Blink! And that was February. While students were busy learning, so were the staff. Our Faith Development Day was an enlightening day with Father Carey, a Saturday First Aid Course brought 17 of our staff up-to-date First Aid credentials, our teacher’s convention provided a wide range of PD opportunities and consultants working alongside staff, both teachers and Educational Assistants, have supported teachers to meet the needs of our wonderful students.
We would like to make some acknowledgments. Congratulations to our students who celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation in February. A big thank you to Mrs. Smolarchuk and Mr. Medina who served us well during Mrs. Rozycki’s absence. We welcome a number of student teachers this month, Ms. Beaver, Ms. Blair, Mr. Buena, Mr. DeLara, Mr. Fabia, Ms. Olson, Ms. Garwasiuk and Ms. James. An additional change, Mona Ullah, Registered Psychologist, will be with us full time.
March brings new events. Our second reporting evening will be held on March 18 from 3pm through 7pm. We have some sessions planned for our current grade six and grade five students, so please see the newsletter for these. HOJA, an a Capella group, will be performing on Thursday, March 29. Please join us for this outstanding musical presentation. Fieldtrips, basketball season finals, Band Share and High School registration will all be happening this March. Remember, March 26 will be a full day and on March 27 we will have our early dismissal before Spring Break March 28 through April 6.
Wishing you a very holy, transformative Lenten season and a very Happy Easter.
