Welcome to October! Here are a few updates and reminders for this week:
Our first Fundraiser ends on Thursday, October 7th! So don’t miss out on our Big Box Fundraiser which gives you an opportunity to order an “All Occasion Box” of cards, or an “All Birthday Box” of cards, or both, or as many as you wish! Each box contains 33 cards for only $33 (cheaper than the dollar store!). All the funds raised through this initiative will be going directly to indoor and outdoor play equipment for all our classrooms from Kindergarten to Grade 8. Share the information with family and friends and help us achieve our goals!
Our St. Anne Catholic School Council will meet for the first time tonight for their Commissioning Ceremony and appointments of positions. Please see our website for information about this year’s council: https://elem.hcdsb.org/stanne/about-our-school-council/.
On Wednesday, October 6th, our entire school will have the chance to view a live presentation from the Burlington Hydro on “Electricity Safety and Conservation.” This presentation will take place in the morning in all our classrooms virtually! Ask your children when they get home on Wednesday some of the things they learned from this presentation!
Friday, October 8th will be our first PA DAY! That means NO SCHOOL for students on Friday. Monday, October 11th is THANKSGIVING which means NO SCHOOL for staff and students. Enjoy this long weekend ahead!
Finally, our school PHOTO DAY has been confirmed for Friday, October 15th. Photographers will be here to take individual photos following all the latest Public Health protocols. Class photos will be made up of the individual photos in a composite style. Please see the flyer from Pegasus (our school photographer) that is now posted on our website for more information about this day:
Thank you for all you are doing to ensure the safety and well-being of all our community members here at St. Anne!
