Mid-March Parent Newsletter

March 18, 2021

Hello Griffons Families!Mid March Parent Newsletter.png

 

Do we dare get excited about spring?  We all know that Saskatchewan weather can change in an instant but the longer, sunnier days are sure signs that warmer days are ahead!

Please take note of the following information items:

 

Student-involved Conferences

Our March conferences will be held virtually or by phone next Wednesday, March 24th and Thursday, March 25th.  There is no school for teachers and students on Friday, March 26th.  Thank-you to all families for your interest, engagement and support of learning at École St. Angela Merici.

 

Chalice Fundraiser

Our hat day/ pyjama Fridays have been very popular and so far, have raised over $1500.00 for Chalice.  The last day to participate and to contribute to this Lenten fundraiser will be Thursday, March 25th.  Last year our school was able to purchase medical equipment for a child that was in need; the organization was able to fully fund the recipient's health interventions with the generous donations from our families.  Un grand merci pour vos contributions!

 

Student pick-ups/ drop-offs

A gentle reminder that parents/ caregivers are not to use either of the staff parking lots to pick up or drop off students.  We have also noticed cars parked in our bus lanes before and after school.  Your cooperation is needed and appreciated to ensure that students are safe during the busy times as students arrive at school in the morning and leave at the end of the day.  Please use the South side of Gillmore Drive, the East side of Maple Ridge Drive or any of the side streets around the school to connect students with their rides.  Thank-you in advance for helping to resolve this ongoing issue at École St. Angela Merici.

 

CSCC

Our Catholic School Community Council continues to meet virtually once a month.  All parents are welcome to attend the monthly meetings, and the agenda/ minutes of each meeting are posted under the CSCC tab on the École St. Angela Merici website.  The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, April 12th at 7:00pm and you can join using this link: Click here to join the meeting

 

Hot Lunch: April 23rd

Mary Brown's and Menchie's are the restaurants that will be providing our next hot lunch.  Orders are due April 16th and can be placed at healthyhunger.ca.

 

2021-2022 Kindergarten Registrations

We continue to accept registrations for Kindergarten for the 2021-2022 school year.  If you or someone you know has a child who will be turning 5 this calendar year, we invite your application to register.  The application is to be completed online and can be accessed here.

 

Lent

We are fortunate to be welcoming back Father Chris and Andrea from Holy Family Parish for Mass next Wednesday, March 24th.  M. Porter's class will be leading the mass and all other classrooms will join in virtually.  As we near the end of Lent we also will be having our next weekly Lenten liturgy Monday, March 22nd (led by Mme Ebenda's class) and our Holy Thursday liturgy on April 1st.  Due to the Easter Break, there is no school for students Friday, April 2nd and the week of April 5th to 9th; students return to school Monday, April 12th.
