Our lab gets upgrade!

We are very excited to share that St. Brigid has received a generous donation of seven used computers from an anonymous donor.

The computers will be delivered to the school early next week and will be available for students to use in our labs shortly after that. 

What an amazing way to kick off the new year!

Our thanks to the parents for asking, to their employer for saying yes and making this upgrade of technology possible for our St Brigid family.


Happy New Year!

Our calendar for January is posted here. Contact school office if you need it printed.
 

Dear St. Brigid Families,

As we have progressed through the season of Advent towards the great feast of the birth of Christ, we heard much from the Old Testament Prophet, Isaiah. He uses such expressions as “prepare...”, “Make ready...”, “Comfort...” and “Rejoice...” If we read through the chapters of this book in the Bible, we can readily see that the coming of Christ as our Saviour is an event of profound significance and one awaited with much anticipation. St. Brigid has been living that spirit of preparation throughout the season of Advent through the virtue of Charity. In the pages of this Newsletter you will read about how we have come together to raise funds and collect donations to support those less fortunate. A very special time made even more special due to the generosity of our community.

It was so beautiful to share our Advent family Masses with so many families and friends in our St. Brigid community. We would like to extend a special thank you to Father Carlos for his continued commitment to enhancing the spiritual life of our community. 

We would like to extend our appreciation to the staff and parents for your continued support and dedication to St. Brigid School. On behalf of the staff of the St. Brigid community we would like to extend to all of our families our wishes for a blessed and Merry Christmas. We wish you Peace and Joy in 2016.

Upcoming Events


 

PIZZA LUNCH TUESDAYS!!!

BIG NEWS

Our next pizza form will include an option for Dairy Free Cheese (Vegan Cheese). Pizza Nova is now able to offer this, and we are excited to bring this to our lactose intolerant and dairy allergic students.

We DO NOT sell pizza on the day of pizza lunch.

This year, every school student (JK-Gr 8) will have the opportunity to participate in pizza lunch every Tuesday. Our current pizza supplier is Pizza Nova.

We order as close as possible to the exact number of slices that have been ordered. There is NO "extra" pizza. Please do not send your student with money on the day of pizza lunch.  We only accept pre-paid orders.

  The order form is available in our "FORMS" section.

You are still welcome to order for upcoming weeks on the form, but we do not accept same day orders.

NO SAME DAY ORDERS!
