Week 4 -- Parent Bulletin (2019/20)
Published on Sep 29, 2019 20:45

Hello Everyone,

The month of September has come and gone, and our students are busy working hard and following classroom and school routines nicely.  Friendships are being developed in all the classes and its nice to see students engaged in their learning. Now we say hello to the month of October, which will bring many new and exciting learning experiences along with the cool and crisp days.

In 2013, the annual Orange Shirt Day campaign began after Phyllis Webstad shared her story at a reunion with other survivors.  Today, the students at St. Teresa of Calcutta School are showing their support for Phyllis and the residential school survivors by wearing orange.  Phyllis was a young girl who was not allowed to wear her orange shirt, so we wear ours today to show that EVERY CHILD MATTERS.

Last Week Recap:

Father Joshua and Ray Ritezel from Holy Martyrs of Japan Church stopped by to speak to our Gr. 6-8 students about the Edge Program.  EDGE is a fun, exciting and free program that offers youth the opportunity to grow in faith and fellowship with other youth and peer leaders. Hope to see you there on Mondays 7:00 - 8:30 Parish Hall.

Mrs. Newman


God of every people and nation,
who cherishes each of your children
in their uniqueness, goodness and beauty:

we ask your blessing and your comfort today
for all those whose hearts are aching, and whose families are broken,
because of the tragic events that took place in Canada’s residential schools.

Hold close to your heart those who died far too young,
and console those who must still grapple
with other types of emotional and cultural loss.

Give us courage and wisdom to build a different and better future,
and show us the path toward healing and hope.
We ask this in the name of Jesus, our Healer and our Friend.
