Monday Memo

Happy Monday!

Hi everyone,

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!

- Pascale

Great Stuff, Great Staff.

Here are a few photos of great things happening around the school last week. Don't be shy to text me your own photos to include in these weekly newsletters. (Lots of people do!). I can't always get around to see everything, but I love to share what is happening in your classrooms. Click on any of the smaller photos to zoom in!
