Happy October St. Bernadette School Community!

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.  As a new principal, I am so thankful to the St. Bernadette School community; parents, staff and students, for welcoming me into your lives. 

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.  We have many exciting activities planned for our children this year that would not be possible without your support.  Our Parent Council is also looking for more parent volunteers, please consider joining the Council this year.  Our next meeting is scheduled for October 24th at 6:30pm and we have a fun night planned for children who require childcare.  Parent Council allows for parents to collaborate with us and plan wonderful opportunities for our children. 

With Hearts to Love and Hands to Serve, our students have already practiced our mission this year and collected funds to support Terry Fox's goal to find a cure for cancer.  Thank you to all who donated toonies and small change for this wonderful cause.

October 2 to October 6 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. 

Warm Blessings,

Sarah Mandolesi
