April 19th Newsletter

Hello St Leo Community,

 

I hope everyone had a Happy Easter and is enjoying this long Easter weekend!

 

Attention all St Leo Junior Volleyball players and associated coaches and all St Leo Hockey players and associated coaches.  There will be a pizza party for you at lunch on Friday April 26th.  No need for the players or coaches to bring a lunch that day.

 

The two most important things you need to know this week:

  1. The Annual St Leo Silent Auction and Parent night is on Friday April 26th at 7:30 p.m. at the Maple Leaf on Lakeshore.  This is our most important fundraiser of the year.  You can purchase tickets on line or by sending the attached form back to school with your child.  Please note if you have purchased your tickets on line, you will be on the list at the door.  You will not receive hard copy tickets.  Please come out and support your children’s school.  It is through the auction that we are able to purchase technology, subsidize field trips and provide supplies to our teachers.  We need your support.  See you on Friday evening!  There are a lot of great deals on summer camps, family activities and sporting events to be had.  It will be a fun evening for all.

  2. We are still in need of a number of volunteers for the book fair.  If you are able to give us some time during the day the week of May 6th, please consider signing up for a time slot noted below.  Please respond ASAP to the email if you can volunteer. Thank you to those who have already put their name forward.
