WEEK OF APRIL 3 - 7

Hi Kindergarten Families,

The children returned back from Spring Break eager to begin Term 3! We can't believe it's already Term 3- time really does fly by when you're having a wonderful time! The students have come so far, and we look forward to watching them continue to grow in their final term together in Kindergarten. This week the children begin their "Spelling Challenges." Please be sure to check your child's homework folder for the full list.

As we begin the fifth week of Lent, the children continue to review Prayer, Faster and Almsgiving during this Lenten Season. Please continue to colour in one space in their 40-day lenten journey maps! We also encourage all students to try to attend morning Lenten Mass at 8:15 am.
