Where Each One Counts! 

Lord: In the midst of Winter, when the days are cold and wind can pierce remind us of the warmth of your love.
In the midst of Winter, when days are short, dawn comes late, and dusk arrives early remind us that in the darkness your light still shines.
In the midst of Winter, when the flowers of spring still lie hidden in the earth, when leaves are off the trees, and the world can seem bleak remind us that Easter is but a short time away.
And when in our lives we feel as if we are experiencing a season of winter, reach out to us with the power of your resurrection so that we may feel the warmth of your love and see your light that alone can take away the darkness of our soul.

The School Council Big Box Cards Fundraiser is underway. We sent home 100 sample boxes. We were able to distribute to families with the oldest child up to Grade 6/7. If any of the families with the oldest child in Grade ⅞ would like to see a sample box, please email the school or visit the Main Office. Once you are done with the box, either purchase it through cash online or return it to school as soon as possible. Our goal is one box per family.
