Weekly Update May 7th to 11th

Greeting Bears Families and Friends:

Beginning today, our school joins all Catholic Schools in the province of Ontario in celebrating Catholic Education Week.  This is a time for us to reflect on our mission and celebrate our successes.  This week, we celebrate our Catholic schools by looking forward and bringing with us the joy of the gospels and our faith in Jesus Christ.  Bishop Crosby’s letter for Catholic Education week is attached for you to read:  Bishop’s Letter — Catholic Education Week – May 7, 2018 – E.  There is also a wonderful video about Catholic Education Week at  Our school would be happy to welcome you to any of our special activities during this week as highlighted on our school newsletter and at St. Bernadette Catholic Education Week calendar 2018.docx (1)
