March has certainly passed by quickly, as we move into April, I would like to remind everyone that we will begin our Easter Break on Thursday April 2nd at 11:30am. On behalf of the St. Alphonsus Staff I would like to wish everyone a safe, and peaceful Easter Holiday.
We would also like to thank everyone who supported our School Council Spring Fundraiser. Perogies can be picked up on Thursday April 2nd from 10 am until 12 noon. Please make every effort to make arrangements to receive your perogies during this time. Please look for new and exciting announcements coming from School Council in the future.
Our Grade 7 Band students had a great month. They attended Band Camp in Banff and all their hard work paid off as they received a “Superior” grade in the Alberta International Band Festival. Congratulations!
Our Grade 1 and 2 students made a trip to the Glenbow for an educational journey in Social Studies, visiting the Maverick and Inuit Galleries. Our Grade 5 and 6 classes went to COP for a fun filled day packed with Skiing and Hot Chocolate. All the students had wonderful experiences.
Our Junior High students went to Cardel Place on March 6th, for an Activity Day. We hosted our annual Day in the Life program for perspective Grade 7 students for the fall of 2015. The day was a huge success as the students had a wonderful experience which ended with a finale performance. If you know of anyone interested in attending our Junior High for Fine Arts, please encourage parents to contact our office. We are currently booking interviews for the 2015/16 school year.
We return to school on Monday April 13th, 2015 at 8:30am.
All the Best!
Mike LeVangie, Principal
