Enter His gates with Thanksgiving and His courts with Praise; give Thanks to Him and Praise His name. ~ Psalm 100:4


It seems hard to believe that we are already one month into the new school year!  October is a time of quiet reflection and thanksgiving, a time where we ponder the wonderful things God has provided for us. Thanksgiving.jpg

Thank you very much to all parents who volunteered for our morning snack program!  Many hands make light work and we truly appreciate having you all come in and help to provide nourishment to our students.  There are still many dates that require parent volunteers so please consider helping us out.  We have many exciting activities planned for our children this year that would not be possible without your support.  Our School Council and Fundraising Society will be meeting again on October 23rd at 6:30pm.  We would love to welcome newcomers to our School Council and invite you to join us as your input into our school programming is greatly appreciated.  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 the amazing programming would not be possible.

The students at St. Bernadette had an amazing call to action and collected funds to support Terry Fox's goal to find a cure for cancer.  This year, students raised $1077!!!  They had a lot of fun "sliming" me on Friday!  Thank you to all who donated toonies and small change for this wonderful cause.

October 1 to October 5 is Read In Week!  This is a special week to celebrate literacy, one of our school goals this year.  Take time to read with your children, visit the public library or have them share stories from school.  Reading is an essential skill and fortunately our technology allows us to experience reading in many ways. We hope you can all join us for Love of Literacy night, this Wednesday at 6:00pm, as we will have many amazing reading strategies, activities and family suggestions ready for you to participate in with your child.
