St. Francis High School presents “Teens and Teen Risk-Taking Behavior” Wednesday, December 2, 2015

Wonder why teenagers behave the way they do? Want to know why many teens are impulsive, why technology is so important, why their peers are so vital…and why do many parents feel their input is minimal at best? If you’ve answered yes to any or all of the these questions, we invite you to join us for this thought-provoking and valuable session:

The Mustard Seed and St. Brigid School Service Project “Warm Feet For the Street”

CCC’s Christmas Service Project for St. Brigid in Partnership with

The Mustard Seed – Warm Feet for the Street

What is The Mustard Seed?

The Mustard Seed is a Christian charitable organization that builds community, grows hope and supports change for people who are experiencing poverty and homelessness. It provides basic services – including meals, clothing and shelter – as well as long-term solutions and support services such as housing, employment, health & wellness, and spiritual guidance. The Mustard Seed has locations in Calgary and Edmonton.

How is St. Brigid going to help?

We are excited to announce our next service project – Warm Feet for the Street – beginning on November 23rd with a kick off presentation with a representative from the Mustard Seed. This project will extend until Dec. 11th when we will then happily donate our contributions to those facing poverty and homelessness.

Each grade level will be asked to generously contribute to this project by bringing in specific items to stuff into a warm pair of socks. We know that Calgary’s winter weather can be extreme, so it is our goal to stuff as many socks as possible for those who find themselves out of a home during the Christmas season.
The following is a breakdown of items that will be stuffed into the socks by our students:

Kindergarten and ESII Elem. – Travel size toothpaste and toothbrush

Grade 1 – Soap and a washcloth

Grade 2 – Travel size hand sanitizer and hand cream

Grade 3 – Small sized comb and brush

Grade 4 – Package of gum and hard candy

Grade 5 – Travel size mouthwash and floss

Grade 6 – Travel size deodorant and lip-chap

Grade 7 – Small package of razors

Grade 8 and ESII Jr. High – Socks

Grade 9 – Travel size shampoo and condition

Thanks to everybody for your support and contributions.

Transportation Fee 2015-16

  • The Transportation Fee for 2015-16 will be $270 per student, to a family maximum of $540 for a family of two children or more using yellow bus service. The fee also applies to Diverse Learning students who have special transportation arranged by the district.
  • The fee has been increased in order to bridge the increased difference between the government student transportation grants and the actual current cost of transporting students in the district.


  • UPDATED 2015-16 BUS ROUTES will be posted by MID-AUGUST to Click “Transportation” then “Schedules and Routes” then “School Name”. All routes for each school are in one document, so scroll down to find the route you’re looking for.
  • Parents and schools should check for their child’s bus route, stop location and stop time. It’s a good idea to practice with your child to be ready for the first day of school.
