Monday Memo

Holy Name of Mary, Monday, October 28, 2019

Happy Monday!

Halloween is on its way! The kids will be crazy excited leading up to Thursday night. We, on the other hand, will be dreading Friday.

I say if you can't beat them, you might as well join them. Bring your leftover candy to the staff meeting on Friday morning. (If the kids can eat candy for breakfast, so can we!)

This week's Shout-Outs:

A shout out to Jane for helping out in the Breakfast Program last week when we were short of volunteers!

- Mary Russell

Thanks Mary and Erin for all your hard work on ONSIS, and making sure all the reports support our most needy students. You two are a great team! Thank you!

- Sara Reid

Shout out to all staff for being so friendly and easy-going. I sure don't feel like I've been at Holy Name for only a year!

- Cathy

I would like to give a shout out to Kristine. I have at least two reasons to do so. Number one, Kristine was very kind and supportive in letting me use her room for my Club. Thanks. More importantly, at the end of club day I witnessed her greatness when she connected directly to two of her students who were celebrating a Birthday. She danced, she sang, she gave high fives. She led her class to do the same. She made those two students feel special.

- Ron

Thank you to Amy for helping me to organize the overflowing Lost & Found bin last week! It was great to have your help folding everything up so that kids can better find their lost items.

Thank you to the whole staff for wholeheartedly embracing our Community Clubs once again this year. It was so great to see the kids enjoying the wide diversity of clubs you came up with and to see them working hard to give back.

A shout out to Cathy for taking photos of this week's clubs! I missed most of them due to the WITS assembly, but it looks like everyone had a great time.

- Pascale

Great Stuff

Here are a few photos of great things happening around the school last week. Don't be shy about texting 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!
