Gator Gab – Week at a Glance for Week #29 – Apr. 8th-12th, 2019

Below is a peak at some important information items followed by our Week ahead …

Thanks Police Constable Molnar – You Rock! 

Constable Rachel Molnar is our AWESOME School Police Resource Officer and she is a wonderful part of our school support team! She visits our school regularly to get to know the students and to speak to them (in March about Online Safety and understanding your personal digital footprint and choices) and to build relationships so as to be a proactive resource if ever needed. She stopped by this week to join our staff in our Staff vs. Gr. 8 Volleyball Game – it was great fun and as always, we were glad to have her on our team!

Confirmation

Congratulations to our Grade 7 students who celebrated their Confirmation this past weekend… the energy, excitement and pride felt by our students, families and church and school communities was AWESOME. Congratulations Gators on this BIG Moment in your faith life and being filled with the HOLY SPIRIT!
