Keynote address for parents (elementary, middle school, or high school)
When: Wednesday, April 11 at 7pm.
Duration: 60 minutes
Focus: Stress management and coping skills for parents and kids
All kids experience stress and anxiety. These emotions are part of being human, after all. But one in eight children experiences such a high level of anxiety that the child finds it difficult to manage at home or at school. In this thought-provoking presentation by Ann Douglas, a bestselling parent author who also struggles with anxiety herself, you’ll learn how to tell the difference between stress and anxiety (and why this matters); stress management skills for kids and adults; and anxiety management skills for kids and adults (what makes anxiety better, not worse).

Spirit Week

Dear St. Brigid Families,

The season of Advent is upon us and we wait in anticipation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus.

The Me to We is a student leadership club that is actively working to build awareness of issues around our community and the world. We are very excited to share in the activities and events they have planned:

o   The group has introduced a ‘Kindness Wall’ to promote peace and kindness in the school.

o   They have organized Spirit Week for the week before the Christmas Holidays. The schedule of events is listed below:

  • Monday December 18: Dress up as your favourite Christmas carol (non-uniform if dressed up)
  • Tuesday December 19: Pyjama day (Non-uniform if dressed in pyjamas)
  • Wednesday December 20: Dress up as your favourite Christmas movie character (Non-uniform day if dressed up)
  • Thursday December 21: Christmas sweater or shirt day (Uniform except for sweater or shirt)
  • Friday December 22: Red, green and white day (non-uniform day)

o   The group is also organizing ‘candy grams’ for our students. Included below is a letter directly from the Me to We students:

Dear Parents and Guardians:


The students in the Me to We club are organizing candy grams for students! They will be sold in the foyer, on the intermediate floor, and outside the library for $1 each, or 3 for $2. The sales will start on Monday, December 11 and will take place during first and lunch recesses. Sales will close on Wednesday, December 20 and candy grams will be delivered on the last day of school before the Christmas holidays.


They will be slightly different than past years, however. Everyone in the school will receive 1 large candy cane, along with a message from the club. Students will be purchasing messages to attach to the candy canes for friends, siblings, classmates and staff!


All proceeds from the messages will go directly to Street Haven Women’s shelter.


Remember your loonies and toonies! Let’s spread some Christmas Cheer!


Go St. Brigid Go!

As always we thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing many of you over the next two weeks at our various celebrations and events.

Happy Advent!

Advent Family Mass

Dear St. Brigid Families,
We would like to invite you all to our Advent Family Masses. This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate this hope-filled season together as a community. As in past years, it has been necessary to have two separate mass dates to accommodate the large numbers attending. Below you will find the schedule of which class will be singing or participating on the two dates. Please note: the same songs will be sung on both evenings. If your child is unable to participate in the selected evening for her/his class, they are invited and encouraged to attend and participate in the other evening with their Grade partners.
Both masses will begin at 7pm in the church.

Action Required by May 26: Italian Program & School-day Hours Survey

Dear St. Brigid School Community,

In a follow-up to last week’s meeting, we require your feedback on the important matters of the future of the Italian program, as well as the start and end times of the St. Brigid school-day.

This shorter day will affect the start or end of the school day, as well as the time that has historically been allocated for the Italian program.

It is very important that you voice your opinion through this short survey (see link below). A parent delegation will be presenting the results to the Board at their next meeting on May 31.

Please voice your opinion on St. Brigid School’s Italian program by Friday, May 26.

Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.
