Bus Concerns/Safety

Bus 186 may be arriving at it stops later than normal tonight.   The bus returned to school so that I could address two students’ behaviours.  There have been several concerns brought to my attention about student behaviour on the buses.  I ask for your support to reinforce with your children that riding the bus is a privilege.  They have the responsibility to make sure their behaviour doesn’t distract the driver or make other students feel uncomfortable or emotionally upset.

Please continue to share your concerns with the school so we may help teach our students safe and responsible behaviour.

Laurier’s School Day Hockey Game

Students in grades 4 to 8 will be attending Laurier’s School Day Hockey Game. It will take place on Thursday, November 30th, 2017. As if a CIAU hockey game weren’t excitement enough, there will many other exciting things happening at this event! What other exciting things, you ask? Well, our school choir will be singing “O Canada”. There will be a Teddy-Bear Toss. Everyone who brings a teddy bear (or stuffed animal) gets to hurl it onto the ice when the Golden Hawks score their first goal. (Don’t worry! They’ll score!) Students are encouraged to bring a new or gently-used stuffed animal to participate in the toss. The tossed stuffed animals will be donated to one of the participating organizations in the Waterloo Region. As well, there will be science stations set up in the halls of the arena so that students can explore some science during intermissions or while the game is on if they can tear themselves away from the exciting hockey game!  Students will be bused to and from the game.  They will be back at school in time for regular dismissal.

Holy Family Christmas Clothing Drive 2017

Hello Parents,

I have received a suggestion from one of our Gr.6 students that socks are the focus item for this years clothing drive.  This is a great idea.  Several community agencies often express the need for those small, but important item.   The donated socks will be given to the Wilmot Community Centre to distribute.  In addition to socks, we will be happy to receive coat donations.  Our sock drive will begin Monday, November 20th. Please send your socks to school with your child(ren).
