Welcome November St. Bernadette School Community!


As we end a lovely October, it seems that winter has come early!  I love snow and with it the coziness it blankets our city with. In November we celebrate two feast days in our church; November 1st is All Saints Day and November 2nd is All Souls Day.  All Saints Day is the day when we remember all those holy men, women and chldren who have gone before us ot heaven.  These saints, recognized by the church, are 'ordinary' people like you and I, and those in our family who led holy lives.  They all lived lives faithful to God and they are cheering for us who are still living.  All Souls Day is a day to remember our family and loved ones who have died.  We ask God to help us live with the hope that one day we will be re-united in heaven.  Finally, November 5th is Catholic Education Sunday, a day for celebrating how fortunate we are to have a publically funded Catholic Education System!  This day is a call to become informed, involved and proactive in the preservation of Catholic Education. november.jpg


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.  There are still many dates that require parent volunteers so please consider helping us out.  We have attached our calendar to this newsletter so you can stay up to date about our volunteer and snack schedule.  Our School Council (for parents) is also looking for more parent involvement, please consider joining the School Council or Fundraising Society this year.  Our next meeting is scheduled for November 14th at 6:30pm and we have a fun movie night planned for children who require childcare.  School Council and the Fundraising Society allows for parents to collaborate with the school team and plan wonderful opportunities for our children. 


Warm Blessings,
