December 2, 2009 -
As the holidays are approaching quickly, many of our schools are experiencing a flurry of events. This is true for Bishop Alexander Carter Catholic Secondary School. The school has had several outstanding events occur and many more happening in the upcoming weeks. Just a few of the great things that have happened recently at Bishop include hosting their fifth Annual Spaghetti Dinner for students, parents, community (feeder schools) and staff which was a huge success. Over three hundred people attended and it was a super fundraiser for the school. As well, the Bishop A.C.C.S.S. Junior Girls basketball team were the city champions for the second year in a row. For the month of December, the students and staff have been gathering items to make up a Christmas Hamper as well as collecting gently used winter clothing items for the St. Kevin's Parish initiative called "Socks for the Sole". On December 4th, the school will be hosting a Parent Breakfast at the Breakfast Club and parents and the community have been invited to attend. This breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. and runs until 8:10 a.m. To add to all of this, the school is also in the process of raising money to donate to the annual CTV telethon. Through mission donations and neighbourhood caroling, the school has raised $665 to date. The students are continuing with this fundraising effort until Friday with the hopes of bringing that total even higher. The staff and students of Bishop A.C.C.S.s. have been extremely busy and we look forward to hearing more about their school community in the upcoming weeks!
