St Brigid Weekly Update – Week of January 20, 2020

Dear Parents,

It’s been a busy week with regular clubs resuming, volleyball seasons concluding, basketball season getting started and “Battle of the Books” tryouts. On Thursday we hosted our annual Junior Volleyball Tournament for the boys. The boys’ volleyball skills have developed so much since practices started prior to Christmas! Thanks to all our students and staff who helped coach, referee and support pizza sales.

Please ensure that your children are dressed appropriately for outdoor recesses daily! Students are outside for approximately 60 minutes daily. Warm jackets, snow pants, boots, hats and mittens/gloves are essential, even when there is minimal snow.  We endeavor to go outside for all recesses! For additional information about how decisions are made regarding outside recesses, please visit HCDSB Inclement Weather Safety.

Kindergarten Registration takes place online. Please share this information with others in the community. Please complete the online registration as soon as possible and prior to part 2 of the registration process. This allows our office staff time to be prepared for part 2 of the registration process.  For all the details visit: HCDSB Kindergarten Registration Part 2 of registration takes place on Tuesday, January 21 or Wednesday, January 22, 2020  from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
