With Thanks…

Hello Families,

With Thanksgiving weekend upon us, we give thanks for being back together as a school community. We are thankful to have the energy of the kids back in the building and being able to learn alongside them. We are thankful for a community that has supported one another as we live and work though this pandemic. We are hopeful that we will all remain safe and that in the months to come we will once again be able to gather and celebrate like we have in the past.

Heavenly Father, on Thanksgiving weekend, we bow our hearts to You and pray. We give You thanks for all You’ve done, especially for the gift of Jesus, Your Son. For beauty in nature, Your glory we see, for joy and health, friends, and family. For daily provision, Your mercy and care, these are the blessings You graciously share. So today we offer this response of praise with a promise to follow You all of our days.

Amen.

Our Terry Fox run/walk day is Tuesday, September 28, with a rain date to be selected if needed. We are asking for a Toonie donation if possible to be brought in. Classes will be participating on our school yard with divisional classmates. This is always a wonderful event at our school, and we thank you for the support.

We have a virtual school assembly planned for this Thursday, the 30th for Orange Shirt Day (Truth and Reconciliation) as we learn more together about the Indigenous peoples experience with residential schools in Canada.

For Bus Students……

Hello Phoenix Families,

We wanted to remind students eligible for bussing of the following…..

We are required to submit a seating plan to Public Health for contact tracking and precious time is wasted calling out to families who are eligible, but do not ride the bus.

If you qualify for the bus, but you have no plans to ride, you are required to fill out a “Do not Ride” form with STSWR.

Here is the link: https://www.stswr.ca/policies/information-for-parents-students/do-not-ride/

This will help with more efficient route planning and contact tracing if we have a positive case.

We greatly appreciate your support.

Be well,

St. Anne School Staff
