St Brigid Weekly Update – Week of October 26, 2020
The “Hallowe’en Celebration”, our major school fundraiser for this year, took place today. Students had a great day participating in classroom-based activities and virtual BINGO with their divisions. We are still accepting donations through School CashOnline, up until November 1st! A huge note to thanks to those who have already donated, as well as the parents who helped behind the scenes and all the donations received for prizes. We appreciate your generosity!
November 1st (All Saints Day) and November 2 (All Souls Day) are solemn holy days of the Catholic Church that are celebrated annually. As a school community, we will be celebrating these holy days with prayer and discussion in classrooms. Each class will have the opportunity to participate in our virtual liturgy for All Souls and All Saints Day on Monday, November 2nd.
Please continue to keep screening your children for COVID-19 each day using the updated guidelines in the link below:

As always, the health and safety of our students, staff and families is our highest priority, and we will continue to take direction from the Ministry of Education and Halton Region Public Health to ensure all protocols are in place and followed in each of our schools.
Each day, we share health and safety reminders with our students and staff through announcements and in-class discussions. Students are always reminded to socially distance when outside, enter and exit the building in a silent manner, ensure they remain in their designated area while outside at recess and lunch to maintain cohorts, use proper hand hygiene and refrain from sharing any personal items. We are proud of our students and staff and the efforts they make each day to ensure their own safety and the safety of others at St. Brigid School.
Thank you to all our families who were able to donate for our Thanksgiving food drive by providing a cash donation. We have raised over $2000 to support our local food bank. We appreciate your generosity!
The following document is shared on behalf of Halton Public Health with some tips for trick or treating this weekend. Wishing all our families a wonderful weekend and safe Hallowe’en.
