Merry Christmas St. Bernadette School Community!


As we enter the final month of 2017, we celebrate so many wonderful things our students have learned and accomplished since September.  It was delightful to see so many of you visiting classrooms and sharing in activities with your children at our Demonstration of Learning! november.jpg

A new liturgical year begins in the church as we enter the Advent Season on Sunday, December 3rd waiting in joyful hope to celebrate the coming of our Saviour, Jesus, at Christmas.  During this season, we encourage our students to develop a deep attitude of gratitude for the many gifts and blessings we are all so fortunate to receive.  It is the season to be filled with wonder, and may our hearts and our arms be opened to giving of our selves to those around us.  During Advent, we can prepare our hearts as the manger to receive Jesus by praying and doing good deeds for others. 

We look forward to seeing all of you at our Christmas Concert on December 14th.  This year we will be hosting our Christmas Concert at St. Clare Parish.  What a wonderful opportunity for our school and parish community!  For those of you who do not know where St. Clare is, we can be found at 6310 – 118 Avenue.

As always, we want to take this opportunity to thank all parents who volunteer for our morning snack program!  Many hands make light work and we truly appreciate each and every parent and volunteer who has been in to support our students.  We are looking for parent volunteers for our school hot lunch on December 15th.  Please let us know if you can assist us on the 15th.  Our calendar has been included in this newsletter so you can stay up to date about our volunteer and snack schedule.  


Warm Blessings,
