Umbrella Project

We continue to explore the Umbrella themes each month and students are starting to build their own personal umbrellas – being able to use various strategies to help them deal with struggles they may face in their lives.  Throughout the month of June, we will be exploring the theme of Hope/Mastery. Take a minute to read the attached article that can be found at the link below. It has some great activities for your children around Hope.

Links for Learning

Each year theWaterloo Region Catholic Schools Foundation provides numerous grants to schools in need for a variety of projects. Over the years most of our schools have benefitted directly from the Foundation’s generosity. The second major fundraiser the Foundation organizes is quickly approaching (Links Fore Learning). We hope you will consider attending the Links Fore Learning in some capacity whether it is to sponsoring the tournament, donating a prize, purchase a ticket to golf, or in choosing the option to join us for lunch. Please see the attachments below for more information.
