We will be having our Thanksgiving Mass with Monsignor Muldoon on Thursday, October 6th, in the gym, at 10:10am. Parents are welcome to attend and celebrate with us.
Cross Country Running Meet
Mrs. Burke and Mme. Cacciotti will be bringing the members of our school Cross Country team to their meet on Wednesday, October 5th, at the Terry Fox Athletic Facility. We wish them the best of luck and we hope that everyone has a great run.
The St. Stephen Catholic School Council had their first meeting of the year, on Tuesday, September 27th and there was a great turnout. Congratulations to Lisa Lalonde, who was elected as Chair, and to Laura Turcotte, who was elected as Vice Chair. The next Council meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 18th, at 6:30pm.
Olympian Guest Speaker
We are very fortunate to have an Olympian visiting our school on Tuesday, October 4th. Martha McCabe, who swam the 200m Breaststroke in the Rio Olympics this year, and in London in 2012, will be talking to the Junior students (Grade 4-6) about her experiences and offering advice on how to set and achieve goals.
Terry Fox Run
We will be holding a Terry Fox Run for Grade 1-6 students during last block, on Thursday, October 6th. The Kindergarten students will be having their own run that day, during third block. All students are encouraged to bring $2.00 to make a donation to the Terry Fox Foundation.
A reminder that Friday, October 7th is a PD Day. We will see the students again on Tuesday, October 11th, as Monday is a holiday. We hope everyone enjoys a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends.
