Weekly Update December 11th to 15th

Good Afternoon,

Today, we are reminded we need to prepare for the rebirth of Jesus.  We are invited by the Church to prepare for Christmas by repenting our sins and renewing our lives so that Jesus may be reborn in us.  Also we need to recognize Jesus’ rebirth in our lives by our sharing love, unconditional forgiveness and compassion.  This week we will have the opportunity to repent when students in Grade 3 to 8 will have the opportunity to reconcile during confession.  We also  are sharing our love and support for our community with the following wonderful activities: Stuff a Stocking Campaign newswire  and St. Bernadette Angel Tree and Food Drive 2017  Thank you Christine Rito, Michele Reuber and Ms. Hanley for your leadership involving these projects.  Our school community is invited to get involved and show your support.

Our school will be having its Annual Christmas Lunch this Tuesday, December 12th.  We are asking each student to please contribute $2.00 for the meal:  Christmas TurkeyDinner.  It will include turkey and all the fixings.  Thank you to our School Council for this wonderful event and Lisa Rittinger who year after year has coordinated our Turkey dinners.

Lastly, congratulations goes out to our Girl Basketball Team including Ms. Baillie.  Our girls finished first in the tournament and most importantly they represented our school with fair play, competitiveness and with pride.  Way to go girls!
