April certainly has passed by quickly. We have had a number of exciting events this past month. We showcased the talents of our students at our spring production, “High School Musical… Junior”. The commitment of the students and staff was simply outstanding. Very Impressive! A special thank you to Miss Hafichuk, Miss Weiss, Miss Fabiano and Miss Riegel for their efforts!
Our school Badminton season has also drawn to a close. The students met with great success at the City Championships, finishing second overall in total aggregate. Congratulations and thanks to our coaches for their efforts!
School Council sponsored our St. Alphonsus Family Dance on April 30th, which was well attended and offered great opportunities for families to meet and mingle.
We had a number of presentations for our students, such as “Grupo America”, Emily Carr “Small Wonders” and a Science wonder, “Mr. Fish”.
Please join us at “Marian Liturgy” on Friday May 8th at 10:30am.
There will be no classes for students on May 15th, as it is a Professional Development Day for staff. May 18th is Victoria Day, which makes this an extra wonderful long weekend for families to enjoy.
Band camp for our Grade 8 and 9 students will run from Wednesday May 20th until Friday May 22nd.
May 27th will be our “Welcome to Kindergarten” evening for students and their parents who will be starting Kindergarten in September 2015. This will be starting at 6:30pm.
More information will be coming home regarding ticket sales to our Fine Arts Extravaganza when we gather to celebrate the talents of all our students in an extraordinary display of image, colour, movement and sound! This event will be hosted at the University of Calgary Rosza Centre on the evening of June 11th. Please follow the link to purchase tickets: http://www.ucalgary.ca/tickets. Please note that this is the first year we are selling tickets on line. Tickets will not be available at the school.
With respect to our Italian Language and Culture Program at the elementary level, Mrs. Loria will most likely be away until the end of the year. We have been fortunate to have Mrs. Marshall help us out for about 10 days. It is our hope to have a full time replacement for Mrs. Loria early next week.
All the Best!
Mike LeVangie, Principal
