mARCH 21ST AND MARCH 23RD 4:00-7:30

This term your child and you will participate in conferences in a unique way: student- led conferences. A student- led conference is a time for you to come and listen to your child share their learning. The conferences will be facilitated by the teacher, but led by the student. This is an extremely valuable opportunity for your child to share their strengths and acknowledge areas in need of growth. Conference time slots will be 30 minutes long. You will be able to sign up through the link below.

Please note:

  • there may be three student-led conferences going on in the classroom at the same time.

  • stations will also be set up in the gym for students to take their parents through

    CODE TO SIGN UP: 49bf6

Grade 2 classes meet with Amy Dow that lives in Iqaluit to give a presentation on living there.

St. Patrick School is looking to "Lent a Hand" this Lenten season by raising money for Beacon of Hope which supports newcomers from Ukraine and other countries. Donations of Toonies, Lonnies, and loose change can be sent with your child and collected in the big green buckets in the classroom. Let's start collecting and show our school's giving spirit.

St.Patrick School Indigenous Education

St. Pat’s staff and students have been learning about and engaging with traditional Indigenous Medicine Wheel teachings this term.

Medicine wheels represent the alignment and continuous interaction of the four quadrants: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual realities. The circle shape represents the interconnectivity of all aspects of one’s being, including the connection with the natural world. Everything in the wheel has a relationship with each other; thus, there has to be balance amongst each of the four quadrants to achieve harmony.

Each classroom has a Medicine Wheel displayed and every month we focus on learning about a new quadrant. For the month of March we are learning about mental well being and how we can be kind to our mind. Ideas that St. Pat’s students came up with included reading and colouring. As a result, students have been able to work on fulfilling this quadrant by listening to beautiful read-aloud stories by Indigenous authors and participating in mindful colouring pages created by Indigenous artists to work on calming our minds and slowing down our brains throughout our busy days.
