We have received the following from the Ottawa Mission...
A big thanks to you and your group of student and parent volunteers for the lunch donations today!
We serve an average of 1307 meals every day, so our kitchen is always busy. Having you help out the way you do saves our kitchen staff so much time, and makes things much nicer for our clients.
On behalf of all The Mission staff and clients, thank you for your support!
Tomorrow is Double Lunch Day for the Ottawa Mission. Please send an extra lunch if you can. They are very appreciated!
Did you know that National Sweater Day is a fun way to learn about the importance of saving energy and to inspire people to use less heat all winter. On February 2nd we will be celebrating National Sweater Day. The school will be a little cooler that day so everyone needs to wear a warm comfy sweater!
Our next meeting is this Wednesday at 7:00 pm. You can also find the agenda under the Catholic School Council Tab.
