By May 26, 2022 No Comments

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your GREAT OLS Walk-a-thon response. The Tie – dyed T-shirts were a great success as the children enjoyed making their own designs. Thank you to Mr. Stocker and our ADST program aides for all their hard work. Check out the pictures @olseagles Instagram page. All monies for prizes are now past due. If you have not yet sent in the monies, please do so ASAP.

PARENT PARTICIPATION CHANGES

As we have now returned to our regular programs for both the school and parish, many of our previous Bingo families will be asked to return to their original participation positions. All parents are required to do 52 hours of Participation per year unless they pay the $2000 non-participation fee. Our participation coordinator, Mrs. Lisa Mannella will be contacting you to schedule your new positions. Thank you for your continued commitment to Catholic Education!

And again, thank you, and welcome to our new nominated P.E.C members for the 2022-2023 school year; Mirella Gargiulo, Anthoni Pasqua, and Laura Tempesta for accepting their nominations.

INTERMEDIATE GARDEN UPDATE

A new fenced area has now been installed on Turner Street for our new Intermediate Garden. The Garden beds will be planted by our students soon.  The goal of this new garden is to allow classes and students to use the green spaces as outdoor classrooms. Again, some parents wish their children to run around the grass areas on Slocan Street. However, as both Turner and Slocan are extremely busy with cars due to Pick-ups, we ask that you DO NOT Have Children running around the front of the school or climbing the trees. We are happy for children to stay on the grass with their parents, however we do not have any large park space for running activities, and the safety of our students is most important. Thank you for understanding!

SCHOOL SUPPLIES (GR. 3 – 7) – SCHOOL START

Last week all children in Gr. 3 – 7 brought home a list of supplies that will be required on the first day of school in September. You are not obligated to purchase these supplies through School Start. However, if you choose to not use School Start you will need to ensure you have all the items listed on the order form for the first day of school in September.

School Start is offering early ordering incentives. Please see the attached flyer.

JUNE 27 – JULY 3, 2022 – NEAT UNIFORMS FOCUS WEEK!
Please check OLS website regarding information about our school focus week, online buying procedures and promotional deals.   Uniforms should be replaced every year due to children outgrowing them or wear and tear.

AFTERSCHOOL PICK-UP

Due to the warmer weather, the children will now be spending more time outside. Therefore, the gate to the school parking lot will not be opened until 2:30 p.m. Please do not arrive earlier than 2:30 p.m. to pick-up your child(ren) and wait at the gate as this creates a backlog of traffic and a nuisance for the neighbourhood.
