Questions to ask your child after school instead of “How was your day?”
Good afternoon Hawks!
We have a number of unreturned school forms that we are still collecting. The most pressing form is the Walking Form that gives students permission to walk to church and in the neighbourhood (McLennan Park, Sheridan Nurseries, McLellan Hill etc.)
We have our Terry Fox run/walk this Thursday morning and those students who are not permitted to walk to McLennan Park will have to stay behind and walk around the school.
We also have mass on Thursday afternoon. Students without a walking form will stay back and watch a mass in the library on the brightlinks screen.
For your convenience Mrs. Neves will send out extra paper copies home in the next 2 days in case your copy got lost in the craziness of “back to school!”
Thank you for your help in returning these forms by Thursday September 26th!

I need your help in boosting our advertising for our Craft & Market Show! I am humbly asking for your help, as I am not as social media savvy as some of you😊
There are so many reasons why I am trying to draw in as many customers as possible:
- I have 45+ vendors who have donated table fees to attend our event, and I would like to do my best to bring in the customers to make their day successful as well
- We will be holding a raffle of the prizes donated by vendors & donations received will go directly to our gardening and outdoor play equipment
So please, please INVITE friends on your social media, family, friends, neighbours and any businesses that will allow you!
Our opening mass of the year will be celebrated at Blessed Sacrament on September 26th at 1:15pm. Please join us if you can.
Please know that pizza days will be ordered ONLINE only this year. This manner of ordering will eliminate paper waste and streamline our weekly pizza ordering process at the office. Pizza begins on October 3rd.
Please call Mrs. Neves in the office if you need support with setting up SchoolCash Online
Fall Craft & Market Show:
Please mark your calendars and come to the school’s Craft & Market Show on Oct. 26th from 9:00am-3:00pm at St. Mary’s School. I am looking for donations of chili crockpots and coffee boxes to be donated. Please call Mrs. Hunter if you can help make this event a success!

Parent Guide: Fundamental math skills from Grades 1 to 8
Most students learn math facts gradually over a number of years as they build their knowledge and confidence in their own ability to do math.
The link below provides examples of some fundamental math concepts and skills that students are expected to learn in elementary school by the end of primary grades (1-3), junior grades (4-6), and intermediate grades (7-8).
This guide is designed especially for Parents!
Mrs. Neves and Mrs. Gaiger had a wonderful time with our Social Justice Team in Toronto today at WE Day!
