ARE YOU MOVING???
Please inform the main office as soon as possible if you are moving any time between now and September. All schools are now in the process of creating class lists for September and we need to have information that is accurate so classes are balanced and there are fewer changes once school begins. Thank you for your cooperation.
MISSION DAY 2018
Mission day for this year will be on June 22nd in the afternoon. Information regarding the day has been sent home with your children this past week. As with past years, we will be using the wristband method for Mission Day. This allows for families to purchase their bands ahead of Mission Day through Cash online, and then on June 22, all children can simply enjoy themselves and parents don’t need to worry about students losing money, or how much the overall day could cost. Individual wristbands are $7 each, and families of 3 or more can purchase their wristbands for $20 (total).
We need community support for the following items:
- Colouring books (new or used with pages available for colouring)
- New items (toys, games, books, etc) for our Raffle tables
- Cakes/ cupcakes for the popular Cake Walk

RETURN DATE FOR ALL LIBRARY RESOURCES WAS: FRIDAY JUNE 8TH
With the arrival of June, the library is automatically put into inventory mode. All elementary school libraries across the board ceased circulation on Friday, June 8th.
Please return any overdue books to the library ASAP
Inventory will be taken in the weeks to follow. Thank you for your continued support of the library. It is sincerely appreciated.
Now that spring has finally arrived we ask that you take a moment to review the school Dress code with your child(ren).
At St. Paul Catholic School we believe that students should be able to learn in a safe and caring space that is free of bias and discrimination. We expect that all students will use good judgement and respect for self and others when choosing what to wear. When making choices about what to wear to school, we respect a student’s individuality and have agreed on some basic criteria when it comes to our dress code.
- Students must always wear footwear inside and outside the school. It is preferred that students have both a set of shoes for indoor use AND a separate pair of shoes for outdoor use. In addition, students must wear running shoes to participate in physical education classes.
- Students must refrain from dressing in sexually explicit or revealing clothing. This would include clothing that exposes the midriff, spaghetti straps, strapless tops and low-cut necklines. No undergarments including bra straps and boxers should be showing and skirts and shorts must be mid-thigh length.
- Students are not permitted to wear clothing with wording or graphics which are racist, sexist, advocate violence or are profane or demeaning to another person or towards the school. In addition, clothing with wording or graphics which promote alcohol or illicit drugs and/or is recognized to be associated with gang membership will not be allowed.
- Students will be asked to remove hats when entering the school building. This signals it is time to change from outside behaviour to inside behaviour.
- The Dress Code is in effect for class trips, unless instructed differently.
While the selection of clothing worn at school is the responsibility of parents and student, the school reserves the right of final decision concerning dress and appearance. If a student comes to school wearing clothing which fits into one of the categories listed above, the school may:
- Exclude the student from regular school activities until the situation can be rectified (e.g. T-shirt turned inside out for the remainder of the school day, wearing a school shirt, etc.);
- Contact parents and request replacement clothing if the problem cannot be rectified in the above manner;
- Take further action as appropriate if there is consistent violation by a student regarding inappropriate student dress.
Due to the constantly changing variety of apparel style, the Principal and staff have the authority to determine if a clothing item not specifically covered in this dress code is, in fact appropriate for school attire.
We are asking for your cooperation and support in efforts to maintain a positive school environment which is centered around student achievement and growth. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact the main office.
