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

As we end a lovely October, we are so blessed that the fall weather has allowed us to enjoy the colours and scents of autumn.

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 children who have gone before us to 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.  November 3rd 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. 

As always, we want to take this opportunity to thank all parents and caregivers 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 partners in your child's education, and we value the ongoing relationship we have in ensuring success for all.  It truly takes a village!

Our School Council and Fundraising Society is always looking for more parent involvement; please consider joining the School Council or Fundraising Society this year.  Our next meeting is scheduled for November 12th at 6:00pm in the school staff room.  The School Council and Fundraising Society allow for parents to collaborate with the school team and plan wonderful opportunities for our children.  Please consider joining us for this worthwhile cause!
