Dear Parents and Guardians:
We would like to thank you for your continued support in following the protocols set out by Halton Health to combat Covid-19. It is imperative that we wear masks when we cannot social distance and practice hand hygiene frequently.
Congratulations to our Grade Seven Students who received the Sacrament of Confirmation. We pray that you will use the gifts of the Holy Spirit to make the world a better place.
Progress Reports and Interviews
Progress reports will be e-mailed to parents on Tuesday, November 24th. To access the report, you will need to use your child’s OEN as the password. Be sure to include the dashes (-) when you enter the OEN.
Interviews will take place on the evening of Thursday, November 26th and during the day on Friday, November 27th. Classroom teachers should have sent you a link to join the interview on Teams. Please reach out to your child’s teacher if any difficulties. Please remember that interviews are ten minutes in duration.
Scholastic Book Fair
Beginning November 30th, students will be able to access lockers to hold coats and boots. According the the HCDSB revised Return to School Plan,
• Students will be able to use lockers to store OUTERWEAR ONLY. Personal items such as backpacks, texts, writing tools, lunches, etc. are to be kept in the classroom at all times.
• To ensure students spend minimal time at their locker, locks are NOT PERMITTED on student lockers.
• Students are each to be assigned an individual locker – students are not to share a locker unless they live in the same household and are in the same class.
To ensure physical distancing, lockers will be color-coded and cohorts will access lockers in groups that are distanced from one another. This week, students will be trained in how to access lockers safely.
Dress in Red for HCCEF
Please be reminded that on Thursday, November 26th, students are encouraged to wear red and bring in a toonie in support of Halton Catholic Children’s Education Fund. Donations to support this wonderful cause can also be made through School Cash Online between November 22nd and 27th.
Angel Tree Campaign
To support families in the Milton community this Christmas, we are initiating a ‘virtual angel tree’, in an effort to reduce contact of items. Families will be able to donate via school cash online between November 30th and December 6th to support families in need. For each family donation, each of the children from that family will be given an angel to decorate and proudly display in our front hallway. We will also accept gift cards so families can pick out their own gifts this Christmas holiday. Suggested gift cards are Walmart, Toys R Us, Superstore, Starbucks, McDonald’s, Tim Hortons, Cineplex, Subway, and Indigo. These will be quarantined before passing them along for distribution. If you know of a particular family in need, please reach out to the school office staff or administration. Thank you in advance for your support!!
Health Tip of the Week
Students are encouraged to wear their favourite colour to celebrate their uniqueness. Please ensure clothing worn reflects the board’s dress code.
