Weekly Update – December 6th

Good afternoon families,

Christmas Shop – Our annual Christmas Shop was a huge success! Students took advantage of the opportunity to purchase items for the holiday season. A special thank you to Mrs. Estriga and all the wonderful parent volunteers who spent countless hours planning and organizing the event. Your efforts and commitment to the Christmas Shop and St. Nicholas school are greatly appreciated.

Angel Tree – A heartfelt thank-you to our students and families for all the amazing donations and support for our Angel Tree! St. Nicholas school continues to make a difference this holiday season! Just a reminder that we are accepting items until December 9th.

Today is the Feast of St. Nicholas! Thank you to our Student Ambassadors who prepared a special prayer service to honour our school Patron Saint!

Advent – As we look ahead to the 2nd week of Advent – our Advent school Mass is scheduled for next Thursday, December 12 at 9:15 am. All are welcome to attend. We also look forward to our Kindergarten Advent celebration on Wednesday, December 11th and our Gr. 1-8 Advent – No Room at the Inn celebration – both concerts will begin at 1:30 pm and taking place at St. James Parish.

Winter Weather – The winter weather has arrived! Students are reminded to please dress for all winter conditions. Students should have hats, gloves, and boots to enjoy the outdoors. All students need winter boots to access our field area, Gr. 1-3 students will also require snow pants. Thank you for your understanding and support.

Fast Food Lunches: As previously communicated at the start of the school year, fast foods that are not guaranteed to be nut-free, such as McDonald’s, A&W and Tim Hortons cannot be eaten in the classroom.  This has become a concern due to the large number of these lunches that are coming into the school.  Please do not send fast food lunches to school.  We do not have the space available for the number of students nor do we have the ability to supervise effectively. Thank you for your cooperation.

Lunch Supervisor – We are currently looking for Lunch Supervisors for our kindergarten area – it is a paid position. If you are interested and are available Monday to Friday – 11:50-12:50 and have a current Vulnerable Sectors Criminal Reference Check – please contact our main office.

Poinsettia orders are ready for pick up today, December 6th after 1 pm in our school forum. We thank Mrs. Czigli for organizing our Poinsettia Sale – just a reminder that all orders must be picked up no later than 4:30 pm.

As always, if there are any questions please contact our main office.
