Congratulations to Grade 4 student Olivia, and her brother, Owen, in Grade 6, on receiving a Snow Angel Award from the Mayor. A Snow Angel is a neighbour or friend that has volunteered to help someone who is elderly or has a disability in order to improve their accessibility during the winter by clearing snow or ice from their property.  Olivia and Owen helped an elderly neighbour by shoveling her driveway and walkway all of last winter without being asked.  They were recognized at City Hall by the Mayor and City Council.  The OLF community is very proud of you both, and how you have been "Sent to be the Good News" to others.

On Tuesday, October 31st the staff and students of Our Lady of Fatima are planning on celebrating Halloween in a special way.  Over the course of the day each class will join another to enjoy a Halloween movie and treat together.  What makes this day extra special is that we are using it as an opportunity to help others.  We are asking that each student bring in a donation to support our school’s United Way campaign.  We are suggesting a donation of $2, but are grateful for any amount you are able to give.  Please send in your donation on or before Tuesday.
