Good Evening BEARS Families and Friends,
We would like to thank our fantastic school community for a successful dance-a-thon.  The outpouring of prizes and support was truly amazing.  If you have not handed in your pledge sheet and money, do so as soon as possible.  Wednesday afternoon we will be drawing names for the prizes.  A special thank you goes out to school council members including Lisa McKay, Christine Rito and Michele Reuber for coordinating the event. Well done ladies!

This week our social justice club will begin Personal Items Drive as part of our Lenten initiative.  Please support by bringing in unopened full or travel size personal hygiene items.  All items will be given to Mill-Courtland Centre.

In recognition of National Volunteer Week, the staff and students from St. Bernadette would like to acknowledge the work of our volunteers , and say “Thank you!”  Like the pebble thrown in the still lake, ripples arise and begin to spread, the gift of time, caring and consideration have both a direct effect on our students as well as a lasting effect for  long time to come.  Undeniably, the many volunteers at St. Bernadette Catholic School are the best! Many thanks to all those who have been a valuable volunteer.
