A father is someone you look up to no matter how tall you grow...Happy Father's Day to all of our fathers!

June.jpgAs we enter the month of June with great excitement, we cannot help the feeling of sadness creep in as we anticipate saying farewell and goodbye to classmates and teachers before leaving for summer break.  As some of us look forward to new beginnings in the fall, we are also melancholy to be leaving the familiar and comfortable place, where we all know each other.  It is with heavy hearts we say good bye to some of our staff who will move to other positions in the district or embark on new life adventures, as well as our grade six students who are heading off to junior high.  We do know that all who leave us will be blessed and challenged with new opportunities.  We are excited to have a new group of leaders, our current grade five students, enter a new school year ready to become the leaders of St. Bernadette.  As each child prepares to move into the next grade, we want them all to know how proud we are of their amazing efforts they have put forth to do their very best this year and to treat each other with kindness and respect.  Our greatest changes will be seen in our 100 Voices and kindergarten students who have grown so much this year and have blossomed into confident, independent young learners.

Our School Council and Fundraising Society are meeting for the last time this year on June 12th.  We would love to welcome newcomers to our School Council and invite you to join us.  We are so excited to announce that our casino has been reserved for November 11 and 12, 2018.  It is so important that we have parent volunteers for these two days as many of the field trips, technological devices and flex programming are covered by our casino dollars.  Without this valuable casino, a lot of this could not happen.

We will continue to accept applications for all grades, including 100 Voices and Kindergarten for the 2018-2019 school year.  We have already had such an amazing response and look forward to growing our beautiful school.  Students who attend 100 Voices must be 3 on or before September 30th and turn 4 on or before March 1, 2019.  Our full day Kindergarten is for students who are 5 on or before March 1, 2019.  Please share information about our school with your friends, family and church congregations.

As a St. Bernadette School community, we are so thankful to God for the many blessings and joy we have experienced together this past year.  As the warm weather is upon us, all the students and staff are looking forward to some much-needed summer fun, time to spend with our families and friends, and a chance to rest before the upcoming school year.

May God richly bless us all with love and continue to keep us and our families safe as we finish our first year together!
