St Leo Weekly Newsletter - week ending November 10th 2017

Hello St Leo Community!


Congratulations to our intermediate volleyball teams.  The volleyball tournaments were real nail biters! The boys fought hard and made some incredible plays to earn a spot in the finals, where they came in second behind St. Ambrose. The girls faced opponents who stood a whole foot taller, but what St. Leo lacked in size, it made up for in heart. The girls finished in third place.  Both teams should be very proud of their performance!  We are all proud too!


Thanks to Mlle. Hunter and Ms. Lehane for coaching the volleyball teams and to M. St. Pierre and Mme. Rego who supported the teams and coaches.
