Remembrance Day Ceremony - Nov. 5th

For Remembrance Day this week, STMY is planning on celebrating those family members from our school community who have served our country. If you have had someone from the past or is currently serving in the military, Mr. Kobelsky would love for you to email him (markk@eics.ab.ca) a picture of them and a short paragraph explaining their service. He is planning on putting together a slideshow to honour those who have given their lives in service of the freedom of others.


Greater love has no one than this, that a person will lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13
