Greetings from the Regina Catholic School Division Board of Trustees!
We would like to send our gratitude for all who are speaking up to promote Catholic education in our province. We are truly blessed by your support. We most graciously accept your conversations, as well as your generous donations to the Saskatchewan Catholic School Boards Association's fundraising campaign. More information is available online at https://www.catholicedspirit.ca.
This month, we welcome our new Student Trustees to our Public Board Meeting on February 5th. These students represent our high schools, and bring a fresh voice and perspective to the Board table. They have been busy preparing over the last couple of months for their first Board meeting; and we are looking forward to having them as representatives of the student body. We wish all our high school students every success during Semester Two and this last half of our school year.
Monday, February 5, 2018 is also the date of our Annual Electors' Meeting, and all those who vote for Regina Catholic School Division Trustees are welcome. Please join us at 7:00 pm in the Gratton Room, 3120 – 14th Avenue.
With an early start to Lent this year, we have just a couple of weeks before we begin the Lenten journey of reflection. We invite you all to participate in the journey with your children, at school liturgies, prayer at home, and Mass at our Parishes. This is a special time in the church calendar, and an important time for growth and learning.
Along with Ash Wednesday and the start Lent, February also brings us some time to celebrate families. Leading up to family day and winter break, dates to remember are:
Friday, February 16 – Teachers' Convention - No School for students
Monday, February 19 - Family Day holiday
Tuesday, February 20 – Friday, February 23 - Winter break, no school for students
Monday, February 26 – Classes resume
We wish all our students and families some special time together during the February break and a prayerful, reflective Lenten season.
"Lent comes providentially to reawaken us, to shake us from our lethargy."
