Thunder News Flash – June 29, 2019

  • Upcoming Changes to the Regional Education Committee (REC) for St. James & St. Ann's School

    This coming school year will see the makeup of our REC change to include St. Joseph’s, Mission and Sts. Joachim and Ann, Aldergrove.  This move into a truly regional elementary school means that the REC will now consist of two parishioners from each parish community for a total of 8 REC members.  If you are interested in learning more about becoming involved as an REC member for the 2019/2020 school year, please email the Nominating Committee by clicking here.  Elections will be held September 28th and 29th this coming Fall.

  • Opportunities For Parent Participation Hours

    We are looking for someone interested in repainting some of our Fun Night games.  This job can be completed over the summer.  If you need Parent Participation hours for this school year, we will consider extending the deadline for you.  Otherwise, the hours will count toward the 2019-2020 Parent Participation Program requirement.  If you are interested or need more information, please contact Nicola by clicking here.

    Are you looking to get a jumpstart on your Parent Participation hours for next year?  We are also looking for help with replacing the wooden border around the playground.  The work will take place on Saturday, July 13th from approximately 9:00am – 2:00pm.  Please click here to sign up.

  • Grey Matters Carnival

    Grey Matters Carnival is a fundraising event to raise awareness and money in support of people affected by brain cancer.  100% of the money raised will go towards The Brain Tumor Foundation and Balding for Dollars.  The Grey Matters Carnival will take place at Notre Dame Secondary, 2880 Venables St. in Vancouver on July 6th from 11:00am – 4:00pm.  There will be lots of food, carnival games and hair cutting!  If you are in Vancouver that day or are looking for something fun and worthwhile to do, please come out and show your support for this great cause.

  • Hospital Mass - June 30th

    The date of the monthly Hospital Mass was changed, and this month’s Mass will now take place on Sunday, June 30th at 4:00pm at the Sacred Space in the Abbotsford Hospital.  Any students wishing to read, please meet Mrs. Wakely at 3:45 at the Sacred Space.  This is a wonderful outreach opportunity for our students and their families.

  • Thank You

    This will be the last News Flash of the 2018-2019 school year, and we wanted to take this opportunity to express our thanks to all of you.  Thank you for the wonderful year we have had together.  If your family is leaving St. James & St. Ann’s School, we wish you well in the journey that life is placing before you.  If your family is returning next year, we look forward to seeing you again in September.  Thank you, as well, for your generosity towards all of the staff at the end of this year – your gifts, cards, and wishes for our summer mean so much to us.  We hope you all have a wonderful summer, and take some time to rest, relax, and make wonderful memories with your family.
