It’s Time for our Spring Clean Up!

By on May 9, 2017

For many years now, we have hosted a Spring Clean Up. This is a chance to help keep our neighbourhood looking great. If everyone joins us even for an hour, it’s a simple task that shows we care about our community. The Spring Clean Up will take place from 10-11:30 a.m. To help out, just stop by the school to pick up a garbage bag and a map of an area that needs to be cleaned.

2017 Family Day Festival

By on February 9, 2017

IMG_8574r-1Please join us for our annual Family Day festivities on Monday, February 20th from Noon – 3:30 p.m.. We will have sleigh rides, refreshments, games and more! There is no cost to attend this event but we will be collecting donations to support the St. Albert Food Bank and Community Village. Please feel free to share the invitation with family and friends. We do need some volunteers, so please let us know if you can spare some time for your community.

We’re having a Fall Fair!

By on September 13, 2016

Over the past few years, we have seen the attendance dwindle at our Halloween Party. There are likely a few reasons for it: too many competing Halloween events, kids in the neighbourhood are getting older or perhaps an inability to find that perfect costume, we can’t be sure! So, we’ve decided it’s time for something new. We’re pleased to share that on Saturday, October 15th from 1-3 p.m. we will be hosting our first ever Fall Fair. We’re still working out some of the details, but expect a fun afternoon of games and activities for the family. We’ll let you know more as the details are confirmed!

Canada Day Pancake Breakfast

By on June 21, 2016

19360771176_ec24d0934f_zIt has become an annual tradition and we hope you will join us for our Canada Day Pancake Breakfast. This year’s event will take place from 9-11 a.m. near École la Mission. We will have food, fun and games for the whole family. The cost of breakfast is $4, and we’ll give you a $1 discount if you bring your own plates and utensils. We have limited seating available so it’s a good idea to bring along a lawn chair as well.

Events like these are a great community builder but they don’t run themselves! We are in need of 8-10 volunteers to help out on the day of the event. We will need help with setting up, serving, supervising games and take down at the end of the event. If you’d be willing to spare an hour or two to help out, please let us know. We love offering these events, but without volunteers, we simply won’t be able to keep doing so.

Hope to see you all there as we celebrate this great country of ours!
