What's Happening This Week at Star of the Sea

Happy New Year! We hope everyone was blessed over the Christmas holidays and truly felt the love of Jesus in their houses. We are back at it now, and start a new year with excitement and new beginnings filled with hope. 

It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Mrs. Bernadette Deeley with our community. Mrs. Deeley was a vibrant member of the Star of the Sea staff who after a battle with cancer, passed peacefully this morning. We will remember her fondly at our planned school Mass scheduled for Friday, January 11th, 2019 at 9:00am at Good Shepherd Church. She will be gravely missed and we ask families to pray for her soul and for her family as they go through this incredibly challenging time.

If you aren’t able to attend the AGM and would like another family to pick up your package and tax receipt, we would need an email or written note to that effect prior to the meeting.  Thank you.

SIBLING REGISTRATION 2019 – LAST REQUEST
For those families that missed the opportunity before Christmas Break, we are trying to get an idea of the number of Kindergarten (and/or other grades) that will have new siblings entering the school in September 2019.  Please email the school office at school@sosschool.ca with the full name, date of birth and grade that the child will be entering in September.  Thank you to all families that have already replied.
