FLU SEASON IS HERE!
As the weather has changed and we are now spending more time indoors, we again ask all parents to be aware of the Communicable Disease Protocols which are posted on our website: https://ourladyofsorrows.ca/site/wp-content/uploads/2022/10/Communicable-Disease-Protocols-2022-2023-1.pdf
Please keep sick children at home and continue to follow all VCH protocols and procedures for this flu season. Parents must be prepared for student pickup if your child is too sick to participate in school activities. Thank you for your diligence!
ALTAR SERVING PROGRAM
The altar serving program will be starting up in November. This is a great opportunity for students to join and be trained for altar serving at school and weekend Masses. Altar serving is an excellent opportunity for students to serve their parish as well as to take on a leadership role. Students can choose which Mass or Masses they can attend that work with your family schedule. Training will take place at lunch on Tuesday, November 8th and Tuesday, November 15th. Father Rosemond, Father Testamar and Ms. Guzzo will be visiting classes with notices on Wednesday, November 2nd. Altar serving is open to boys and girls in grades 3-7. Thank you for your support!
Krispy Kreme Doughnut Sale
The grade 7 fundraising committee is selling Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Place your orders by November the 8th. Orders will be picked up on November 18th after school. Don’t miss out on these delicious doughnuts. Order lots and freeze them for the upcoming holiday season! Thank you for your support. Krispy Kreme order form link
The grade 7 fundraising committee is collecting bottles again this year. It’s easy! Simply place your empties in clear bags and drop them off at any “Return-It Express” depot (link to locations here). The school’s account is under our main phone number – 604-253-2434.
