Advent Christmas Video

We are so happy to announce that we will put an Advent Christmas Video together for you and your family.


Each class will do 2 items: Song and Poem, 2 Songs, A reading of a story. It will depend upon the teacher and students. They will decide.


On Monday, Dec. 14th, we ask that you send your kids to school in their Sunday best clothing and we will video record them singing. If you do not want your child recorded, please let your child's teacher know and we will keep them out of the recording.


We will send you the video link on Dec.18th.


For those Families that have not signed the FOIP form in PowerSchool, we cannot video your child to send out to the community. Please call the school for assistance if needed.


The link will be sent to you on Dec.18th. At the Christmas concert, we take a donation for Valeda House (which is apart of the Sign of Hope Campain - Stuff a Stocking). We are asking families to consider making a donation this Christmas to the Sign of Hope Campain. The link for this is below with specific instructions via Canada Helps.


The staff are so happy that we can keep the Christmas Spirit as a special part of Madonna School culture.
