We were so excited to see students participating in our virtual clubs this week! Seeing their smiling faces raised our spirits, and we hope that the clubs helped them feel connected to the school and to one another.
The calendar for this week’s clubs is attached below. We have worked to connect some of this week’s activities to our Catholic Education Week themes as well.
Remember that children can choose to try one or all of the activities in a given week, and, with your help, they may share to our school Twitter feed @OLPhcdsb here: https://twitter.com/OLPhcdsb. You can use the hashtags #FunClubsHCDSB and #TogetherApartHCDSB to connect with others.
No Twitter account? No problem! You can share your results with Mrs. Belobradic or Mrs. Baxter by emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. They will share them through their Twitter feeds. Mrs. Dore-Anderson may even post a selection to the school website! (Please note that anything you share through email may be posted to the school Twitter account and website as well.)
If you don’t want your children to share online, that’s OK too. You can still have fun by trying the activities as a family!
Families’ circumstances have changed drastically over the last few months, and agencies in Halton have been working with our school board to help families who find themselves in need.
