DISCOVERY PROGRAM OF CATHOLIC CHRISTIAN OUTREACH

Discovery program of Catholic Christian Outreach is a faith reflection process for small groups.  If you want to deepen your relationship with the Lord and with your neighbour come, join us.  The next meeting will be on Monday, February 15th at 9:00 a.m. in the rectory conference room just off the parking lot.  Coffee will be available!

ABSENTEE NOTICES & CALLS TO SCHOOL OFFICE

Due to the high number of student absentees, this is a good time to remind parents that it is the parents’ responsibility to send an absentee notice to school on the first day the child returns to school.  It is also the responsibility of the parent to contact the school office if their child will be absent from school.   We ask that you please keep your child home if they are sick until they are fully recovered as it is difficult to prevent sickness with other children.  

We also remind parents to send a note to the student’s teacher if a student will need to be dismissed early due to an appointment.  Numerous last minute calls from parents requesting their child be dismissed early have been occurring.  If your child will need to go to the After School Club, send a note to the teacher on the day attending.
