Reminder: Pickup of Student Personal Items, June 23-26

June 15, 2020

Hello Panthers,

Just a reminder that, classroom teachers have sent out appointment times for you to pick up student personal items at the school (i.e clothes, medications, completed school work, personal items, photos/awards/certificates, report cards). Please only come to the school during your appointed time. The appointed pickup times will occur between Tuesday, June 23 – Friday, June 26 only. 1 parent/guardian from each family will come to the external gym door at the back of the school. 5 families will be permitted entry at one time. Maximum time in the gym is 10 minutes. Items to be returned to the school (textbooks, library/home reading books, etc..) should be labelled with the student name and left on the designated tables in the gym. 

Only 2 options for pickup will be available for each class. If you have more than one child at the school, you will have even more options for pickup times (e.g. 2 times for grade 2 class, 2 different times for grade 5 class, etc..) If you are not able to make one of these times, please consider asking another school family to retrieve your items on your behalf. Families may pick up items for all of their children at the same time (i.e. go to different class areas in the gym).

Access is prohibited to anyone who is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or has had close contact with a confirmed case.  All individuals must complete the self-assessment tool prior to arrival:

The health and safety of our school is a collective responsibility. Physical distancing/ public health protocols must be maintained at all times.

Please take some time to review the other pickup protocols before arriving at the school.

Hi Panthers,

HEADSTART

Headstart is a two day, Gr. 8 orientation program that offers students a sneak peek into the academic, physical and social realm of high school!  The program is still offered in-person with a reduced schedule, with COVID-19 cleaning protocols in effect. Headstart is offered Wed and ThursAug 26/27 OR Mon and TuesAug 31/Sept 1. 

Learn to:

  • Open your lock / find your locker
  • Follow your timetable, find your classes and meet your new peers who will join you – ahead of time
  • Navigate around other parts of the school and how to access people resources
  • How to physical distance in a school setting
  • What does in-class, online and remote learning look like in a high school setting
  • Feel a part of a new school community before the first day of school

NOTE: If the Ministry of Education, Waterloo Catholic District School Board and local Public Health authorities do not deem it safe to host this program, HeadStart could be cancelled with little notice.

Summer Expeditions

Is your child currently in Grade 6, 7 or 8…. going into Grade 7, 8 or 9 this September?  Does your child need help with reading, writing, math and technology skills?  Are there gaps in their learning due to Covid-19 school closures?  Are they losing interest in school because they just aren’t doing as well as they used to?

Explore a free, 10-day learning journey to further develop their literacy and numeracy skills:

  • Coding
  • Writer’s Craft
  • Minecraft for Education
  • MathLibs
  • Google classroom

Summer Expedition 2020 won’t be as interactive as it would be in-person, however the learning will be fun and engaging and educational. Something NEW Every Day!

SUMMER EXPEDITION will start on Monday, July 6, 2020. Please visit the link below for further information and registration. Students do not need to re-register if they have done so already.  Registration closes June 19th.
