St. Paul Weekly Update May 27-31

Hello St. Paul Families,

It’s hard to believe that June is around the corner. It’s about time we put those winter clothes away for good. That being said, please visit our school this Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday as our Lost and Found Bin will be on display. There are many cold weather items that need to be picked up and returned to their rightful owners.

Please see below for important info items and dates.


  • Whale Cove Cereal Box Collection: We are gearing up for our annual Whale Cove food drive by asking families who are interested in donating cereal boxes. Our goal of 300 cereal boxes will help support this community in Nunavut for the entire year! Please refer to best before dates. These dates are important as the items have to last a year – so best before dates should be well into 2020. 


  • Salad Bar: Salad Bar begins this week for those who have registered. Reusable lunch containers will be coming home on Monday or Tuesday this week. Please wash it and have your child bring it every Wednesday (May 29-June 19) so they can enjoy their healthy lunch.

EQAO Assessment: Grade 3 and 6 Dates: 

  • Grade 3 EQAO Assessment – May 21, 22, 23
  • Grade 6 EQAO Assessment – May 27, 28, 29


  • Bike to School Week: Let’s get rolling! Join students across Ontario to celebrate Bike to School Week, Monday May 27 to Friday May 31, 2019. Ride your bike, scooter or walk to school – visit   and for more information.

Promoting Well-Being – Bike Safety

Cycling is a fun and healthy activity, it’s a low-cost way to get around, and it’s good for the planet. Cyclists have to share the road with cars, pedestrians and other cyclists. Before you head out on a bike, learn the rules of the road, helmet information and safety tips for cyclists of all ages. As recommended by Parachute Canada:

  • Always wear a helmet. Properly worn, it can reduce the risk of serious head injury by up to 80%. Know and follow the 2V1 Rule.
  • Be prepared. Know the rules of the road.
  • Check your ride. A fun and safe cycling experience starts with a properly equipped bicycle.
  • Be a role model. Set a good example and practice safety together.

The Ministry of Transportation’s Young Cyclist Guide has additional information on riding tips to keep you safe while cycling.  

Yours in Catholic Education,

N. Costa
