveau as she has accepted a new teaching assignment at Star of the Sea School. We look forward to having our paths cross at the many CISVA events next year!
We wish Mr. Duncan all the best as he embarks on opportunities elsewhere. We thank him for his several years of service.
Finally, we would like to thank Ms. McLellan for her year of service to the students of St. Bernadette’s. We will miss her passion and enthusiasm.
We would like to welcome back Ms. Hillard. Ms Hillard was away on maternity leave and we look forward to her return in September.
We welcome Ms. Laurie Bennett to our school. Ms. Bennett comes to us from St. Helen’s school and will be our new Learning Resource Teacher.

GRADE 6 FUNDRAISER
Grade 6 students are selling freezies every Friday, to raise money for the children suffering from the famine in South Sudan. This tragedy is close to the students’ hearts as a result of their study of this issue in Literature Circles and Social Studies this year. Freezies will be sold for $1 each or .50 cents for half. Proceeds will be sent to Development and Peace to help support the aid efforts in S. Sudan. If you have any questions or would like to donate a box of freezies to support this sale, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
