Dear Parents and Guardians:
This year, in honour of Catholic Education Week, May 7th to May 11th, we will be holding events to celebrate student achievement in the arts and honour the love of reading.
Catholic Education Week celebrates the significant contribution that Catholic Education has made to the community, the province and to Canada. Our Catholic Graduate Expectations challenge students to articulate in society those fundamental values that underpin Catholic education. The theme for this year’s Catholic Education Week is, Catholic Education: Renewing the Promise/Renouveler la promesse.
Student Art Exhibition, May 10th-11th: Educators and students have worked together to create, select, and display pieces for public presentation. You are invited to this exhibition on Thursday, May 10th, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m and Friday, May 11th, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. as the exhibit will be open to students, staff, and the community.
Student Talent Show Grades 4-8, May 11th: Educators and students have worked together to curate and prepare a variety of acts that showcase the artistic and physical talents of our student body. Students will be attending this presentation at 1:00 pm Friday, May 11th. Parents are welcome to join as well.
Scholastic Book Fair, May 10th-11th: As in the past, the book fair will provide families the opportunity to peruse new releases, check out favourite series’, and scoop up all of the latest reading accessories. The bookfair will run from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Thursday, May 10th and 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m Friday, May 11th. Feel free to stop by.
