      Feb 11th Announcement

      – Bring Valentines day cards for everyone on Wed, Feb 12th (Optional). Students interested in this were given a class list to write other peers names. If you are bringing other treats, you may bring a non-food treat like a pencil and a bookmark and it must be bought for all 30 students in the class. Due to allergies in the class and school, no food related treats should be brought tomorrow. 

      • Love Thy Neighbour Day – Wednesday, February 12th – once a year across the globe we celebrate a special Pink Shirt/Anti-Bullying Day.  However, this year Pink Shirt day happens to fall on Ash Wednesday, so since every day should be anti-bullying day, we are going to move our celebration to Wednesday, February 12th.  Inspired by Catholic Schools Week, we are calling our day Love Thy Neighbour Day!  Since this is also the day that most classes will be celebrating Valentine’s Day, we are encouraging students to wear not only pink shirts, but any other colours that are Valentine’s colours – pink, purple or white as well.  While we don’t normally ask students to bring a donation for our dress down days, please see below for why this is an even more special day.  We will start our day with Hymn Sing at 8:45 and parents are welcome to attend – we will have a special focus on what it means to love our neighbours
      • Jeans Day to Support the RCAV Charities – Wednesday February 12th – to further celebrate what it means to be a part of the Catholic community in the Archdiocese of Vancouver, we will also be having our annual Jeans Day to support the charities that the Archdiocese supports on Wednesday, February 12th.  So, in combination with our Love Thy Neighbour/Valentine’s Dress Down Day, we are also asking the students to wear jeans and bring a loonie or toonie to help support these charities which include the Men’s Hostel, the Prison Ministry, Refugee Sponsorship, and The Door is Open.  Each year the Catholic Schools of the Vancouver Archdiocese are asked to hold a special fundraiser to help support these charities, and what better way to understand our connection to all Catholic schools across the Archdiocese than to hold this fundraiser during Catholic Schools Week.  So whether your child participates in just the Valentine’s dress down, or just the Jeans Day, or both, please contribute to help support the charities of the RCAV.
