Good Evening BEARS Families and Friends;
We hope you had a fantastic long weekend!  This week will begin EQAO testing involving our Grade 3 students.  We hope our students are well prepared to write the spring EQAO assessments in reading, writing and mathematics and are able to demonstrate their learning in this form as well as they do during regular classroom assessments.  We wish them the best.

This Wednesday, students in Grades 4 to 8 will be at St. David Catholic Secondary School for our elementary school track and field meet.  The track meet runs from 9:30 a.m. until approximately 2:00 p.m.  We will be travelling to the high school by bus leaving after morning announcements.  Students will also be transported back to school later in the day unless arrangements have been made.  Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather.  There is no rain date available for this venue.  We will make every effort to attend the event unless there is an extreme weather condition alert.  If there is an announcement, it will be made via newswire early in the morning.  A bag lunch is recommended with lots of water, sunscreen and an umbrella for shade or rain are key items to pack for the day.  Pizza orders on line will be honoured on this day.

We would like to congratulate our Grade 7 students who will be receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation this Friday.  Please continue to pray for our students.
