It is hard to believe that October is behind us already. Last month was a flurry of activity and there is so much to celebrate including our Thanksgiving liturgy, Orange Shirt Day, the civic election, Family Dance, and our costume dress-up day. In November, we look forward to our Remembrance Day Celebration on November 10th, progress reports and the upcoming interviews.
The entire school community wishes to express our sincerest appreciation to all of the parents and student for their spirit of giving this past month. During our recent Terry Fox run, students managed to raise over $650 for cancer research. This exceeded our previous year fundraising by almost $100 dollars. Equally successful was our recent Thanksgiving Weigh-Off and Food Drive where students literally collected a “ton of food” for our own St. Anthony’s Parish. Similarly, parents donated many of the vegetables that they ordered during our recent Farm to Table fundraiser to the Calgary Food Bank. The generosity of this community knows no limits.
On a final note, we are so proud of our Junior and Senior volleyball teams this year! All teams showed strength, agility and a great deal of skill on the courts this year. Continue to do your best and to make St. Augustine School community proud. Go Angels go!
Principal, St. Augustine Fine Arts School
