Scare Hunger Campaign
Our 'Scare Away Hunger' food drive is well under way.  Thank you to the many families who have already brought in non-perishable food items, to help those in need throughout our community.   Our food drive will continue until the end of this week, if you have not had a chance to bring an item in yet.  Thank you for your generosity in supporting this project.

Terry Fox Thank You
Back in 1980, Terry Fox could never have imagined how magnificently Canadians would keep his dream going after his death. The Terry Fox Foundation would like to acknowledge how humbled they are by the wonderful support our school has shown in keeping Terry’s dream alive that cancer can be beaten. They want to say a big thank you to St. Jean de Brebeuf students for participating in the Terry Fox run for the past 16 years. What an accomplishment!

Terry and his team are proud of what you have been able to do and are grateful for your generous donation of $1660.00 in this year’s campaign. Well done Bobcats! The spirit of Terry Fox lives on at St. Jean de Brebeuf!

School Day Announcement:

Paying by Debit Visa (CIBC) or Debit Master (BMO) Card

Over the past year, Bank of Montreal has been in the process of replacing Debit - Interac cards with Debit Master cards.

Bank of Montreal no longer supports Interac online payments.

Debit Master Cards can be used for online purchases and will work similarly to CIBC's debit visa card.

Please note that if you are paying by Debit Visa or Debit Master Card, you must select and enter credit card info first in the credit/master card portion of the parent screen. After the card info is entered, you will then have the option of paying debit from your bank account or paying with your master card.

The above process may not work for those parents who have not yet received their new card. The Bank of Montreal has indicated that parents can request a Debit Master card to replace their Debit card.

Thank you for using School-Day!
