25. October, 2021Weekly Buzz

I realized while writing the last Buzz that I had a few items to communicate to our entire community so I am doing that in this email. 

First, I am happy to announce that Mrs. Rodriguez has agreed to return as our Assistant Principal and will be working with the school’s leadership team on curriculum matters and social justice programs, among other duties!

Next, after meeting with our school leadership team throughout the first quarter and talking with many parents, I have recommended to Monsignor Smith a change to the school calendar by increasing Thanksgiving and Christmas vacations and he has agreed that we can remove the half days at the start of these breaks.  Therefore, there is NO SCHOOL on Wednesday, November 24, nor on Thursday, December 23.  The attached school calendar is updated to reflect those changes.

Finally, please remember the following important dates in the upcoming weeks:

  • Thursday, October 28, is a FREE Fall colors TAG day for Grades 3 to 8.  The children in Grades PK-4 to Grade 2 can wear costumes.
  • Friday, October 29, is a Teacher Collaboration Day with NO SCHOOL for students.
  • Monday, November 1, is All Saints Day so school mass moves to that day next week.  Saint House information will be shared at this time. 
  • The first quarter ends next Friday, November 5.
  • Conferences will be on Thursday and Friday, November 11 and 12.  Teachers will provide the virtual links soon.
  • The first quarter Awards Ceremony will be done virtually during Wednesday morning prayer on November 17.

Please let me know if you have any questions on the above and have a great afternoon.

Sincerely,

Mr. Ewanciw
