Sharing in Learning Celebrations: We Love to Grow

The part of my day that I love the most is visiting classrooms, connecting with our students, and sharing in the joy of learning! In fourteen days of school, there have already been many learning milestones and celebrations. Thank-you to our staff for opening the doors to discovery.

This week I was visited by readers, thinkers, mathematicians, birthday babies, and social justice keepers. It is a privilege and pure joy to share in their faith and learning journeys each day at Saint John XXIII!

"Education begins the moment we see children as innately wise and capable beings. Only then can we play along in their world". -Vince Gowman

We Love to Read...Who was it? Who will it be?

This week, Mrs. Comartin was our Monday Assembly Mystery Reader. She was so excited to share a "teaser" of a story from our library about Alberta.

See if you can guess Monday's Mystery Reader...

Thank-you parents for modeling and helping our kids be safe by not crossing our parking lot. Use the path and sidewalks.
