Good Afternoon Griffons Families!sunset-3679736_960_720.jpg

We have had an amazing start to the 2021-2022 school year!  We are so grateful to see our students happy and excited to be back at school, and parents we thank you for your continued involvement, engagement, and communication.  It was wonderful to see so many of you over our staggered start days. Please read the following information items as we continue to get settled into the new school year:

September CSCC Meeting

All École St. Angela Merici parents are invited to attend our Catholic School Community Council meetings.  A reminder that the first one of the school year is Monday, September 13th @ 7:00pm.  You are invited to join the CSCC in person in our resource centre (mask required) or virtually.  Each meeting's agenda, minutes and virtual links can be found on the CSCC tab of our school's website.  A link to Monday's meeting was also shared last Wednesday in an email from the school. 

 

Be sure to follow the CSCC on Facebook- see you Monday evening at our next meeting!

 

Parent Volunteers: Extra-Curricular Activities

Thanks to our devoted teacher volunteers and our eager students we are gearing up to offer a full slate of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities this year.  Currently Mme Dornstauder is coaching Girls' Aerial Football and Mme Paysen is coaching Boys' Aerial Football. 

Parent volunteers are needed to help transport players to the games; parents, if you are available to help you will need to submit a current Criminal Record Check (please take this form to the Regina City Police as proof of volunteer) and you will also need to complete an Automobile Authorization Form . Please submit this form to the office by email or dropped off directly. Parent drivers and students travelling in the vehicle must be masked at all times. 

Our boys' team plays Monday, September 13th and our girls' team play on September 14th so the timeline to complete this paperwork is short.  We appreciate your help in supporting our Griffons and please let us know if you require any assistance getting the required documentation.

 

RCS Ukrainian Program

Students interested in taking part in RCS's Ukrainian Language Program are invited to register before Monday, September 13th.  This program is run after school hours at St Matthew School.  Please see here for more information

 

Student Permissions and Student Demographic Forms

Please ensure that the Student Demographic Forms are completed, signed, and returned by Friday, September 10th.  This ensures that student information, including parent/ emergency contact information, is entered and is up to date.  Thank-you to all parents who have completed the online Student Permissions form; if you require the link to this form it can be accessed here .

 

 Hot Lunch September 23rd: McDonald's

ALL student in Grades 1 to 8 as well as our Kindergarten Group "B" students (blue group) can order lunch through Healthy Hunger; the lunch will be prepared and delivered following COVID-19 guidelines. 

 Hot lunches are optional, and orders can be placed online at healthyhunger.ca.  Deadline to order September's hot lunch is Thursday, September 16th.  Unfortunately, late orders cannot be accepted as all orders are handled by the Healthy Hunger website.  A small profit from each lunch is earned and supports school and classroom activities that are not covered by our school budget. 

 

Student Pickups/ Dropoffs

Another huge thank-you to our parents/ family members for not parking in the staff parking lots to pick up/ drop off your child(ren).  We also thank you for having your children walk to the corner to cross the street and to not cross in between busses and parked vehicles; We appreciate your help in keeping our students safe during the busy times before and after school.

If your child(ren) is/are bussed to school and you have questions or concerns please contact our bussing contractor, FirstStudent, at reginaschoolbus@firstgroup.com or by phone at 306.721.4499.
