Principal's Message

Greetings SAB families!

This past week was full of great stuff - be sure to check out the photos in this newsletter of our Terry Fox Run, Astronomy class field trip, and more!

This week we have some more exciting happenings! This week we will have knowledge keeper Rob Davies with us on Tuesday, the 27th, to help raise a full size tipi in our school foyer as we focus this week on Truth and Reconciliation with Orange Shirt day on the 29th!

We also will be kicking off our student led STOMP (Students Together Moving to Prevent Tobacco Use) initiative to help stop vaping in youth!

Be sure not to miss our Parent Council Meeting on Monday at 6:30PM we hope to see you there.

Thank you for taking the time to read our newsletter!

Two beautiful quotes from our patron saint, St. Andre Bessette

St. Andre understood the spiritual reality that our loving God is closer to us and more attentive to us than we can possibly imagine. While we may feel far from God at times, St. Andre reminds us that God is with us! Check out these beautiful quotes from St. Andre that remind us of this!

“There is so little distance between heaven and earth that God always hears us. Nothing but a thin veil separates us from God.”

“When you say the Our Father, God’s ear is next to your lips.”

St. Andre Bessette, Pray for us!

We held our School Terry Fox Run last week

Astronomy Fun at the Telus World of Science!

Students got to try making code for a robot to move like the rovers do on the moon and mars. They saw the Apollo exhibit, took in a dome show and looked at the sun, moon, Venus and Arcturus at the Observatory.

Our Student Leadership group did some awesome teambuilding this week!

Fun with Filtration in Science!
