“Creativity is contagious, pass it on” – 
Albert Einstein
On Friday night St. Bernadette School will celebrate our annual Arts Night. Every year during March, which is National Arts Month, the school becomes transformed by hundreds of pieces of beautiful art work providing us with a stunning visual feast for our eyes. Parents and students wander the hallways enjoying the amazing artwork before meeting in the Charbonneau Center for the performing arts section of the program. Tomorrow night the program will include Irish Step Dancing, Spanish songs, and third graders performing on their recorders. The St. Bernadette School Choir will present two songs and the Experienced Band will wow us all with their expertise. To conclude the evening, the audience will enjoy a taste of The Spring Musical Review, which this year will be Peter Pan!
Auction items will be on display in the Charbonneau Center.
We look forward to seeing you at school tomorrow night from 6:00-8:00pm.

The Health Office at Saint Bernadette School will be doing an annual Postural Screening on Grades 5 – 8 during the week of March 25-29. The purpose of this is to find early signs of possible spinal problems in children. It is not a diagnostic service but a program to identify young people who should have further medical evaluation.
If your child has any unusual findings, you will be notified and asked to take your
child to a physician as a precaution. The majority of students exhibit no findings. If
nothing unusual is found, we will not be contacting you again until the screening
next year.
Female children are asked to wear a sports bra, halter top, or a swimsuit top
the day of the screening. These items can be worn under the school gym
uniforms. This type of clothing permits more accurate observation of the back.
   There is an opt out form, that you can print and fill out.  The form can be found on the Website under Health Office.
