Dear HRM Families,
Thank you for your support and generosity. We are truly overwhelmed with your contributions towards the HRM Halloween Dance-a-Thon Fundraiser. You have truly been incredible!
Thank you to our amazing Student Parliament members, Ms. Belmonte, Ms. Holding, and Ms. Ventura for their leadership and facilitation of all the different events including the Dance-a-Thon’s music. Special thanks to our Intermediate students for creating and sharing their Haunted House videos.
Thank you to our wonderful HRM Catholic School Council members for their help on Monday night as they worked hard to sort and create the various Halloween Dance-a-Thon prizes. Special thanks to Ms. Cutrara for creating this year’s catalog for the prizes.
Thank you to all the local businesses for their generous donations towards the Halloween Dance-a-Thon prizes. We will provide a list of donors next week in our Weekly Update.
Happy Halloween to you and your families- Wishing you a safe and fun-filled weekend!

COVID-19 Safety Measures: For the safety and well-being of all students and staff, parents and guardians must perform daily screening of their child(ren) for COVID-19 symptoms BEFORE leaving for school using the COVID-19 Self-Assessment.
- Check your child’s temperature to ensure they do not have a fever (temperature greater than 37.8C)
- Monitor for signs and symptoms (including atypical symptoms) of COVID-19
- Individuals experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 as identified in the screening tool, must not attend school and should follow the guidance provided in the screening tool
The Government of Ontario daily self-screening tool can be accessed here: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/
Driving Etiquettes Before and After School: We have received complaints about unsafe driving habits during before and after school pick up and drop off. We ask to please be aware of your surroundings, drive at a slow speed, and follow the sign stating to only turn right before 4pm.
11th Annual HCCF Evening with Bishop Crosby – Virtual Edition- Wed. Nov. 17, 2021 – Reception at 6:30pm; Main Event at 7:00-8:30pm: The Halton Catholic Children’s Foundation (HCCF) supports HCDSB students in need with basic necessities (i.e. food and clothing) & with school activities that have a fee (i.e. team or club fees).
“With this funding the foundation has gratefully reduced the stress impacting the family and helped to ensure access to basic needs.” – HCDSB Social Worker
HCCF needs our help so they can continue to say “yes” to helping HCDSB students with financial barriers to learning. They are looking for companies to be a sponsor at the event and for community members to purchase tickets and to donate.
It is NOT another Zoom call. We are using https://www.kumospace.com/ so you can have fun and interact with your friends. Enjoy a meal and your favourite beverage while you catch up with others. Join the Halton Catholic Community for an entertaining experience where you can connect with your friends and hear Bishop Crosby’s stories, sense of humour and wisdom.
