As we begin a new week, listed are a few important informational items and upcoming dates. 

Halloween Dance-a-Thon – Thank You!

Thank you to our St. Nicholas families for supporting the Halloween Dance-a-thon! We have raised almost $11,000.00 for our wonderful school! A special thank you to our Catholic School Council and the many wonderful parent volunteers who helped to make Halloween a positive experience for all. We thank the many families and local businesses who donated the generous prizes – your support continues to make a difference at St. Nicholas.

Progress Reports for Gr. 1-8 and Communication of Learning for Kindergarten students will be going home on November 24 – interviews for all students are scheduled for November 25 & 26. Interviews will be virtual this year. More information will be shared regarding interviews later next week.

Our Catholic School Council is scheduled to meet on Tuesday November 2, 2021 at 6:30 pm.  Parents interested in attending our virtual meeting can email Mrs. Spotswood for the meeting link no later than 3:00pm on November 2nd.  

Dressing for the Weather

We will continue to encourage outdoor play and learning as much as possible this year, so please send your children to school prepared for the cooler weather, including outdoor footwear. Thank you!  

Treaties Recognition Week

Treaties Recognition Week is the first week of November every year. Treaties Recognition Week was introduced in 2016 to honour the importance of treaties and to help Ontarians learn more about treaty rights and treaty relationships.

This annual event honours the importance of treaties and helps students and residents of Ontario learn more about treaty rights and relationships. By learning more about our collective treaty rights and obligations, we can create greater understanding and nurture relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.

Daily Confirmation of COVID-19 Self-Screening
Parents and guardians must perform daily screening of their child(ren) for COVID-19 symptoms BEFORE leaving for school using the COVID-19 Self-Assessment

  • Check your child’s temperature to ensure they do not have a fever (temperature greater than 37.8oC) 
  • Monitor for signs and symptoms (including atypical symptoms) of COVID-19 
  •  If any signs or symptoms, students and other household members must stay home, and school must be contacted. 

Please note that if a student or staff member shows signs or symptoms of COVID-19 or has come into close contact with anyone suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19, they cannot come to school. They must self-isolate and be tested for COVID-19.

Wishing all of our families a wonderful week!

Mr. Agro and Mrs. Spotswood
