I begin my thoughts with a passage of scripture from the gospel of John, chapter 1 verses 6 to 8. “There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. He himself was not the light, but he came to testify to the light.” My hope for all of us during this season of Advent is that peace may be evident in our hearts, our lives and our community.
In this edition of our parent newsletter we have shared just a few of the many inspiring stories of students that could be told. You will find information about events happening at school by visiting our school’s website.
Today I congratulated our varsity volleyball players who qualified for the Provincial “Final Four” that will be played at the University of Manitoba in the last week in November. I wish to thank the many volleyball coaches for their dedicated coaching of our student athletes.
I hope that you have the dates of our Christmas Concerts on your calendar. The grade 9 -12 concert is on December 10th and the Middle School Concert is on December 17th. Please take advantage of the opportunity to purchase Christmas cookies at these events as our grade 12 class will be selling cookies to raise money for their graduation activities.
The November Parent Advisory Council meeting was well attended. The focus of the evening was a description of an approach to learning called Project Based Learning or PBL. Parents had the opportunity to hear a description of PBL and see working examples from two of our teachers. If you have questions about PBL, please contact Andrea Neufeld.
My wish for each of the MBCI families now and throughout the year is that you will experience and share the Peace of Christ with those around you.
