Halloween at St. Anne CES……

Hello Families,

Halloween is fast approaching. We have some changes this year we need to share. We typically host our main fundraiser as a Halloween dance-a-thon. Our school advisory council voted this year to move the fundraiser to a Valentine themed dance-a-thon in February. More details to come.

Our school will be participating in some fun Halloween activities on Thursday, October 31st. Each grade or division will be planning their own activities so your child’s classroom teacher will share details. Please note:

  • Students are encouraged to wear no violent themed costumes
  • Please avoid overly scary costumes
  • Weapons or small accessories should stay at home
  • We are not responsible for lost or damaged costumes
  • Teachers decide when their class will wear or model costumes
  • Orange and black is a good idea for older students
  • Teachers will go over trick or treat safety rules, but parents are also encouraged to do so at home
  • Treats should not be home baked, but store bought and labelled as peanut free

We wish everyone a fun, safe, happy Halloween.

Thank you,

St. Anne School Staff

 

Strong Start Volunteers are Needed

Volunteers are needed to coach children in a reading program at St. Anne School. Volunteer Coaches will work with Kindergarten and grade one students who need an extra boost in learning letter names, sounds and sight words. Through fun literacy games and activities, coaches teach children in a one-to-one setting. The program schedule is flexible and requires a minimum of one hour a week for a ten week period. Training sessions for coaches are running throughout September and October. You can learn more about Strong Start at www.strongstart.ca or contact Julie Silva Julie.Silva@wcdsb.ca if you have any questions.

Update: Agenda Delay…..

Hello Families…….

Please note that the distributor for our school agenda’s is backlogged and delivery has once again been delayed. This is an issue for most schools across the region. The school board is working with the company in an effort to correct the issue.

We are being told that our schools should arrive in 4 weeks.

We apologise for the inconvenience and also thank our school council who covers the full cost.

Thank you,

St. Anne School Staff

Procedures for Monday – Possible CUPE Strike……

Hello Families,

It is our hope that CUPE and the government will be able to reach an agreement that is equitable for all involved.

In the event that a strike happens and schools are closed Monday – information will be shared in the same way as when schools are closed for inclement weather. Please monitor the WCDSB web site, and local news outlets.

It is our hope that a resolution is reached, but we suggest planning for alternativer child care during the job action.

Let us pray together as St. Anne has taught us…………

Good St. Anne,

you were especially favored by God to be the mother of the most holy Virgin Mary, the Mother of our Savior.

By your power with your most pure daughter and with her divine Son,

kindly obtain for us the grace and the favor we now seek.

Please secure for us also forgiveness of our past sins,

the strength to perform faithfully our daily duties

and the help we need to persevere in the love of Jesus and Mary.

Amen.
