Highlights for this week…

Halloween Dance-a-thon Major Fundraiser!

Dance Date Friday, October 29, 2021

We are excited to host our Annual Halloween Dance-a-thon fundraiser once again! All proceeds will help support learning and activities for our school. All students and families are encouraged to participate in pledge-collecting through our School Cash Online platform or through donations on the OLV School website. Our target is to raise $6000 or $20 per student. Students will be scheduled by classroom in their cohorts in the gym and outdoors (weather permitting) to enjoy the dance and the Halloween activities and crafts throughout the day.

Student pledge sheets will be entered into a prize draw for a chance to win signed sports memorabilia, pizza lunches, free gym time or movie day, and Principal of the Day! Thank you for your consideration and participation.

Reminders from the Office

Picture day! October 25

Edge Imaging is committed to following all the Public Health protocols – masking, hand hygiene, respiratory etiquette, and physical distancing – to ensure that the students are safe during the photo shoot. Only individual student photos will be taken; there will be no grouping of students for class photos. There will be an opportunity for re-takes for any staff or students. Re-take date will be confirmed and posted on the OLV School website.

COVID-19 Self-Assessment and Screening Tool

Parents are reminded to continue to monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 at home each day and on weekends and to complete the COVID-19 School and Child Care Screening Tool for each student before sending them to school, as per Public Health requirements to keep everyone safe and healthy.
