Dragon Update for June 11-15

Family Fun Night!

Get Ready Dragons!!! It’s been a great year and it’s time to celebrate! We hope you will join us for our end of the year Family Fun Night!!  It will take place on Wednesday, June 20th from 5:30-7:00 pm. Once again, we will be raffling off special baskets made up by our wonderful classes. Notes were sent home describing what theme your child’s class has. Please have all donation items into your child’s class by Friday, June 15th. We thank you again for your continued support. We’re looking forward to this fun-filled night!

Pilgrimage Cross

Earlier this school year, the Waterloo Catholic District School Board transitioned into our Pastoral Theme: “People of Faith” and a Pilgrimage Cross was created to honour this. This cross was blessed by Bishop Crosby and has been passed from school to school within the Waterloo Catholic District School Board. The students and staff of St. Dominic are very excited to embrace the pilgrimage cross that is set to arrive at our school this Friday June 15th.  The St. John school community will be passing the cross to our Grade 8 students from Mr. VanLooyen’s class. The cross will be carried through the streets leading to St. Dominic as a reminder and celebration of our Lord. During the following week, the cross will remain in our learning commons and classes will be invited to participate in reflective activities to show their faith. The cross will leave St. Dominic and make its way to the St. Mark school community.  Please come and visit the cross over the course of the week and ask your children about the meaning behind this wonderful journey!
