Construction on Junior/Intermediate Natural Playground is…COMPLETE!

There is construction fencing is GONE and the work is complete. So many students were interested in using it that we needed to put a schedule of use in place! Thank you parents for your generosity and support of the project. It makes a real difference to so many kids!

Halloween FUNdraiser Dance-A-Thon is ON!

Earlier in the month, each child was sent home a pledge form and a letter explaining how the funds will be used. We are excited to launch our fundraiser early this year so the additional resources can be deployed earlier to our children and benefit their learning in the year the donations were made. When we partner with our parent community, we know it makes a world of difference for our kids’ educational experience. We are grateful for your continued support. Looking forward to a Fun Event and the enhancements the fundraising provides for our students’ school year. A reminder: Donations for the Raffle Table and All Pledges Due October 24th. ONLY 10 DAYS LEFT!!!!

Parents, please speak to your son or daughter about becoming an altar server.  Training will be held soon. Students (Grade 4 and older) who would like to be altar servers are asked to contact Fr. Irek or Mrs. Roy at the parish office or email

Grade 4 Bible Celebration Was AWESOME!

Our Grade 4 students received their Bibles that were blessed by Father Irek at a special celebration earlier in the week. It was well attended by our parents and we are grateful that so many were able to join us for the special moment in our children’s faith journey. Thank you to Mr. Dosen, Mrs. McNally and Mrs. Mederak for preparing our children to be ready for the great celebration.

Hot Lunch Orders

Many students choose to participate in our hot lunch program. Each Wednesday we have a different vendor and every Friday is Pizza Day. Please do not feel obligated to participate in every hot lunch offering that we provide. However, when you choose to use the service, all of the proceeds go directly to programs that enhance the educational experience of all students at Holy Spirit School.
