The Week Ahead May 7 to 11

Another Wonderful Week Ahead…

Our students enjoyed a beautiful week of weather, and were able to go outside almost every recess of the week! In between all the outdoor fun, we had 2 successful fire drills and the fire department visited our Kindergarten classes to support their learning in Fire Safety. Our Star Wars day on “May the Fourth Be With You” was a lot of fun and we have another exciting week ahead. Please join us for any of the events taking place this week as it is Catholic Education Week. One of the things that makes Catholic Education unique is the positive relationships we form with parents, school, parish and the community as we partner to live out our faith in tangible ways. Our school volunteers do so much for our community, and a special breakfast is planned for 8:30 AM on Tuesday. We hope you will be able to join us. We also have a liturgy Monday and Tuesday, so if your schedule allows for it we would love to celebrate with you. Our school Folk Dance team is performing at the Preston Arena on Tuesday evening and all are welcome to attend. All the details for these and other events are below.


Updated Safe Drop Off and Pick Up Protocols are still in Effect…

Our community transitioned smoothly towards the updated protocols and everybody seems to be in routine. We will always have staff on duty during drop-off and pick-up to facilitate this process. Thank you parents for the way we worked together to overcome any implementation challenges. As always, if you have a friend or relative picking up for the first time please remind them of the updated process and ask them to connect with one of our staff members in a safety vest if they have any questions.  Thanks for your continued support and cooperation during our arrival and departure windows.
