Just a reminder to families that this Friday, January 31st is a Professional Activity day for teaching staff and there is no school on Friday. We will see all students back on Monday, February 3rd.

Catholic School Council Meeting

Our Catholic School Council is scheduled to meet on Monday, February 3rd, 2020 at 6:30 pm – parents are always welcome.

Winter Walk Day – February 5, 2020 is #WinterWalkDay across Canada. It’s the perfect opportunity for parents and kids to get outside together and stretch those legs! Walk to and from school to improve physical and mental health, create a healthier environment, safer streets, make friends and have fun! Walking is the simplest form of exercise and helps kids get the 60 minutes of daily physical activity they need. It’s also a great cure for winter blues and helps students concentrate better in class. Our St. Nicholas Admiral’s Eco-Team will be organizing our very own school winter walk for those students who don’t have the opportunity to walk to school. Students are reminded to please dress for the weather, on Wednesday, February 5th!

Our school will be taking part in National Sweater Day on Friday, February 7th! National Sweater Day is an annual event organized by World Wildlife Fund Canada. On National Sweater Day, WWF asks Canadians to turn down thermostats by two degrees Celsius at home, at school and at work to highlight the role that energy conservation plays in preventing climate change. Our school building will be a little chillier on February 7, so we are asking that all students wear or bring a favorite sweater to wear over their uniform shirt. Please note this a regular uniform day. We are looking forward to a cozy day in the classroom! Thank you to our St. Nicholas Eco team for their ongoing leadership and their environmental stewardship.
