God of power and mercy, open our hearts in welcome. Remove the things that hinder us from receiving Christ with joy, so that we may share His wisdom and become one with Him when He comes in glory, for He lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Thank you! (A Message from our CSC) 

Thank you to everyone that came out tonight to our Ugly Sweater Christmas Dance in support of our school Angel Tree Campaign. Together, with your generosity, we were able to raise a record amount that will help many families within our community over Christmas.

Thank you to all the families that stopped in and bought food, drinks and tickets. You are all amazing and we are lucky to have you as part of our school community.

Thank you to all the amazing volunteers (and volunteering grandparents) at our school that helped design and implement the evenings events. Without volunteers, none of our events would happen.

Thank you, thank you, thank you and Merry Christmas to all!

Remembrance Day 

Planning has begun on this year’s Remembrance Day service that will be held at the school on November 11. The Grade 4 students will be leading the service beginning at 10:45 a.m. in the gym. Everyone is welcome to attend.

As we have done for a number of years now, we would like to build a “Wall of Honour” to acknowledge family members who, as members of our Armed Forces, have served in the World Wars, other wars around the world, and in peacekeeping missions. We would very much like to include in our display family members currently active in military service.

NOTE: If you have contributed a name since this tradition started at St. Luke in 2004,the posters have been kept and will be used again. There is no need to submit the name again this year. If uncertain, feel free to have your child check with Miss Basten. 

If you have names that you would like to be added to this Honour Roll, please make note of as much of the following information as possible: the person’s name the relationship to the student (e.g. John and Susie Smith’s grandfather) the rank (e.g. Lieutenant) the person’s role while in service (e.g. Soldier in World War 2) any other interesting information (e.g. Landed on Juno Beach on D-Day) some students have provided a copy of a photograph of the person.

The information provided for each person will be published here at school on a separate sheet of paper and then posted in the hall leading to the gym in the days around Remembrance Day. Students, staff and visitors will be invited to spend some time after the service to look over the names and stories of these courageous men and women. 

If any member of the Honour Roll is available to attend our Remembrance Day service, we would be honoured to have them attend. Please let us know ahead of time who will attend and we will have a special welcome waiting for them.

Thank you for helping to keep the memories and sacrifices of the brave men and women of our military services alive in the hearts and minds of the children of today.


Sincerely,


Remembrance Day Planning Committee

For the past few weeks, it has been brought to our attention that there has been numerous conflicts among students during recess which revolve around these two items. Any personal items as such should remain at home, please. Please also note that staff are not responsible for personal items that are brought to school and/or are not responsible for lost or damaged items. We thank you in advance for your cooperation and support.

Halloween- Thursday, October 31st


Students are invited to wear their Halloween costumes to school on Thursday,

October 31st. Students are encouraged to bring a 2$ donation for our United Way

Fundraiser (Catholic Education Foundation). Thank you kindly in advance for your support.


A few requests in regards to Halloween costumes…


Please ensure that costumes are culturally sensitive. Please no masks or props, such as wands, swords, lightsabers, etc. Also, please understand that your child will be involved in a regular school day, so the costume needs to be able to withstand all regular school activities, including going to the washroom by him/herself and playing outdoors. We thank you for your cooperation. We certainly don’t want any disappointed children if the costume is ruined before they head out to trick-or-treat!
