WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL

We wish to welcome back to school all new students and families, as well as the new teachers who
have joined us at TLA. We look forward to another successful year at school!

FIRST SCHOOL MASS

Our first school Mass will be held at 10:00 AM, this Thursday, September 14, the feast of the Exultation
of the Holy Cross at Our Lady of Lourdes, in Laval Square. Fr. Daniel Geddes, FSSP, our TLA
chaplain, will be offering Mass, and all TLA families are invited to attend.

ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE OF STUDENTS

Drivers are reminded that there is no student drop off or pick up in the staff parking lot. Drivers
are requested to drop off their passengers at the sidewalks, and then leave the area to allow others to
deliver their passengers safely. Thank you for making our local streets safe for students.

GRADE 8 & 12 KAYAK TRIP – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 22

Mrs. Akhurst, Mr. John Fawcus, Mr. Martin Dale, and the kayak instructor/guides from Rocky Point
Kayak, will accompany our Grade Eight and Twelve classes on this annual trip up Indian Arm to Twin
Islands Friday of the coming week. All students in these two grades will meet at 8:00 AM at Belcarra
Park for their instruction before heading out onto the water. Our annual Kayak Leadership Trip is
designed to provide the opportunity for the grade twelve class to welcome the grade eight students into
high school and to involve them in several leadership activities. Forms will be sent home soon; please
return these to the home room teachers immediately.

TLAWALK-A-THON 2017 – Thursday, October 5

The race is on to collect pledges for this year’s Walk-A-Thon. All TLA students take an active part in this
major school fund raiser, qualifying for cash and prizes according to their individual and class
achievements. The Walk-A-Thon is a major contributor to our school budget and we hope this year to
top $35,000.00, which works out at an average of $180.00 per student as our goal. Pledge sheets will
be sent home shortly, and more are available at the school office. Thank you to Mrs. Vicki Guzikowski
for coordinating this year’s prizes and event.

WELCOME BACK BARBECUE THURSDAY, SEPT. 14, 6PM

We look forward to getting together with all our TLA families at this beginning-of-the-year event at
school! Come to meet the teachers in the activity room at 6:00 PM, and to hear about this year’s
activities, followed by our ever popular BBQ in the back yard.

USED UNIFORM SALE TIME!

Used uniform items may be purchased on Fridays from 3:15 – 3:30 PM at the school office. Browse our
selection of gently used items at rock bottom prices!

FRONT DOOR USE

A friendly reminder that the front door is for the use of adults and the grade 11/12 students. Students in
grades K – 10 enter and leave the school by the back door, between 8:45 AM and 4:00 PM. After that
time, or if a student is late for school, they may use the front door.
