Spreading Christmas goodwill ...

The Sacred Heart community is so proud of Anthony, a student from Mrs. Bratt's gr. 5 class. A few days ago, Ms. Lo Faso received an email explaining how Anthony quietly shoveled driveways when we had the heavy snowfall. He went from house to house on his street, clearing the way for neighbours to be able to walk safely to and from their homes. When approached to be paid, Anthony politely declined. He wanted nothing in return for his kindness and hard work. 

Thank you for being a great role model, Anthony. Your good deeds exemplify the true meaning of Christmas.

Caught you doing good ....

Last Friday, Mrs. Donofrio's class attended mass at Sacred Heart Church. As they walked in, they handed our community members handmade poinsettias to spread Christmas cheer. We received a beautiful letter from one parishioner who was touched by the gesture. Her letter included:

"My poinsettia is now on my Christmas tree at my house and I say a prayer for all the kind children (maybe elves) who worked so hard to make people have a special Christmas. Thank you so much."

Thanks to Mrs. Donofrio and her special elves, who touched the hearts of others during this Holy Season.

Bullying Prevention and Intervention Week

    Bullying Prevention and Intervention Week 
      November 20 - 24, 2017

       Respect yourself, each other and your community ---- 
bullying just won't stand a chance!
Take a peak at some of the events that took place to enforce a 
positive school learning climate....

A Public Service Message created by Mrs. Bazinski's Grade 7s.

A NEW Cardinal Spirit Chant was written and shared to the whole school by Miss Donofrio's Grade 3/4 class

(echo chant - echo after each line)

We are the Cardinals don’t you know
Red black and white are our colours that glow
Jesus taught us to lead from the heart
We follow in His footsteps from the start
We try to include, not exclude,
If we did, that’d be rude
We are unique creations of God
United we stand as a Catholic squad
We are the Cardinals don’t you know
Forever we’ll fly and continue to grow

A movie with highlights from the Fall Term...
