Grade 1

Spring Break (March 27 – 31)

Hello Grade One Families!

Happy Spring Break!!!

It’s hard to believe we have already gotten to this stage of the school year! 

A couple reminders for during the break:

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 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!

IAAGFG (I am a gift from God) – We will be sending home the booklets for the students to work on the next lesson in their program over the Spring Break. Please help your child complete p. 3 and read through p.4 with them about Saying “No” in situations where they do not feel safe. 

Friday March 31st will be class photo day. 

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 the week we return to school after Spring Break. We encourage everyone who can, to please come to Mass before school.

And finally, we hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing and fun Spring Break! We look forward to seeing you all on Monday, March 27th.
