Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s),

Happy New Year! 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas Break.  May we continue to spread the Christmas Spirit and good news of God’s presence to others by our words and actions in the New Year. 

I’m in awe of the gifts and talents that your children share with us daily and our dedicated staff who are committed to doing their best. We ended the year with seven amazing Christmas concerts that put the ‘Christ’ back in Christmas. Thank you to Ms. Wyndels who volunteered to accompany the junior play with her musical talents. Pastor Smith, we thank you for donating your time and equipment so that the students could be heard. Thank you to Anita McDonald for organizing the Christmas pageant at the Christmas Eve Mass. We thank all our volunteers who donate their time behind the scenes to clean up or support programs within the school. Thank you to all of you for helping others in our community. This year, over 1000 food items were donated to The Friendship Centre for the needy.  Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Our school improvement goal is about helping students persevere when applying their math knowledge to solve problems. Studies have shown that when students are challenged to apply their thinking and knowledge to complex math problems, it results in greater understanding of key math ideas.  Regular attendance also will support your child’s confidence and academic growth.  Working in partnership with staff and having high expectations for your child will promote their success.

Our Grade Two students are preparing for Reconciliation and First Communion (the second and third of the sacraments).  Thank you to Mrs. Winstanley and Mr. Esposito for coordinating meetings with Father Mike, parents and guardians. 

Ms. Trottier and Ms. Fontana will start our year off on a joyous note with the first School Mass on January 12th. Through song, prayer and readings the students will lead us in a truly faith-filled, community celebration focusing on relationship building and use of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Working in partnership with you,

Mrs. S. MacLellan

Principal of Sacred Heart School
