November 28th – December 2nd

Hi Kindergarten families! Today we led our first mass and we are so proud at what a great job the children did and we look forward to participating in future masses. During mass today Father Felix blessed our classroom Advent wreath, reminding us that the season of Advent is upon us! It will certainly be a busy few weeks but we are getting excited for all the Advent season brings. We also had another celebration this week as Miss Guevara graduated with her Masters from UBC yesterday! Go Miss G!
