Prayer is the key to heaven but Faith unlocks the door. ~Anonymous

As March begins and we celebrate the feast of Saint Patrick, I am reminded how lucky we are that God has blessed our efforts to "make a new plan" and to be the best people we can be. Given the cold temperatures and icy conditions we have endured so far this winter, spring cannot come soon enough! We are hopeful that March will bring warmer temperatures and signs of spring! Our indoor garden is planted in our music room and our gardeners are itching to get out into the soil to plant their flowers and vegetables.

March Newsletter.pngDuring March, we have much to look forward to. We begin our journey into the season of Lent.  On Shrove Tuesday, we will be serving a pancake breakfast for all students.  On Ash Wednesday, we will have our celebration at 2pm which will help us enter our time of fasting and preparation for the resurrection of Jesus. We pray that God will bless all our efforts to become more like Jesus through our acts of prayer, fasting and almsgiving as we journey together during these forty days leading up to Easter. We look forward to the celebration of Jesus' resurrection at Easter when our buried ALLELUIAS will come to life with shouts of joy.

This month we celebrate the amazing growth and learning that our students have accomplished and host our second Demonstration of Learning on March 14!  Be sure to come and see the wonderful projects your children are doing.  The support they receive from home as well as at school is so important for their educational success.

The grade six students will be our hosts at the Pasta Night/Silent Auction on Friday, April 12th as this is our main fundraiser to pay for their trip to Camp Warwa in June. Be sure to mark your calendars and invite your friends and relatives!  We have donation request letters here in our office; if you know of businesses who could donate to our amazing cause, please come and take a few from Mrs. Alves.

Planning for next year is already underway so we would like to know if your child will be returning to St. Bernadette in the fall. New registrations for 2019-2020 in all grades, including 100 Voices and full day kindergarten are welcome! We look forward to meeting many new families and showing off our wonderful school at our Open House on March 14 from 6:30pm – 8:00pm.

We look forward to our spring break at the end of March, when we are given the gift of time where we renew and relax in preparation to begin the final stretch of the school year.

Thank you to all who make our school a place where we truly celebrate the gift of every child!
