Monthly Theme: Hope
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY
We wish all of our amazing Dad’s in our school family a wonderful Father’s Day!
Mission Day was an amazing success! Thanks to all the Panther families who joined us, and to our incredible staff for their dedication to providing a great day for the students.
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.
Library Learning Commons Update
All books should now be returned to the Library – please check at home and return any school items (Library books, school texts, etc) that you may still have. Thanks for your help in keeping pour replacement costs to a minimum.
Pencil Case Project
Once again this year we will be participating in the Pencil Case Project. AS we come to the end of the school year we will be encouraging children who are able to donate their remaining school supplies to the project to assist students in other countries with their learning. Please see the attachment for details.
