Principal’s Welcome!

Welcome to
St. Alphonsus School!

Our Grade 6's Grow in the Image and Likeness of God!

 

As you are aware there will be no school for students Friday, October 31st as the St. Alphonsus staff will be attending District “Faith Day”. Just a reminder as well, there will be no school for students on November 10th and 11th. On November 10th, staff will be attending District Professional Development sessions throughout the District and here at St. Alphonsus. On November 11th we recognize Remembrance Day, please engage in family discussions as to the importance of this day.

Please feel free to join us on November 7th at 10:30am for our Remembrance Day Liturgy as our Grade ½ and our Grade 7 Pacentrilli T.A. will be responsible for this Liturgy.

I would like to thank all families for their support with several requests that we have made of you this past month. We will continue to lock the front door at 4pm during the week; we do make an exception on days when our school teams have home games. We will continue to have parents drop off and pick up their children from the most westerly front door for those who attend “Child’s Play”. Child’s Play can be reached via telephone at 403 583 6151. Please remember, that the school parking lot is for staff and District personal only, it is not to be used to turn around or drop off your children. Lastly, I strongly encourage you to be mindful of the expectation to park at least 5 metres from all crosswalks. A large number of students use the crosswalk in front of the school both morning and afternoon so please monitor your speed as well. Again, your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Our girls’ Volleyball team will be playing for the city championship this evening at Bishop Grandin… Best of Luck girls!!

Wrestling tryouts and practices are in full swing. A special thank you to all those supporting the participants in this sport.

As I have mentioned, in past literature sent home, we recently had to dismantle our old computer lab and have purchased new “Chromeboxes”. It is our hope to have our new lab up and operating within the next couple weeks.

We have recently sent home information for two major fundraisers; our Poinsettia fundraiser and Christmas Gift catalogues. Funds from these fundraisers will, in part, support our new IT lab. Please consider these options when planning for the Christmas season.

To clarify any confusion, our Christmas catalogue needs to be returned by November 5th, 2014 and the Poinsettia orders by November 17th 2014. All the Best!
