December 14 -18

Dear Grade 6 Families,

A heartfelt thanks to all the families who donated to our Christmas Fundraising Campaign Hampers of Hope, to help those in need in our community. Your generosity is very much appreciated.

This week the children had an opportunity to confess their sins and on Monday they will celebrate Mass in the Parish centre. We are so fortunate to be able to come together as a class and prepare our hearts for this special Advent season.

Thursday is our Advent party and we will have a pizza lunch, followed by games and a movie. Thank you to our homeroom parents for organizing this event.

On Friday, students may wear Christmas themed clothes to school including ugly Christmas sweaters. The St. Paul’s students will be watching The Christmas concert in their classrooms. Parents will then have the opportunity to watch it at home.

It is Father Smith’s birthday on Friday. Wish him a Happy Birthday if you see him around.
