The kick off to the NEW Jr. Crusaders' Program was a gym filled with enthusiastic coaches and tons of energy from a good mix of kids in Grades 4, 5, and 6.  The first sport offered in the program is Wall Handball. We currently have 4 seasoned coaches from the Calgary Handball Association helping us out!
 
Thank you to all the parents who support the program - the consensus from the kids was that "this a blast"!


Funds raised through our on-going bottle drive will go towards High School Trips.  It's an easy way to participate and support our students in their apostolic work! 

We have placed a storage shed near the doors at Harvey Hall (gymnasium). If you have any recyclable items to return for deposit, please drop them off to the storage shed that will be unlocked daily at 8:00 am. If at all possible, please make every effort to rinse out your items before putting them in the shed. Thank you for your donations!
