Grade 1

March 6th to 10th

Hello Grade One Families!

This week we had SNOW much fun!

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 I encourage everyone who can, to please come to Mass before school.

Today the students brought home their IAAGFG (I am a gift from God) workbooks. Please help your child fill in the second page of the book. It has the sentence “The most important thing about ____ is ________.” The students can draw a picture of themselves and the person they chose to write about in the space provided. This can be completed after the first parent lesson. Please return the book by Wednesday of next week.

We have come to the last week of school before Spring Break! It’s amazing how quickly time goes by!
