It's amazing to think that we are halfway through the school year. With that being said, there is a lot more learning to do and fun to be had! We are sad to announce that our wonderful librarian Mrs. Landry is retiring on the last day before the February break. Mrs. Landry has been at Holy Family for 23 years and our librarian for the last 13 of those years. As a farewell party we invite all families out to our Family Literacy Night on February 8th, to celebrate Mrs. Landry’s love of reading and being able to encourage this in our students. We will miss Mrs. Landry deeply; however, we are happy for her to start her new journey in retirement.

February is a busy month. We will highlight some key things happening, but please look at the February calendar. This is always a busy month filled with fun activities for students, but also the time we show our appreciation for our staff. Staff appreciation week is February 13-17 and the theme this year is “Champions of Learning”. We encourage our families to reach out and express your appreciation for any staff that have been a “champion” for your child. Finally, the week of February 20-24 is a break from school. We hope you get the opportunity to enjoy time with your family. May God bless you this month and show you his love in many ways.

Yours in Christ,

Mrs. Combres & Mrs. Weber

We ask that parents use the street to park their vehicles. Parking lots are for staff only. This is a safety concern and therefore we ask that parents do not park in the parking lots designated for the staff. Thank you for your cooperation.

Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week

Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week is February 12-18. This is a perfect opportunity to send a note of thanks or discuss with your children, the importance of having caring teachers and staff who truly care about your children and the education they receive.

Congratulations to all of our students who have enrolled into their sacramental preparation program! We pray that as you journey in your faith you will grow in your relationship with your community and with God.

School Lunches

Just a friendly reminder to please ensure your child has healthy options in their lunch. Please refrain from packing pop and energy drinks as these should not be consumed on regular school days. Please remember that Holy Family School is a nut alert school. We also have students with allergies to shellfish. Please do not send food that contain NUTS or FISH. Thank you.

Academic Committee

Hello little geniuses,

This month we will be celebrating World Read Aloud day so spend time reading with loved ones today. Our classes will also be pairing up to read with one another.

Also, on February 10th we will be having a winter festival to celebrate a long standing winter carnival that happens in Quebec every year. Classes will get to use snowshoes (kindly donated by the Battlefords Wildlife Federation), sleds, build snow sculptures and learn about some eastern Canadian traditions. There have been many activities provided, such as creating a winter prayer, so teachers can include this event in their classroom instruction.

We will also be doing some more fun student surveys around Valentine's Day on the topic of things we LOVE and displaying them using circle graphs this time. Students will also be spreading the love by making bookmarks for students in other classes.

Just a heads up, that we will be having a Dr.Seuss day on March 2nd (the birthday of author Theodor Seuss Geisel). Start thinking about a costume you can wear for that day.

Have a great month everyone and keep on striving to learn something new everyday!!

Morning Arrival

Parents are asked to NOT send your child to school before 8:30am. We want your children to be safe and there are no teachers on supervision until 8:30. All students may arrive then to play until the entrance bell at 8:50. All students, including kindergarten students, should be outside playing while waiting for the bell to ring. Students should line up at their own doors once the bells ring. We ask that students enter and exit the school through their own doors to keep tight cohorts and minimize exposure to other people and areas within the school.
