Don’t ever let anyone bring you down, define who you are or destroy your AWESOMENESS.
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.
Virtual parent-teacher interviews are during the evening of November 26th and during the school day on November 27th. If you have yet to book your interview, the program is live until 8:00 PM Sunday, November 15th.

Kiss’ N Ride
Please remember if you need to escort your child to the gates of the school to park in a parking spot and not in the kiss’n ride lane. Staff on duty are happy to escort your child to the appropriate door if you are unable to find a spot.
Please remember to wear masks on school property before and after school when social distancing is difficult.
Please ensure students have a reusable water bottle at school as water fountains are not in use this year. We do have a filling station that is available for use.
