More specific Thank You’s for recent events:

Staff Lunch – June 21

On Friday, June 21st, we held our annual St Brigid Staff Appreciation Luncheon.  It was a smashing success! Thank you to all the food, drinks, and money contributions – we had a beautiful spread with ample amounts to serve everyone and more! 

We also said good bye and presented parting gifts to Mrs. Wakeham, Mrs. Cuthbert, Signora Cataldo, and Mr. Hogan on behalf of St. Brigid’s parent community. They’re going to be missed and we wish them all the best. All the staff were also given an herb plant for the summer. 

The teachers and staff genuinely expressed their sincere thanks and we wish you were all there to see it.  Your generous contribution made it all possible, thank you so much for your effort. 

Please see below for some photos of the event, and to see the awesome caricature of Mr. Hogan drawn by grade 8 parent Elaine P.  Thanks so much for doing that on short notice, Elaine!!
