We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Karen Davis, mother of two of our students, Emily (Grade 8) and Alyssa (Grade 6) and former graduates, Abbey and Kelsey (currently at St. Joan of Arc).  

Our prayers are with Peter, Karen's husband, and the girls during this very difficult time. The entire school community extends its heartfelt sympathy to the Davis family, their friends and relatives.  Funeral arrangements have been made and information can be obtained from the Adam's Funeral Home Website.  

Our School Councillor has been available to consult with our teachers and to address any concerns of our students.  Teachers in grades 6-8 have informed their students and students were given the opportunity to write condolences to the Davis Family.  As a result of classroom discussions, your child may have questions or worries about this loss.  I am attaching a few links that may be helpful if your child is wanting to talk about this at home.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.  Please continue to keep the Davis family in your prayers.
