Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

Please see the wonderful prayer shared below by the board today.

 

Let us be there for each other!  Our staff will continue to reach out to our families, sharing some learning opportunities with you for your children.  Do reach out to them with any questions you might have. As more information becomes available, it will be shared to you via the board or our staff.  Feel free to follow our twitter account ( @StBrAndreOCSB ) where many great ideas, information, etc. is being shared.

 

In all honesty, we miss your children' laughter, their smiling faces, and our whole community.  Our prayers to everyone as we continue to manage through these difficult times. 

 

God Bless,

 

Sean Crookshank

Principal

HALLOWEEN DANCE

The Family Halloween Dance is tomorrow, October 24th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Thanks to all the parents that have volunteered.  Any cupcake donations may be brought to the dance and taken to the side room in the gym. All students must be accompanied by parents.


DRESS PURPLE

The Children's Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) annually dedicates the month of October to spreading awareness about the Duty to Report and the community’s responsibility to “Speak up for Kids.” The campaign urges community members to report suspicions that a child is being abused or neglected, or at risk of being abused or neglected. Marked by Dress Purple Day on October 24, 2019, the campaign's main goal is to keep children and youth safe by increasing public knowledge of child abuse and neglect and outline the steps to take to eradicate it.  We encourage staff and students to dress in purple on October 24, 2019.


PIZZA DAY

The first Pizza Day is Friday, October 25th.  for those students who have already ordered. There are no late orders at this point. Thanks to our parent volunteer, Kendrah Greer, for once again taking on this job.
