SAFE Halloween at school
YES, we will be having HALLOWEEN this year. Friday, October 30th, is the day that staff and students will be dressing up and having a class party.
School Council, will be providing every child with a "Treat Bag"!
So please DO NOT send any extra food for the Halloween Party.
In order for this to go we have some very strict guidelines.
Whole School COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS: Please be cognizant of the costume your child wears to school to ensure handwashing and sanitizing use of the washroom with out assistance can still easily occur and that non-medical face masks can still be worn as needed throughout the day. We ask that costume accessories (i.e., shields, loose parts, full masks) NOT be sent to school to limit the number of items that will be touched and then sent back home at the end of the day.
This is not a regular year, please keep your child's costume simple. Especially for the younger students. Student will have to be able to use the washroom with their costumes on. SIMPLE< SIMPLE< SIMPLE is best.
Students are to come to school dressed in costume, they will wear them for the day.
We will NOT have a Halloween Parade this year.

New Classes for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion for Grade 2 students or older.
This includes classes for Parents and Children to attend together at the church, as well as scheduling dedicated study time together at home prior to reception of the Sacraments.
At OLPH First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion are usually offered when a child is grade 2 or older.
First Communion means that this will be the first time that a child is participating “fully” in the Mass by receiving the Eucharist.
Just like we begin every Mass by praying the Penitential (Act of Contrition) to prepare our hearts to receive Jesus in the Eucharist, First Reconciliation must be completed prior to First Holy Communion.
