Weekly Bulletin - April 24, 2020

Parent/Teacher Conference April 27 - May 7

Dear Parents,


As you are aware, we had to postpone our "Student-led conferences" originally scheduled for March 30th/Apr. 1st. We would like to extend this opportunity to you once again in a Parent-Teacher context through the period of April 27-May 7.


Many of you have been in close contact with your teacher and may not feel this is necessary at this time. However, teachers will be reaching out through their Google Classroom to extend this opportunity in accordance with their schedules(s). These meeting could occur through a Google Meet, Zoom call, or telephone call.

What does online assessment look like at St.Patrick School?

Unfortunately we can't run together as a team, but I would encourage all past team members and anyone else to join the virtual AMA Run Club. This is a great opportunity for families to go out together and be active! Heading out for a run before you start your school work for the day or after lunch would provide a great energy boost for everyone! These unique times have provided many of us with the flexibility to get outside and move during the day, let's take advantage of it!


By registering for the club participants will receive:

  • Weekly emails (to parents) with activities and challenges you can complete at home
  • A 10 week running/walking program that builds up to a 2 or 5 km fun run!
  • Certificate of completion at the end of June and finisher prizes for every participant
  • An entry to win 1 of many Garmin Activity Trackers drawn at the end of June
