Update on our New School

December 21, 2018

Dear Parents and Families of St. Boniface School,

It has been some time since we have communicated information to you regarding your new school.  This has been one of the longest planning processes with which I have been involved!

Today I am happy to report that we are the proud owners of a new school site in Breslau.  The school site is located on the corner of Trowbridge Street and Starlight Avenue.

 

The highlighted area shows where the school site will be.  The school will be modeled after our newest school – St. Vincent de Paul in Cambridge, scaled to an appropriate size.  It will feature the latest in innovative school design, technology, new furniture and equipment intended to promote collaborative learning, as well as a childcare and an EarlyON family centre.

Planning and design are in progress, and we expect to begin construction mid-2019 with an opening date of September 2020.

We look forward to providing additional updates and pictures as construction begins.

Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Blessings on this wonderful Christmas season!

It is during these special times of the year that we are called upon to reflect on our many blessings and gifts.  When you think about it, the greatest gifts we have are the ones of time, love and family.  I would like to extend the warmest of wishes to you and your family as we begin our Christmas holidays.  I would also like to take time to thank the many wonderful “gifts” in our St. Boniface family: our staff, our parent volunteers and our parish connections.  Our staff works hard to ensure your son and/or daughter grow to be shining examples of God’s love in our world.  I am so very thankful for each and every one of them!  Our parent volunteers make extra events, such as our turkey dinner, even more special.  They work behind the scenes to make it all seem so easy. And, of course, our St. Boniface family would not be complete without Father Voisin and Diane from the church.  They ensure all of our students learn and grow in their Catholic faith.  What a blessing!  So enjoy the extra time with those you love and I look forward to seeing you all in 2019!

God bless you always,

Marylin Dawson

 

Reminder: Christmas Lunch Tomorrow

Just a reminder that tomorrow is our annual Christmas lunch, catered by the Golf’s Steakhouse. 

We ask that anyone attending bring their own utensils, reusable plate, napkin and a small container.

12 Days of Kindness

Our Faith In Action Team has initiated a fun Christmas idea to encourage KINDNESS over the next 12 days as we prepare for the holidays.

Why 12 Days of Kindness?

  • Advent is a time of waiting and preparing for Jesus’s birth.
  • One way we can prepare for Jesus is by acting like Jesus – doing kind things for others.
  • Doing kind things or helpful acts bring unexpected happiness to others.

Please take a look at the calendar link below to see what we have planned!

It’s that time of year again where Staff and Students will join together as a school community on Tuesday, December 18th and enjoy a Christmas Lunch.

We will be having turkey with all the fixings, catered in by Golfs Steak House. Please see Cash Online for more details.  Please complete your purchase by Friday December 14th so that we can provide the restaurant with our final numbers. We will not be able to accept any orders after this date.  We ask that anyone attending bring their own utensils, resealable plate, napkin and drink.

If you are able to volunteer to help serve the meal, please contact the office at 519 648 2832.  Thank you so much!
