Dear Parents and Guardians:
Already into the month of February! Working together, we have accomplished much since the beginning of the school year and we have many exciting learning and school community events planned between now and June. February is a month dedicated to love, kindness and caring. Reflecting on Matthew 22: 37-39, let’s all work towards loving our neighbors as ourselves. Our neighbors are all people everywhere, not only our close friends and those within our community. Let us show kindness and love throughout the world each day.
On February 7th, all staff will be participating in our Faith Development Day. This year, our theme is: We Are Called ... To Be Leaders of Hope and Mercy. We are pleased to welcome David Wells as our keynote speaker. We also welcome Archbishop Richard Smith who will celebrate the Eucharistic with us.
Family Day gives us the opportunity to pause and focus on time with our families. We are looking forward to the annual Family Dance on February 16th, which will be a great way to lean into the long weekend.
We are preparing for our second reporting period. Report cards will go live on PowerSchool on Monday, March 13th. Demonstration of Learning takes place on Wednesday, March 15th. Please join us in encouraging our students to keep focused and motivated, and to be diligent in their studies. We look forward to celebrating all of the learning our students have done during our second term.
Warm wishes for a great month of February!
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Matthew 22: 37-39
