Advent Liturgy

We will be having our second Advent liturgy on Monday, December 10th, in the gym at 2:30pm. Each Monday in December, we will be having a school Advent liturgy in the gym during last block. Thank you to Mrs. Mirabelli for organizing these liturgies.

Christmas Bazaar

On Thursday, December 6th many students purchased beautiful treasures, and possible Christmas gifts at the Christmas Bazaar in the school gym. Thanks to Ms. Jacka and Ms. Dillon for organizing this very successful event with our dedicated Grade 6 students. A total of $1265 was raised to help those in need.

Ski Trip Information

The information for ski trips on Wednesday, January 23rd and Wednesday, February 6th, for the Grade 4, 5 and 6 students, was sent home last week.

Christmas in Corkery Information

Our Christmas in Corkery community event will be held on Thursday, December 13th, from 4:45pm to 6:30pm. The highlight is always the performance, which will have a nativity theme and will be held on the outdoor stage from approximately 5:00pm to 6:30pm, but there are also many other exciting activities to experience.
Outside, there will be sleigh rides and a bonfire. Inside the gym, there will be seasonal music, artwork to admire and you can make a donation and get your picture taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus.
You will also be able to purchase food tickets for chili and pizza, and enjoy a hot chocolate. There will also be popcorn and a bake sale. Only cash will be accepted for any food purchases.
Of course, both inside and outside, you will be able to visit with friends and enjoy the company of members of the school community. The weather for this event can be unpredictable, but it will proceed as scheduled, rain (snow) or shine. As the performance and other portions of the evening will be held outside, all students and members of our school community should be dressed appropriately for the weather. All members of our community are encouraged to bring a donation for the West Carleton Food bank that evening as well.

Arise Youth Ballet Performance

On Tuesday, December 11th, Arise Youth Ballet will be performing “Dreams of Christmas” in the gym, at 2:30pm. Our students and staff are very fortunate to have the opportunity to see this talented group of dancers perform.
