Congratulations to our Intermediate students who received the Sacrament of Confirmation this past Friday.  Many thanks to you the families, Mr. Herod and Father Ross Campbell for your guidance and support during the students’ preparation.   Special thanks to Bishop Miehm for bestowing them with this special sacrament!

 

Candy Grams! This year, we are selling candygrams!  Students are able to purchase a candygram – a red sucker with a personalized message- and send them to their friends at school.  All proceeds of candygrams will go to sponsor an athlete for the Ontario Special Olympics Spring Games that are happening in the Waterloo Region in May.  For more information about the Ontario Special Olympics,  click here.    Candygrams can be purchased through school cashonline and are only 5 for one dollar!  All candygrams will be delivered to the classrooms on Friday, February 14th.    Don’t forget to wear RED, WHITE or PINK on Friday!

 

 You’re invited!!  On Wednesday, February 19, 2020, Fr. Joseph de Viveiros C.R. will be celebrating Mass for staff, students and parents from the Waterloo Catholic District School Board. This celebration will bring a close to our Board’s Pastoral theme from this past year, Called to Belong. While our gathering at St. Anthony Daniel Parish will close one chapter, it will also give life to this coming year’s Pastoral theme, Gathered to Become.

Mass will be celebrated at 4:00 p.m. at St. Anthony Daniel Parish in Kitchener.  A reception in the Parish Life Centre will immediately follow Mass. We anticipate that each school community be represented at this upcoming celebration. We are inviting all staff members, and students along with their parents to join us for this celebration of faith.

 

Snowballs and Snow Creations:  We are asking for your help again this year in getting our students to understand that snowballs are not permitted. There are fewer things more dangerous than a snowball to the eye. While snowballs can be fun at home in one’s backyard, on a schoolyard with unassuming youngsters, a snowball is extremely dangerous, especially to the eye.

Parents, I need your help. Please sit down with your child and reinforce with them that Snowball throwing at school is NOT permitted and in fact is extremely dangerous. We take your child’s safety very seriously, and as much as we want our children to have fun in the snow, and there will be plenty of opportunities for fun in the snow, snowballs can NOT be part of that fun!  Please also talk to your child about respecting other students’ forts, snowmen, and other snow creations!  Thanks in advance for your help.
