Hey Cens!

Yesterdays hint for our mysterious staff member was...what is your best quality…being silly. And what is your worst quality… thinking and talking too much. Todays final hint is … in ten words or less write a rule for a day that everyone would have to follow: the answer: make today the best day yet. We ask that all homeroom reps to please post their answers on our student council instagram story immediately!! We will be announcing the mysterious staff member at the end of period 1 so be sure you make your guess!!



Putting our faith into action and leading by example has been a request made by Pope Francis.  He calls all Catholics to demonstrate their faith in day to day actions as well as those traditional actions that are directly linked to worship and the Eucharist. 

As you look around the halls and classrooms of HCC today and for the next five weeks, one day a week you will notice some of your teachers, support staff and office staff  wearing jeans.  This is an example of faith in action.  These members of our staff have made a financial contribution to our United Way Staff Fundraiser to allow programs sponsored by the United Way to reach into our local communities and bring aid and support to those who need it in a variety of ways.

 

The Knit Wits will be knitting up a storm today at lunch in the guidance office. If you are interested in joining, don't be sheepish - we will teach you everything you need to know! Come to guidance at lunch today and get crafty!  

 

 

 

Our Chaplaincy Team invites you to support our Centurion Cares Collection! We are looking for donations of gently used or new coats, mitts, hats and boots of all sizes. Your donations will help support youth and their families in our local community. Donation boxes are located outside of the chapel.

 

There are two exciting retreat opportunities coming up for high school students: Come out and learn about our faith while making new friendships, sharing meals and having a great time together. The COR Retreat will be held from Oct 26-28 in Dublin, ON for all students in grade 11 and up. All Saint's Parish invites all high school students to join in a retreat on October 26 and 27 at the parish. Please see Natalie for more information about registration for either retreat.

 

"Are you interested in trying out for the senior girls volleyball team? our first tryout will be held on Tuesday Oct 23 from 4-5:15pm. A tryout schedule has been posted on room 212. All Senior girls are welcomed to try out."

Hey Cens give the members of the Junior Girls Basketball Team a pat on the back for their game last night against MTS. The girls new they were going to be going against a strong team but they played with determination, never gave up, were hustling up and down the court and can hold their heads high. they represented HCC with grace. Come out and see some great basketball on Monday night after school as both Senior and Junior Girls Teams take on St. Mary's at Home. should be a good game. Game time is 3:00 for Juniors and 4:30 for Seniors. Hope to see you there.

 

 

Attention HCC Knit Wits.  Today's lunch meeting has been cancelled. Mrs. Pinheiro and Ms. Zebregts look forward to seeing you and your projects next Friday.  

 

What a great day for football! Thanks to Mr Marinelli and the Student Council for organizing the pep rally with our family of schools. The football teams had a great time in front of all of the fans.  Even though our offenses had a tough day, the defense showed some wonderful individual plays such as Max Couto's interception in the endzone and Vytenis Mickvicious' many Tackles.

Thanks to all who supported Football this season.

 

 

Once again todays final hint is...in ten words or less write a rule for a day that everyone would have to follow: the answer: make today the best day yet. We ask that all homeroom reps to please post their answers on our student council instagram story immediately!! We will be announcing the mysterious staff member at the end of period 1 so be sure you make your guess!!

 

Happy birthday to Elizabeth Jefferey from all your friends.
