Good Evening BEARS Families and Friends;

Although Catholic Education Week is not until next week, activities are unfolding in our school and church already.  This morning I joined our Grade 2 students at St. Joseph Church for their Holy Communion Celebration.   I saw remarkable young people who truly understand what it means to live a life in service of others and to live in the model of Christ.  We have so very much to celebrate in our school and parish.

I look forward to some of the events that will take place next week.  We will have a Catholic Education Mass on Tuesday at St. Joseph Church.  You are welcome to attend.  In addition we will have our annual St. Bernadette Book Fair.  Please note the book fair will only be available for two days this year.  Tuesday evening, we have an exciting event for families to partake involving technology Stemotics Family Night.  I look forward in seeing you attend these and other events in the week.
