Blessings Haller Hawk Families,

This week marks the most incredible week of the year for Catholics all around the world ~ Holy Week!  What an emotional week this will be: beginning with the preparation of Holy Thursday, the deep despair of Good Friday, the moments of waiting through Saturday and the joyous explosion of Easter Sunday.

We travel together, as Christians, through this week, learning from Jesus’ Passion, Death and Resurrection that new life can spring forth from death, we can find meaning in tough times and there really is a light calling us through times of great darkness. Bring Holy Week to life within your own lives!

Thank you to Miss Steven’s and Mrs. Mikuljan’s classes for preparing our hearts for Easter with the Stations of the Cross presentation this coming week.  Mrs. Gaiger and Mrs. Rutledge’s classes will be helping to lead our Easter Mass at Blessed Sacrament Church on Tuesday May 7th.  Mass is at 10:15 am, please join us for mass if you are able.


Families:  School Council is pleased to bring back our annual SPRING FUNDRAISER asking families for support with our MAD SCIENCE DAY through the purchase of Vesey Bulbs and/or Stemmler’s Pepperettes.

Packages were sent home this past week.  Please ask your child to show it to you and ask friends, family or neighbours if they are interested in bulbs or Pepperettes.

The fundraiser will run until April 23rd.  Vesey’s can be ordered online on schoolcash!

Thank you for your support!


Reminder:  A reminder that the school parking lot is closed from 8:15am-4:00pm each day.  The parking spots are reserved for staff only.  Parents/grandparents may not drop off or pick up as these are our busiest times with kids walking across the sidewalk and through the lot.  Moving vehicles create an extremely unsafe environment for our children. Parking is available on Shea and Laurentian.
