2nd Sunday of Advent

The Second Sunday of Advent is the Peace Candle also known as the Bethlehem candle


The second Sunday of Advent gives us the opportunity to reflect on Psalm 46:10-11 which says:...Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.”

This week, we pause to remember who God is and what He has done for us.

Grab n Go Breakfast Program


The first week of the Grab n Go Breakfast has been a success. Students ate most of the food that was purchased.


There will be food items for students, every morning in the boot rooms on a cart. If students are hungry, they are very welcome to help themselves to 2 items.


The items will be easy to eat and nutritious. Yogurt Tubes, Cheese Strings, granola bars, small oranges or bananas.


All children can have up to 2 items.


Please note that it is always most important that your child has breakfast at home first.


This program is funded by donations. We currently have received a $1000 donation from Walmart.

THANK YOU TO THE GRADE 4'S in 3/4G for bringing the carts to the boot rooms and managing them. Thank you Mrs Gauthier for filling the carts and helping your students be successful in this very important task.
