School Play and Monday is a normal school day

Happy Friday everyone!

Next week our Thunder Productions crew is pleased to present “The Wizard of Oz”. Any community members interested in seeing the show are welcome to buy tickets at the school office or at the door of the theater, tickets are $10. There are 2 evening shows, Wednesday and Thursday night at 7:00 pm at the Registry Theater.

This coming Monday there is a strike in the public elementary schools; this does not have anything to do with our board or our schools. Monday is a normal school day for us.

Have a good weekend,

Paul

School is running as normal – OECTA Work to Rule

Good morning everyone,

I am writing to offer some clarity on what is happening at Catholic schools in our community and across the province this week. If you dropped off your kids today, or are picking them up after school you would have or will see an information picket around the school – this is an opportunity for the teachers to share information with parents and community members.

As part of the ongoing central bargaining process involving the Ontario government and education workers across the province, the association representing our teachers – the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA) – indicated that if a collective agreement wasn’t reached over the weekend, that starting Monday, January 13, 2020 teachers will no longer be performing a variety of administrative duties. A list of specific duties being withdrawn can be found at:

http://www.catholicteachers.ca/OECTA/media/pdfs/News/2020/jan/NR_2019-018.pdf

This withdrawal of services will not impact the safety of our school and, with the exception of preparation for EQAO testing, direct services provided to our students will be unaffected.

Co-curricular activities (clubs, field trips, special events, etc.) will not be impacted by this withdrawal of services at this time.

We do remain hopeful the two sides can come to a fair and respectful agreement that serves the best interests of our students.

We will continue to update you as this situation evolves; please know that the school is open and running daily.

Paul

Lost and Found last call

Good afternoon,

Our Lost and Found items have been on display for almost 2 weeks, the number of items collected has been small.  We will have the tables set up until the end of the day Friday; after that the remaining items will be donated and some will be washed/kept for students in need at our school.

Please ask your children to take another look at the table before the end of the day Friday.

Thanks,

Paul Gladding
