  • Upcoming June Events

    June continues to be a very busy month with many activities and events planned.  Here is some information to help you plan for the remainder of the school year:

    Sports Day – Friday, June 14th:

    Parents are welcome to come and cheer on the students!

    Planning Day – Monday, June 17th:

    There will be no school for the students on Monday, June 17th, as the staff gathers to plan for the upcoming school year.

    Grab & Go Gratitude – Wednesday, June 19th:

    The school staff would like an opportunity to thank all of the parents for the amazing support you have given us during this school year.  From 8:00am – 8:30am we will be stationed in the Drop Off Lane, handing out coffee and homemade treats to all the parents – our small way to say that we appreciate everything you do for your children and all of us.  Just like a drive through, without the window!

    Grade 7 Farewell – Wednesday, June 19th:

    We will be celebrating our Grade 7 students with a special “farewell event” on Wednesday, June 19th, from 5:45pm – 8:30pm.  This evening is for the Grade 7 students and their families, and will begin with Mass at St. James Church, followed by a celebration in the gym.

    Step Up Day – Friday, June 21st –  1:00 – 2:00pm:

    Students who will be in Grades 1 – 7 next school year will have the opportunity to “step up” to their new grade for the afternoon.  This is always a wonderful opportunity for the students to learn a little bit about their future grade, meet next year’s teacher and participate in some fun activities.  A reminder that Grade 7’s will go home at noon on this day.

    Rag & Bag Day – Tuesday, June 25th:

    Each student is asked to come to school on June 25th with a rag and a sturdy bag.  They will use the rag to wash down their desk and chair, and help to clean up their classroom.  The bag will be used to pack up and bring home all of their belongings, as the school year comes to a close the next day.

    Last Day of School – Wednesday, June 26th:

    Wednesday, June 26th is the last day of school.  We will attend Mass as a school, and we invite parents to join us for this special celebration where we send off our Grade 7 students, ask our Grade 6 students to take over the leadership role at the school, and say goodbye to a number of staff members and families who are leaving the school.  After Mass we will go back to the school to watch our yearend slide show, and then the students return to their classrooms to collect their final Progress Reports.  It is always a bittersweet day at school, but we look forward to the many adventures that are to come!  Dismissal will be at 11:30.

  • Spirit Week – June 10 - 14th & Sports Day

    The Grade 7 Leadership Team has come up with some great ideas for the week of Sports Day.  Here is what that week of DRESS DOWN looks like (remember to keep outfits appropriate):

    • Monday, June10th – FREE DAY – come to school dressed in anything you like
    • Tuesday, June 11th – Cozy / PJ Day – wear your favourite PJ’s or comfy / cozy clothes
    • Wednesday, June 12th – Wacky Wednesday – come to school in your wackiest outfit or wacky hair and accessories
    • Thursday, June 13th – Sports / jersey day – wear something representing your favourite team or sport
    • Friday, June 14th – Tropical / beach wear with appropriate footwear for Sports Day
  • Work Bee - June 8th

    The next Work Bee will take place at the school today, Saturday, June 8th from 9:00am to 2:00pm. This is a great way to earn five hours towards your Parent Participation commitment. Please bring gloves for both indoor and outdoor work, as well as any small cordless garden tools that you have.  We are very grateful for all of your hard work around the school.

  • Mission in the North and Freezie Sales

    Bishop Hector (Bishop of Whitehorse Diocese) has asked for a group of parishioners to continue our Mission work to some of the Parishes in Northern B.C. A group from the lower mainland had begun this work long before Covid, and have now been invited back to continue the work that we began to strengthen community among the faithful and provide any support necessary to the Churches of the North. This initiative is supported by Archbishop Michael Miller and will give us an opportunity to work collectively to make a positive impact to support the Church of the North. Our main focus is with the First Nations people living in the area. We are asking that you support us through your prayers.  We will have freezie sales Mondays and Wednesdays after school 2:30 to 2:45 and the money raised will go directly to supporting the Missions to the Northern Church. It will also enable us to buy some of the building supplies that will be needed to complete some small maintenance projects at some of our Northern Churches. We will also be teaching and preparing adults and children for their sacraments.  Thank you in advance for your help. Mrs. Dos Santos and Mrs. Wakely.
