PARENT PARTICIPATION

Just a friendly reminder to continually check your parent hours.  The requirement for the year is 40 hours.  Please, be on top of tracking your total to date.  There are many volunteer opportunities for which to sign up on the Parent Participation Portal. 

TRAFFIC SURVEY
 

As explained at the AGM and at last week's masses, we are conducting a traffic survey for both the church and the school to see what our travel routes are.  This is a joint survey  between our parish advisory committee ant the provincial Broadway Subway Project team, the City, and Translink to help us better understand the impact of the project during construction as well as once the project is completed and in operation.   The church survey was handed out at all masses this weekend.  The survey for school families will be sent out Monday, March 2. Thank you for respecting the deadline of THURSDAY, MARCH 5 to complete the survey.
