DEAR PARENTS
Congratulations to our Grade 5, 6 and 7 Boys’ soccer teams who all qualified for the CISVA Big 8 Soccer Finals!! Again, we are very proud of our students in all that they do!

CLASSROOM BIRTHDAYS UPDATE!
We will now be allowing commercially prepared class lunches and/or treats for birthdays. However, at this time, we will NOT allow any home-made food items. No parents or delivery drivers are allowed to enter the school. Please contact the classroom teacher in advance as any food distribution MUST be supervised and administered by them. They alone will have the ability to ensure the safety of food transfers. Parents who do not wish special food lunches and/or treats to be received by their child may indicate their wishes to their child’s classroom teacher.

OCTOBER 31, 2021 – FAMILY MASS – 11:30 A.M.
The Family Mass will held be on Sunday, October 31st at 11:30 a.m. We invite all families from OLS to celebrate the Family Mass. This is a great way for our families to attend and participate in the required Sunday liturgy.

OCTOBER 29, 2021 – HALLOWEEN BASH
The Halloween Bash will be held on Friday, October 29th during school hours. The ticket order form went home last week. The Halloween Committee will be setting up the Halloween Bash in the gym for each class to take part in during their gym class. Students will have the opportunity to play carnival games, Halloween bingo and the famous lollipop pull. We are going to have plenty of prizes and a treat bag for everyone. Please remember this is a kids’ only event and no outside class treats are allowed. Thank you to all our sponsors, and our amazing Halloween Committee who have managed to organize a fun yet safe Halloween Bash for our students!

Also, we have decided to keep the raffle and the Halloween Bash separate. This year we will be doing a Black Friday Raffle that will go home on Friday, October 29th and the draw will be held on Friday, November 26th. More details to come!

OCTOBER 29, 2021 – COSTUME DAY
Students may come to school dressed in Halloween costumes or colours (e.g., orange and black) on Friday, October 29th. PLEASE DO NOT come dressed in scary costumes or costumes with weapons to school. Also, due to the mask mandate, no other face coverings are allowed.

REMINDERS!!

PLEASE NOTE! PARENT DRIVERS
If you plan on driving students to and/or from school events you must fill out a Volunteer Driver Form (Volunteer Driver Form) and provide a copy of your current driver’s license and insurance. Driver forms must be completed each year, so all previously signed forms are now void.   Also, all drivers and non-family students MUST wear masks and declare if they are non-vaccinated to their riders’ parents, (as we do not want to increase exposure risks). Please only volunteer if you can communicate to the family that you are helping to drive in advance. Unfortunately, the bus is not always available for all events as many programs and grades overlap their needs for rides. Thank you for helping to ensure all students continue to stay safe!

NEW UPDATED WEBSITE – SCHOOL NOTICES
We are requesting all families to visit our website (www.ourladyofsorrows.ca) if you are looking for information regarding any of our school’s extracurricular activities. All notices will be posted under the ‘Students’ drop-down menu by grade or applicable activity. Please refer to our website, before contacting the school. We thank you for your cooperation.
