EICS Just put this notice out. Wear Blue and Yellow or an Embroidered Shirt on May 19
Vyshyvanka Day (the day of the embroidered shirt) is May 19 this year. It is a national holiday in Ukraine.
We are asking all in our EICS community to wear blue/yellow or an embroidered shirt if they have one on this day. We encourage you to join together as a school community in prayer and a moment of silence.
Please share this information with your staff and in your newsletters if it's not too late.
Thank-you very much, ELK ISLAND CATHOLIC SCHOOLS

Students going into grade 4 will need their own Chromebook next year
Dear Parents of Students going into Grade 4:
EICS will be continuing with the “Bring Your Own Device” for learning known as “One to One” for the 2022-2023 school year for students in grade 4 and higher. Our IT Department has recommended a Chromebook for students in grade 4 as the optimal device.
We currently have some district refurbished ASUS ($40.00) and LENOVO ($20.00) Chromebooks available for purchase to be used by the grade 3 students going into grade 4 in the fall at Madonna Catholic School. Each comes with a power cord. These machines are not under any warranty.
Please call the office to request the purchase of one if you’re interested. The charge for the Chromebook would be applied to your child’s account. Once paid, a Chromebook would be issued to your child.
Alternatively, Staples has provided some information on purchasing a device from them see PDF letter below.
Please RSVP ... Volunteer Tea by calling the office or by confirming with your child's teacher.
