When I found out while at my CISVA teacher retreat on Friday that the SJB basketball tournament was cancelled I was so sad for you all! That was, of course, until I saw all the photos of you making fun towers out of cups!! (see below)

Your first Lit. Circle meeting went well today- I was delighted to see how easy it was for many of you to keep discussions going :)

This week will be much of the same fun stuff as last week. Please be reminded that Friday is a Pro-D so no school.

Happy New Year to you all! I know it was hard to get out of bed this morning, but I enjoyed catching up with you all :)

The trip to SJB high school in Abbotsford this Friday is sure to be fun! I am still awaiting a few forms- please submit ASAP so that I can arrange students into cars with parent drivers.
We will leave CCS at 9am and return approximately 3.30pm. Please dress in gym strip (unless you cannot play- all encourage to). Pizza lunch is kindly provided by SJB. Water bottles and snacks a good idea of course.

It is hard to believe that our last school day of 2017 has been and gone!

What a wonderful first half the year it has been. I am so thankful to get to work at C.C.S., a place where I feel at home and enjoy coming to work. Many are not as fortunate.

Thank you all so much for the generous gifts. I really appreciate them! Enjoy this special time "celebrating the greatest" as Father said at mass today.

See you all in the New Year!!

We look forward to starting Christmas concert rehearsals tmw!
I believe we sorted costumes for most of you already. If you are bringing a costume from home, please bring in tmw.

New consent forms (again...I know!) sent home for a field trip to SJB after Christmas for their gr.7 basketball tournament. We would appreciate getting those back before Christmas break.

Finally, we asked back in the spring that sponsor forms be submitted to either teacher or Precious Blood parish office before Christmas break. If you are still discerning who to ask to be your sponsor, take the time and prayer needed to do this. Otherwise, we ask that you start to get those forms in if you have not already done so.

It is going to be a great week! :)

Today I really feel so fortunate to have such a wonderful job. I was sooooo happy to be back with my class today after two days at home sick. I'm not sure many people are lucky enough to be glad to go back to work. I really appreciated how great my vocation as a teacher is today.

The fact that we spent two hours doing a wonderful Advent craft thanks to the Taylor's probably had a lot to do with it also!
