The Week Ahead March 26 to 30

We journey into Holy Week Together…

Today was Palm Sunday which begins Holy Week. This is week of reflection where we have the opportunity to celebrate the resurrection and appreciate Christ’s passion and suffering. If you are unsure of what the specific days are or what they mean, there is a great video you can check out which will help you if your younger children have questions about our Easter holiday. It is only 2 minutes long and gets to the heart of what Holy Week is about. Check it out below:

2 Minute Video Explaining Holy Week

SAVE THE DATE! Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast May 8th

Holy Spirit School is a vibrant community with a lot of things happening. This would NOT be possible without the many parent volunteers that help our school. Whether you have been a guest reader in Kindergarten, helped on parent council or maybe volunteered for a field trip… this event is for you! The event will take place at Holy Spirit School during Catholic Education Week, and you are welcome to attend the Open House following the breakfast. Please save the date: Tuesday, May 8th 8:30AM to 9:30AM. We would love everyone who has volunteered to attend so we can honour your valuable contributions to our school.

 News from St. Ambrose Parish

Good Friday Service for Children will be held at 11:00am on Friday, March 30, 2018.  If your child would like to participate by doing a reading, please contact Barb at the parish office.  All families are welcome.

LAST CHANCE TOMORROW to have your say about the board’s budget!

The WCDSB is currently seeking feedback from all members of our community, especially our parent partners. Please take a few minutes to have your say about where the board should direct our resources to best meet the learning needs of the Holy Spirit Community. The Senior team at the board really does value the input parents provide, and will definitely use this data as they create priorities and goals for the latest strategic plan.

A link to the survey is below, but will only be active until March 26th! It will only take a few minutes to have your voice count.
