A big thank you to our Catholic Schools Advisory Council and other parents who came out for Shrove Tuesday and helped to serve our students with delicious pancakes! Your time and work was so appreciated by our students.  Also a big thank you to all of our families for your support in reducing single plastic use and garbage at our school.  This small little gesture of bringing in a reusable plate made a huge difference to our earth!  And finally, thanks to our Intermediate Student Council Representatives who also helped flip and serve pancakes for the entire school!  THANK YOU!
