MOVE-A-THON: Last weekend to get Sponsors


This will be the last weekend to get sponsors for the Walk-A-Thon.  All monies and sponsors will have to be passed in by Thursday, November 20th.

The Move-A-Thon will take place in the school gym from November 20th to 28th. There will be lots of fun activities for students to be involved in.

Money raised in the past has provided us with: two IPad class sets- one for upstairs and one for downstairs. We have been able to purchase programs for the entire student body such as Brain Pop, Raz Kids and more. We also have our TV monitors upstairs and downstairs to display all the great things happening in our school.

We also have purchased gym supplies and art supplies. As well we bought reading material for our Guided Reading and Daily Five activities.

Please help us make this our biggest fundraiser yet. We have lots of great ideas to help facilitate with the learning of our students here at Holy Family.

Remembrance Day Ceremony

We would like to thank our grade 5 students and school band directed by Mr. Grandy for their participation in the Remembrance Day assembly, as well, all of their teachers for their leadership during the event. To listen to the children tell their stories, sing their songs and read poetry are always times to reflect and be thankful for our wonderful school community.

The grade three students were pleased to take part in Operation Christmas Child this year and they take great pride in filling their shoeboxes for children around the world. Teacher sponsor, Ms. Gullage, said, “Its a wonderful opportunity to teach children how to be global citizens and do good for children who are less fortunate this Christmas. They spent lots of time talking about world needs and world peace and what boys and girls would love to receive in other parts of the world. They certainly feel like they have done some small part to contribute to their world.”
