Hi Kinder Families,

We bid a special farewell to our school's librarian, Mrs. Koop, this past week! She has given us almost 25 years of service and she has decided to spend more time with her grandchilden and traveling the world! We are very thankful to have had such a great librarian! Also this week, the Grade 7s threw a wonderful fundraising event! The children really enjoyed buying some treats and having the opportunity to take a photo at their special photo booth!  

Reminder next week, there is no school on Friday, as the staff has a Professional Development Day!

Happy Victoria Day Kinder families!

We hope you've enjoyed the long weekend! We had a fun in-class, field trip last week with High Touch-High Tech. The kinders learned all about Newton's Three Laws of Motion and did lots of activities that showed the push and pull of various objects! It was a great introduction to our science unit! 

With a dress down day and a special assembly, we're looking forward to another great week in Kindergarten!

Happy Mother's Day Kinder Families! We hope you had a wonderful day! 

We had a very exciting Friday last week! We started the day off by leading the assembly with our Grade 6 Buddies! The Kinders did a great job in the procession to crown our Mother Mary and with leading the rosary! Thank you parents, for practicing with your children at home! We then went on our field trip to 4Cats and the children were excellent listeners! We can't wait for you to see their wonderful artwork! Thank you to the dads who were able to take the time to accompany us, we hope you enjoyed it! We ended our day with a Community Helper presentation from Rachel's dad, Mr. Mallari! He brought in a recycling truck and we learned tips on reducing, reusing and recycling. We even got to see the recycling truck in action!

We look forward to our Annual Mother's Day Tea tomorrow! We're looking forward to celebrating and thanking all mothers for everything they do!

Happy Easter! He is Risen! We hope you had a wonderful Easter long weekend with your families celebrating the Lord's journey to the cross and His resurrection.

 

Thank you to everyone who has registered for the Student-Led Conferences on Friday! This day is set aside to celebrate your child's accomplishments in the classroom and to give them an opportunity to show you their hard work. There will be several stations to visit during your half-hour appointment time. The Kinders are very excited to show you around our classroom! As this is your child's time in the classroom with you, please be sure to make childcare arrangements for preschool age siblings. While the teachers will be in the classroom, there are no scheduled parent/teacher meetings during this time. If you have any concerns about your child's progress, please be sure to set a meeting time with us for another day. We are looking forward to seeing everyone on Friday!

WEEK OF APRIL 3 - 7

Hi Kindergarten Families,

The children returned back from Spring Break eager to begin Term 3! We can't believe it's already Term 3- time really does fly by when you're having a wonderful time! The students have come so far, and we look forward to watching them continue to grow in their final term together in Kindergarten. This week the children begin their "Spelling Challenges." Please be sure to check your child's homework folder for the full list.

As we begin the fifth week of Lent, the children continue to review Prayer, Faster and Almsgiving during this Lenten Season. Please continue to colour in one space in their 40-day lenten journey maps! We also encourage all students to try to attend morning Lenten Mass at 8:15 am.
