Happy Father’s Day…
Holy Spirit Families: We hope you receive this while enjoying festivities celebrating the fathers in your life. We value the partnerships that we have with the families in our community, and we also recognize that each family is unique. However you decide to spend today, please know that your presence in your children’s lives makes a world of difference. Whether it is reading a report card comment quoting a Kindergarten student or hearing students talk about their families on the yard, the impact you have in your children’s world is huge. They are so excited to talk about how much they love their moms and dads! Thank you for all you do to support them in their learning journey at Holy Spirit School.
An INCREDIBLE Reward Day!
Thank you to all of the parents who volunteered to chaperone our Spirit Reward to the World Premiere of The Incredibles 2. So many students were happy to attend and it was a meaningful reward for all of their acts of kindness and community building they have done through the year. A special thank you to parent council for subsidizing the cost of the buses.
ECO TEAM EARNS HOLY SPIRIT SCHOOL A GOLD CERTIFICATION…
The MIGHTY Holy Spirit was one of only a handful of schools who earned GOLD Certification as an Eco-School. From leading the community through Earth Hour to supporting all classes wash their plates after a pancake breakfast to planting seedlings that gave each class an opportunity to learn and participate in greening our campus…the ECO TEAM DOES IT ALL! We are particularly proud of the vision that our teacher leaders promote because it emphasizes community awareness and education, rather than transforming our students into an environmental police force. Eco-Team continues to make us proud and it would not be possible without the tireless efforts of Mrs. Livingston, Ms. Tremblay and Mrs. Brown.
Cake-For-A-Change Mission Day…
After consultation with staff about our annual mission day, we are really excited to try a new format for the day. This Friday, June 22nd, we are going to hold a Cake Walk and we are inviting any staff and parents that want to join in to bake or purchase a cake that will be raffled off to benefit families in need within our Holy Spirit Community. Additional information and Ticket order forms went home last week, but parents will have the option of using Cash Online to purchase raffle tickets. This will be SWEET day for our community!
If you did not receive the form from your son or daughter, it can be found in the link below.
