November, already? Wow...where has the time gone. October was a busy month—we have many things to be thankful for during this time including a beautiful Thanksgiving Liturgy, a wonderful staff who organized meaningful activities during Education Week, supportive families who attend the many school functions, and a giving CSCC who put on a fun Halloween Family Dance.
We intentionally take time to celebrate individual and class accomplishments. These successes are examples of model behaviours that help others achieve success of their own. Our monthly assemblies recognize student leadership through PBIS. We see examples of Christian leadership daily through behaviours and academics. These skills are important and can be used at home, on the playground, the bus, or on team sports. It feels good to contribute and be a positive influence for others.
November is the time of year we acknowledge and pray for those who defend our country and keep us safe; we are forever in their debt. On November 9th, please join us at 11:oo a.m. for our ceremony of remembrance and peace.
During this month, teachers are preparing with students to share their progress with parents. Once again this year, the format of student-led conferences will allow the students to share their successes and goals with their parents. These conferences will take place again at the end of the second term in March. We are also excited to share the new outcomes-based report card with you. More details will be shared in the weeks ahead. We look forward to meeting with all of you to reflect on your child's year so far and look ahead to the future.
Yours in Catholic Education,
