We will once again be having the “Used Uniforms” program. One of our parents, Angeline Yaschyshyn, has kindly volunteered to be in charge of keeping inventory and distributing the requested used uniform item. If you have any school uniform and/or gym strip items and shoes that your child has outgrown and would like to donate to the “Used Uniform” program, please contact Angeline Yaschyshyn via e-mail:email@example.com. The used uniform items will be sold at a very inexpensive rate and all proceeds generated from the sales come back directly to the school. We hope to have this program up and running soon.
The last practice for the School Choir will be on Monday, May 8th. The choir will resume next school year as long as we get enough parent help/supervision. Mrs. Ellis, our current music director will not be available, Mr. Roy will be taking her place. The role of the parent will strictly be to supervise the students and to ensure their safety when being dismissed from practice. This volunteer commitment will count as parent participation hours. Please contact the office if you are able to help out with this commitment.

Mother’s Day Tea will be on Thursday, May 11th from 10:00am-11:00am. There will be our morning Mass led by the Grades 1 & 4. Following Mass, we will gather in the parish hall for light refreshments.

It is important that parents accompany their child(ren) as there might be some comics that are not suitable for young children. This year the date is Saturday May 6th, 2017, please contact your local comic book store to see if they are participating.
