Principal's Message

Dear St. Augustine Parents,

 

Our 50 days of Easter celebration continues as we begin the month of Mary. To extend our Easter celebration and this blessed month into your homes, may I suggest that you say a Hail Mary as part of your Grace Before Meals when you gather together as a family at the dinner table or encourage your children to include it in their daily prayers.  Can your family say a Hail Mary every day in the month of May?

I would like to express my gratitude for our entire community.  If I don't say it enough, THANK YOU!  Thank you for the grace and love and support and determination you have all shown over the last year.  Thank you, parents, students, teachers, education assistants, support staff, guardians, and caregivers!  You have been and continue to be amazing!   

The month of May is packed with many activities. Track & Field season is in full swing with practices every day and another track meet mid-month.  Thank you to all staff and parents who made badminton and rugby happen last month!  Grades 6 and 7 classes will have a full day of Outdoor Education at Camp Jubiliee this month, and our Kindergarten to Grade 5 classes will be celebrating "camp" activities back at the school!  We are blessed that restrictions have been lifted to the point where we can bring back all these pre-pandemic activities.  Stay tuned as your teachers and staff continue to plan and communicate what this penultimate month of the year will look like.

Happy Easter and wishing all mothers a very Happy Mothers’ Day, as well!  God bless!
