Holy Name of Mary, Monday, January 27, 2020
I love weeks where Friday is a PA Day! Don't forget that we are going to end off with Clubs on Thursday. Have a great week!
This week's Shout-Outs:
Shannon and Sandy for giving me paper plates (which I will replace) when a last minute idea came to mind.
Lucie and Jillian for their positive energy, and all their extra work they put into Wednesday- including endless food supplies, encouragement, washroom runs, etc.. Thanks to Erin for offering her home to support our needs:) I also wish to thank our great leaders, Caroline and Pascale, for showing their care and support in ways that speak to our hearts-music and hot chocolate:). The staff as a whole are amazing, supportive and positive which shows in how we are carrying on by providing quality education and care of students despite obvious tensions that our current situation brings.

Shout out to Micheline and Bryanna for braving the slopes with me. They also also brought home the troops when I was double booked. Thanks for giving up your evenings ladies! It fills my heart to know what a supportive staff we have! Thanks to all who braved the picket lines to walk with teachers, even when you could have stayed toasty inside. Treats, well wishes and hugs were greatly appreciated! In times like this, I love how we close ranks and get through together. Thanks everyone!!
- Sara Reid
Thank you to Shannon, Andrew and Ron for leading our awesome little choir. I had so much fun singing and playing with you at Mass this week. Thank you Gina for taking care of the Power Point and for helping lead Andrew's class while he was up in the choir loft.
Shout out to Cathy for helping me out on the yard at lunch this week and for working so hard to keep the kitchen clean! Much appreciated!
Great Stuff, Great Staff.
Julie's Kinders are learning all about polar bears in the Arctic. They were in luck last week, as Katie, Sarah, Catherine and Bryanna did this 1000 piece puzzle in record time in Katie's room! These little guys dazzled the Grade 4's with their polar bear knowledge!
Scott Stoqua was in last week to teach our Grade 8's valuable leadership skills. Scott said that they did an exemplary job, and commented that this is an exceptional group of young people. They worked on their leadership activity with two younger groups of students and did such a good job that Scott didn't even need to help them.
Sara Reid's Grade 7's are just beginning their Harry Potter novel. She's got them reading chapters independently in their books and responding to questions in their OneNote notebooks online. Notice her cute Bitmoji on the screen at the front of the room? Way to be cool, Sara!
Laura's Grade 4's were working on this beautiful penguin art when I walked in last Friday. Students were using charcoal for the penguins and filling in the background in blue. What a great winter art project!
I loved seeing this cute anchor chart hanging in the new wing this week. It's great to see teachers sharing what they are teaching and learning with the rest of the school community.
Break for Breakfast
We loved having Patrice's Independent Grocer in to provide all the kids with a healthy breakfast on Monday! Thank you to everyone for your patience through all the interruptions.
