Kindergarten

June 14th – 18th

Hi Kinder families,

Thank you to all families for the generous and thoughtful baby basket, class video, best wishes, and prayers. It was definitely a birthday to remember! This year’s walkathon was a wonderful success! Thank you to all Kindergarten families for participating. The grand total for our Walkathon fundraiser this year was $67,176.00!!! On Tuesday, Justice’s family celebrated his life, and had his funeral Mass. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Please continue to keep the Guno family in your prayers, and to pray for the repose of the soul of our dear friend, Justice. As we wrap up our Kindergarten year together, we look forward to the week ahead where we celebrate the Grade 7 fundraiser, as well as our Kindergarten Fun Day. Just a reminder that both days will be dress down days, however, no donation is needed for either day.
