*Back in early September, Mr. Zucchetto notified us of his intention to pursue a different career path in the area of Public Service effective Jan. 15, 2019. The PEC honoured his request and I am informing you that his last day at our School will be Jan. 15. We want to sincerely thank Lucas Zucchetto for his years of dedicated service to the Children of our School and wish him the very best in his future endeavours. We are happy to announce that Joseph Gabriele will be our new Phys. Educ. Teacher. Mr. Gabriele is a Graduate of SFU and has been shadowing Mr. Zucchetto in recent months, in an effort to make the transition as smooth as possible. 

*My heartfelt gratitude goes out to our School Community, for their overwhelming support of all our mission outreach programs throughout the Christmas Season. The emphasis on “community” was certainly evident, when it was most needed.

Wishing you God`s blessings at Christmas & throughout the New Year,
Mr. Dino Alberti
