December Events Calendar

Wow, it is incredible that we are already in the month of December!!
Students have participated in:

  • the Giving Tree project, bringing food items for those in need
  • Warm Feet for the Street, where much needed essential health items are needed for the homeless and the displaced
  • ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas Book Farewell’ buying books and dressing up as our favorite Christmas Character (more information to come next week)
  • Buying Candy Gram and delivering the Candy Canes
  • Advent Assemblies
  • Grade 7’s Mercy Messages
  • Watching our very own Elf on the Shelf and reporters reinforcing positive ways we can all keep healthy
  • and of course our Christmas Concert! (more information to come next week)

We had a busy and exciting month, where our staff and students participated in collaborative activities to bring them together virtually, reminding us that we are all a part of the school community and that we can always find to share and be a part of great things TOGETHER.

We would also like to thank all of our families for your support, your flexibility and your willingness to do everything you can to help us keep our school healthy and safe. We have never experienced anything like this before, and are really learning the meaning of the saying, “We are all in this Together…” Thank-you once again.
