December 2014

Dear Parents,
We will celebrate each week of Advent with a prayer service led by the grade eight class. Our students anticipate the celebration of Christ’s birth by lighting the candles on the Advent wreath that represent hope, peace, joy and love. As ‘Schools of Hope’ we try to help those around us during this Advent Season! How do we do this? Students, staff, parents and other volunteers continue to reach out to our brothers and sisters in need locally and internationally by filling 60 Operation Christmas Child boxes, filling food hampers for the Nish-nawbe-gamik Friendship Center , and by volunteering for the nutrition program at SHS or the School Council. As we go through the Advent season, let us remember to be thankful for all we have.

Thank you to volunteers in general who roll the milk money, help tie skates or help us at the rink in any way, support our curling program and join us on other outings. Ms. Parkinson’s class visited the shut-ins at the Extended Care building. Thanks also to Mr. Vinczeffy who set up a beautiful Christmas tree in our foyer and to Cathy Bowen for the lovely nativity scene. We are blessed to have such committed partners and teachers supporting Catholic education.

May God bless you all during this season of preparation, love and joy!
Yours in Christ,
Susan MacLellan
