This year, we’re fundraising to help pay for the new construction. We’re asking each student to bring in $60 in pledges and have a school goal of $40,000.
The first 150 students who bring in their minimum donation will receive a t-shirt with the winning design by Grade 11 student Chelsea D.
Prizes will go to our top fundraisers and include items such as the new iPad mini, X-Box One, noise-cancelling headphones, iPod touch, Metrotown/Cineplex/Best Buy gift cards, and ND wear.
Students are to bring their pledges to their B block teachers and needn’t wait until they’ve collected everything; they can bring it in as they accumulate it. Names are entered into weekly draws for prizes of Subway cards or ND wear.
The class that has the highest average of donations per student will receive a pizza lunch.
The Walkathon will take place along the Stanley Park seawall and will end at Science World. Weather permitting, students will receive refreshments there (pizza and pop) before being directed to a bus to return to school. Students in Grades 10-12 may be dismissed at Science World if they choose; students in Grades 8 and 9 need a note from home in order to be dismissed at Science World.
Lent, as you know, is a season of renewal, a season of hope and new life. It is a time when many of us try to make sacrifices and promises as part of our faith commitment. Ideally, those sacrifices and promises will serve us, and those directly and indirectly affected by them, well beyond the Easter season. So, when Lent concludes with the most important weekend in our Church’s calendar, the Easter Triduum, hopefully our lives and our relationships will be both positively and profoundly changed forever.
On behalf of our entire school community, Happy Easter to you and yours, and may the good Lord continue to bless you in your ministry as parents and caregivers.
