From the Principal

A time to wait and prepare.

Dear Parents, This Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent. Having spent most of my teaching career in a primary classroom, I found Advent to be the most joyous liturgical season to share with children.  With a busy calendar full of family, personal, and professional obligations each December, it is very easy to become distracted […]

Heartfelt Thanks

Dear St. Paul Community, It is with tremendous gratitude and appreciation that we say a heartfelt thank you to this most generous and giving community.  Our annual Walkathon was once again a huge success, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication of the students and families who gathered pledges, the parents who volunteered […]

Sexuality and Your Child

This coming Monday evening we have a very important parent meeting for all parents in Grades 4 to 7.  We are all aware that parents are the first teachers of their children, and helping children form a healthy understanding of human relationships, sexuality, and dating through the lens of our Catholic faith is of significant importance.  It […]

Alleluia!

This coming Easter Sunday we will be able to proclaim Alleluia, Alleluia! Christ is Risen!  This is the truth on which we build our faith, and now we are challenged to proclaim and live this truth, which is not as easy as it sounds.  Looking back to Holy Week at our school, I would like […]
