Pokemon Cards

Good Evening Guardian Nation

I hope this message finds you well. Just want to give a quick message regarding Pokemon Cards at Holy Family. Over the last few days, there has been an increase in the number of students bringing Pokemon Cards to school. This has created some unique challenges. Due to the popularity of these cards, groups of students are congregating too close together and not abiding by the social distance rule of staying 1 metre apart. Also, there has been a number of incidents where students are trading cards with each other. This is an issue as students should not be handling other students’ belongings right now. As well, some conflicts have arisen over trades that have taken place where someone feels that they have come out on the short end of the trade, and therefore a conflict ensues. To alleviate all of these issues, I am asking that all Pokemon Cards be left at home. Thanks in advance for your cooperation with this matter.

Feel free to contact me at the school if you have any questions.

Holy Family Update March 24

Good Morning Guardian Nation!

I hope this message finds you well and ready for spring. I am definitely ready for it! I wanted to bring a few items to your attention:

  1. From today until Holy Thursday we will run our Holy Family Lenten Food Drive! The class that brings in the most food, by weight, will win a pizza coupon for each student from Twice the Deal pizza! All of the items will be donated to the Wilmot Family Resource Centre. When deciding what to donate, please think about what would be needed in any kitchen or household. Items such as cereal, pasta, canned items are great, but are plentiful. Some items that get looked over are things like cooking oil, powdered milk, toiletries, personal hygiene products, baby food, diapers and wipes. Thanks for supporting those in our community who need our help and demonstrating the Lenten practice of Almsgiving.
  2. If your child is bus eligible and you have changed your mind about sending your child to and from school on the bus please complete the Do NOT Ride form below. It is really important that we have accurate seating plans for each bus. Please complete this form if your child will not be riding the bus for the remainder of the year. You can access this form HERE.
  3. Just a reminder about our Virtual Scholastic Book Sale that Mrs. Hehn is running until the end of this week. This is a great way to get some great books for your child(ren) and support the school library in the process. You can access the sale by clicking on the following link: Virtual Book Fair
  4. Busted Halo is a unique media resource that utilizes a relevant and accessible voice to help people understand the Catholic faith, put it into practice in their everyday lives, and share it with others. Due to the Covid pandemic, this resource is valuable to review with your family, especially during Lent. There are many great videos that are reflective and help bring our Catholic Faith into our homes. Please click on the following link for a quick video on Holy Week: Holy Week in 3 Minutes

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us at the school.
