Dear Vanier families and friends,
We had an exciting week of Share the Spirit fundraising last week that is wrapping up with….wrapping! Many gifts will be purchased and wrapped this week to help make for a brighter Christmas for children throughout the territory.
This week, we turn our attention to our own students who may need assistance with the release of our booster cards which will be distributed tomorrow. See below for the long list of generous Yukon businesses who have offered discounts. We ask that every student sells two cards to help support their fellow students in need.
We are trying, as much as possible, to keep class time productive this week and next as many students will be writing large tests or completing substantial projects.
Thanks, as always, for your prayers and support.

God of power and mercy open our hearts in welcome. Remove the things that hinder us from receiving Christ with joy so that we may share his wisdom and become one with him when he comes in glory, for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
