December 2016 / January 2017
As we move into December and Advent, let us remember to take time to think about what is important and consider with gratitude, all that we have. The Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy officially ended on November 20th, however, our superintendent has invited us to continue, as a Catholic community, to celebrate Mercy until June 2017 and beyond. Let us continue to build forgiveness, peace and harmony in our school community and in the world.
Report cards will go live on PowerSchool at 4:00pm on December 5th. Please take some time to share and discuss your children’s’ progress with them before our Demonstration of Learning on December 8th. We are looking forward to celebrating all that our students have accomplished during this first term.
Our grade 1, 2 and 3 students have been working hard to prepare for their Primary Christmas Concert. The students in the A / B classes will perform on December 20th and the students in the C / D classes will perform on December 21st. Please watch for more information in the coming weeks regarding this exciting event. A reminder that Thursday, December 22nd is a full day and Friday, December 23rd, dismissal will be at 12:00. Classes will resume on Monday, January 9th, 2017.
Please note that there will be no January 2017 newsletter. The January 2017 calendar is included in this newsletter.
We are very grateful for your ongoing support and collaboration, especially for the trust you instill in us and our team. Wishing all of our families a very blessed Christmas.
