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

It's official, we are half way through our school year! Since returning from Christmas, our students have shown how much they've grown and developed.  Take some time this month to celebrate all that your children have learned and accomplished and how much they have matured.  All students, from 100 Voices to grade 6, know the expectations and routines of our school and are becoming more engaged in meaningful learning activities and projects with greater confidence and skill. They are willing to take more risks and are thinking more critically as learners. It is so exciting to watch as they explore and investigate new ideas and concepts.  We are excited to begin this second half of the school year and continue to grow in our learning together. February Image.png

We hope all families enjoyed our culminating dance presentation on January 25th.  Mile Zero Dance instructors, Jeannie and Jordan, were so wonderful with all of our students.  We have so many fond memories from our time with them and our students were sad to see them go.  We hope to host them during our future flex sessions this year. 

During February, we look forward to many exciting events.  We will begin the month by raising funds for our upcoming social justice project, Feed the Hungry.  To support this worthy project, Candy Grams and Friendship Bracelets will go on sale beginning Friday, February 1st.   We are also exited to welcome the Pier 21 Musical and a concert by Michael Mangan, and are hosting our first ever Numeracy Night!  Please take some time to review our calendar as there are so many wonderful events this month at St. Bernadette.

In January, we started accepting applications for all grades, including 100 Voices and Kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year!  Please spread the word about St. Bernadette and invite your family and friends to register at our beautiful school.  Students who attend 100 Voices must be 3 years old on or before September 30th and turn 4 years old on or before December 31, 2019.  Full day Kindergarten is available for students who are 5 years old, on or before March 1, 2020. 

We are especially grateful for the MANY volunteer hours that are offered to our school, including our snack parents and our School Council. We encourage you to get involved in the coming year.  Please be sure to check the newsletter calendar as well as the website for important dates and events.
