Beginning today, our school joins all of the Catholic Schools in the province of Ontario in celebrating Catholic Education Week.  This is a time for us to reflect on our mission and celebrate our successes.  From Sunday, May 5th to Saturday, May 11th, events and activities will focus on this year’s theme which is “Living As Joyful Disciples.”  This is a challenge to us as well as an acknowledgment of the good things already happening in our lives as individuals and as Catholic school communities.


Over the course of this week of celebration of publicly funded Catholic Education in Ontario, we can look back on another year of sharing the Good News, another year of action for justice and peace, and another year of working together as a community of faith…


We look forward to some of the events that will take place this week.  We will have a Catholic Education/Crowning of Mary Mass on Tuesday at 12:45 pm in our St. Augustine Gym.  You are welcome to attend and bring flowers for our Mother, Mary. In addition we will have the Scholastic Book Fair starting on Monday in our library. Wednesday evening, we have a Welcome to Kindergarten open house and a meeting for parents of grade 6 students to talk about their up-coming trip to Paradise Lake.  You are invited to watch or read Bishop Crosby’ message –


Reminder.… we are continuing our school track and field practices this week for grades 4-8 to prepare for our school meet at Monsignor Doyle on May 17th.
