Dear Parents and Guardians:

This week we mark Anti-bullying Awareness week as described in last week’s update. Students will participate in discussions around ensuring the dignity of all peoples.

Dress in Red for H.C.C.E.F.

On Thursday, November 26th students and staff are encouraged to wear red and donate a toonie to support Halton Catholic Children’s Education Fund. HCCEF is an independent charitable organization. Since 2012 they have partnered with the Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB) to support students and families in need. Schools identify the student or family in need and apply to HCCEF for assistance. Funding is used to purchase the need on behalf of the student or family (i.e. basic necessities or school activities with a fee). Beginning November 22nd and until November 27th, School Cash Online will be open to accept donations for this worthy cause.
