Walking Forward Together


Catholic Education Week is May 1st through to the 5th and we have many activities and special events happening next week.



Education Week Liturgy

Monday, May 1st at 2:35 pm in the gymnasium, we will have our Education Week Liturgy which you are welcome to attend. We will be presenting a cheque to the OK Clean Water Project and recognizing students who have demonstrated the gospel values of love and faith.


Open House

On Wednesday, May 3rd, beginning at 8:30 am, we will be hosting our annual Open House.

Coffee will be available at a number of stations around the school. We ask you to Lug a Mug with you or use one our our compostable cups to enjoy your morning cup of coffee.  There is water available all around the school.

We’re asking each family to bring in some muffins or pastries to share with the community. These can be left on any one of the tables set up to receive these delicious treats.  Please note: we are a nut-free school and a number of our students do have nut allergies.

Following our opening exercises at 9:15, we will be having our Morning Fit Break which you are welcome to dance along to and then you are invited to the gym to see our two dance teams perform the numbers they will be presenting at the Dance Showcase.

Following the performances, our Open House concludes and our grade teams participate in Career Day presentations during Block One.


Parking during Open House

The gates to the paved school yard will be open and accessible through the staff parking lot. We ask that you not park in the staff parking as we have just enough spots to accommodate our staff.  Also, please follow the directions of the staff who will assist you in parking. Children will be entering the school directly either with you when you arrive, as walkers (or riders), or off of the buses. The yard will be closed to students until first recess.

If you are parking in the yard, we ask you to exit during Block One. All vehicles must be out of the yard by 10:20 so that we may open it for recess play at 10:30.


Walking Thursday

Thursday is the day we highlight Healthy, Active Living. We encourage those who can to walk, ride, run or roll to school.   


Friday Is Green Day

Pack a litterless lunch and help us repeat our Gold Eco School Status this year. (Of course, we have been doing dozens of Eco friendly activities and practices all year, and this is another green practice we can do!)


Movie Night

Join us for a School Council family movie night in the Gym at 6:30. More details to come.
