Grade 1

February 26 – March 1

Hello Grade One Families!

On Wednesday, we celebrated our 100th Day of School! The children had such a wonderful time seeing each other’s projects, looking at their wonderful 100 day outfits, and completing 100 day activities in class. What a fun celebration of our first 100 days of school today.

Last week your child brought home their Lenten Mite Box. Money raised from the Mite boxes is given to the seminarians from the Archdiocese of Vancouver who are currently studying for the priesthood. Please keep the Mite box in a safe place at home, encourage your child(ren) to donate coins throughout Lent, and then return the Mite box to school during Holy Week. This is one way that we will practice almsgiving this Lenten season. We are also asked to pray for the seminarians during Lent that God will bless them in their studies and their vocation. Thank you!

Thank you also to all those who have been able to attend the daily 8:15 am morning Mass last week. The Masses will continue this week and we encourage everyone who can, to please come to Mass before school begins.
