Adoration Club starts up

It’s hard to believe: it’s October already and that Thanksgiving is just around the corner. There will be no school for students on Friday, Oct. 9 due to a professional development day for teachers and, of course, Monday, Oct. 12 is the Thanksgiving holiday.

Our school will be selling chocolates starting this week. This fundraiser subsidizes families for various activities throughout the school year as wells as assists in purchasing items for the school such as Physical Education equipment. Family, friends and neighbours can look forward to seeing students for yummy world’s finest chocolates!

Home reading programs are well underway now to encourage a love of reading in our students, and at our first monthly assembly, Terry Fox Run prizes and Building a Better World prizes were handed out. The Terry Fox T-shirt went to Cameron Ryan –Whynot and many others received extra bookmarks and tattoos.

Our theme this year, inspired by the renovations at our school, is Building a Better World. Students who are “caught being good” (thereby “building a better world”) receive tickets to go in a draw for prizes once a month.

Adoration Club started up last week on Oct. 2. We will be walking over to the Church every first Friday at 2:30 p.m. to spend an hour in adoration of our Lord Jesus Christ, singing and praying together and learning about how much He loves each and every one of us.

The cross-country team has been practising for the CARA meet. The run was held in Big Valley on Tuesday, Oct. 6.

Stay tuned!
