Junior High Open House and Kindergarten Registration
If you haven’t already seen the sign in front of the school, we are now accepting Kindergarten registration for the 2014-15 school year. Subsequently, as we prepare the next school year, we would like to invite all grade 6 students who are coming to FJW next year, to our JH open house at 7:00pm on March 20th.
Note from St. Philip’s Fine Art Program
Current enrolment projections for St. Philip School indicates the need to consider the implementation of a restricted enrolment process in order to ensure that future growth does not exceed the school’s capacity. It is important to note that the implementation of a restricted enrolment process will have no impact on Grade 1- 6 students currently attending the school. Resident (Catholic) Kindergarten students are also not impacted by this process. These restrictions will only apply to future students. Calgary Catholic School District will seek the input and advice of its community at a public participation meeting on Tuesday, March 18, 7 PM at St. Philip School. All parents interested in Fine Arts programming for their child(ren) are invited. (RSVP to St. Philip School: 403-500-2072)

Shoeboxes of Kindness
Mrs. Hovdebo’s class got an early start on the Christmas spirit as they prepared shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.
Operation Christmas Child provides an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple, hands-on project of Samaritan’s Purse that focuses on the true meaning of Christmas, God’s greatest gift.
