Preparing our Hearts

The grade 3 students will be introducing the Gospel Value of HOPE and the Grandfather Teacher of COURAGE to the rest of the school during the last week before holidays.  Students will be practising the "Kindness" song by Steve Bell over the next week and a half.  Here is a link to the song that we are work on...we have just started practising and WOW, already so beautiful with an even more inspiring message.  We are preparing our hearts during this Advent Season.

Also, a big thank you to everyone who has sent in their hamper items and anyone that will be helping us fill our basket.  We have a family that includes three boys aged 1 1/2, 9 and 10.

Christmas Spirit Day will be on Friday, December 14th.  We are asking that students bring in a donation of $2.00 and wear their festive attire. All of the money collected on the 14th will go towards grocery cards for all of our families.

In regards to our hamper, the items we brainstormed on Monday will be an assortment of gifts, treats, necessities such as warm hats, mitts, socks, soaps, toothpaste, etc.  We are wanting our family to feel loved and cared for when they open their Christmas Hamper.  All items are asked to be sent in by Wednesday or Thursday next week. If for any reason you are not able to send in the item your child chose, please do not hesitate to let me know or if you would prefer to send in an alternate item.  

Thank you in advance for all of your support.

Your Partner in Education,

Mrs. Caluori

Police Check

Police check

We just wanted to let you know that providing you have already
(or have by Thursday) applied for the “vulnerable sector police check”
you are very welcome to volunteer with us for the Nature Walk.
We have been notified that there is a long back log in getting these
completed. Therefore, as long as your application is in we will have you
fill out a quick form here at the school before our outing on Thursday
October 25th. We are asking parents to arrive for 12:45 so that we can
explain the afternoon's events before the students come in from recess.
Please meet at the front office.
If you already have a police check, the office needs a copy of that report.
You can email it to: volunteers@ocsb.ca


*For future thought, if you are planning on volunteering at any other
time of the school year, you will need to allow enough time for the
police check to be completed in order to attend.
