Year End Administration Message
Greetings, Bertha Kennedy families!
I'm sure this is something we say every year, but we cannot believe that we are at the end of June again! It has been a year full of learning, leadership, and love. We have seen so much development in our students during this past year. As we reflect on this past school year, we are reminded of the many special qualities of our Bertha Kennedy Catholic School community: Through the Works of Mercy there has been so many moments throughout the year that we have witnessed via students, staff, and parents showing great care and concern for others. On a daily basis, there was evidence of someone who had reached out and helped another. There are so many people in our community who lead others by simply demonstrating kindness, compassion, and support. Thank you to everyone who has ‘Made a Difference’. All members of our community are active participants in the daily and seasonal activities in our school. We have consistently noticed kindness extended to newcomers and guests of our school. Because of this we have regularly received feedback from our guests about how much they love coming to Bertha Kennedy. Thank you to all for your kind and welcoming nature! We are truly blessed!
As much as we are looking forward to summer holidays, we are sorry to say farewell to a number of students and their families. For those families leaving us to attend school next year in a variety of locations, around St. Albert, the province and across Canada, you will be in our thoughts and prayers next year. We encourage you to remember that, ‘We are all God’s Hands’ as you become members of new school communities!
We pray that God blesses our school community with a safe and relaxing summer vacation. We look forward to seeing you all in the 2017/2018 school year!
