Toonies for Terry Run at St. Mary’s Catholic School!
To commemorate Terry Fox’s inspirational Marathon of Hope, the students and staff of St. Mary’s Catholic School will be participating in
their 20th Annual Terry Fox School Run on Wednesday, September 24, 2014. This run offers us the opportunity to learn the many valuable lessons associated with Terry Fox’s short life, while at the same time, collecting funds to help find a cure for cancer. Once again, we are collecting Toonies for Terry. Please send in one toonie with your child to give to their classroom teacher.
Your continued support is greatly appreciated!!
Witnessing Christ Through Love and Service
Every year, our board chooses a theme to serve as an inspiration for our school and board office communities. The theme for the 2014- 2015 school year is Witnessing Christ through love and service. This theme serves to remind us that as witnesses to the loving acts of Jesus we must also strive to live like He did. We can do this through our acts of love and service as taught by the Gospels. This year we will make our theme come alive through actions that demonstrate who we are as followers of Jesus.

The amount of school traffic during drop off and pick up times, combined with possible exposure to dangerous driver behaviour can put children at risk. St. Mary’s School is designated as a ‘walking school’, stipulating children walk to and from school. Many parents choose to drive their child, however, encouraging students to be active by walking to school is better for their health and better for the environment. The reduction in cars in the school parking lot reduces the risk of accidents and children will be easier to see. Read more>
