OLA Year End 2016 Message

OLA June 2015


Thank you for a wonderful year at Our Lady of the Assumption School.  I would like to thank our terrific staff for all their hard work and I would like to thank all of the parents for advocating, supporting, and encouraging your children.  Together we are making our school a very special place.  Lastly, thank you to all the wonderful students for sharing their many gifts with us.

2016-17 promises to be an exciting year.  We have many exciting ideas and we are welcoming new staff into our OLA family.

On behalf of Our Lady of the Assumption I wish everyone an enjoyable, restful and safe summer vacation.  We will miss our grade 6 students who are moving on and we look forward to seeing everyone else on September 6.

With kindest regards,

Greg Kostiuk

Lord, thank you for the past year.

For the things we have learned,

for the fun we have had,

for the skills and knowledge we have gained,

for the help we gave and received,

and for the friends we have made.

We pray for those leaving our school.

We wish them all the best;

for their new schools, new friends, and new activities;

and for their well-being.

We pray for everyone here.

That we have a happy summer holiday, for safety for those who travel, for families and friends, for help and guidance, and for continuing growth in faith and hope and love.

Hear us, heavenly Father, as we offer our prayers to you –

the prayers we have said, and the silent prayers of our hearts –

through your Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ.

At the end of June we announced our teaching staff for the 2016-17 school year.  One of our teachers, Mrs. Baptista, has decided to take a leave for the 2016-17 school year.  We wish her well and look forward to having her back the following school year.  Due to this leave the following changes we be occuring:

We are now done our teaching staffing for 2016-17.  We thank Mrs. Greeno, Ms. Groten, and Ms. McNulty for sharing their many gifts with us.  All three of them are transferring to our new school Blessed Mother Teresa.  We wish them all the best.  Also, Mrs. Graf is taking a leave for a year.  We wish her all the best too.  Replacing these four talented teachers was hard.  Next year we welcome Mrs. Orr (transferring from St. Patrick’s School), Mr. Tratch (transferring from St. Paul School), and new teachers Ms. Chief Moon and Ms. Pedersen.  Here is a listing of the talented teachers for 2016-17:
