February News

Hi! February is a very busy month with a lot of exciting activities planned.

Class Website

We have been experiencing some challenges with setting up our new websites. The company that supported the old ones is not renewing their website subscriptions. We apologize for the delay and the inconvenience that this is causing. We are hopeful to have the new ones up and running as soon as possible. For now, please be sure that you are subscribed to the SCD e-blasts and newsletter for school information and please check your child’s communication bag for communication from the Kindergarten Team.

Liturgical Celebration

We will be celebrating the beginning of Lent next week with Shrove Tuesday Pancakes provided for the whole school. We will also be having an Ash Wednesday Liturgy at 9:30 in our gymnasium.

Valentine's Day

We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day on the 13th instead of the 14th to maintain the solemnity of Ash Wednesday this year. Just a reminder that if your child would like to bring in Valentine cards for his/her classmates, please not address them to specific students, but "to my friend" and then have your child sign their name on them.

Candy-grams

Our Me to We Social Justice Team are selling candy-grams. All proceeds help to fund global initiatives. Candy-grams are $0.50 each or 3 for $1.00. They will be sold on Friday, February 9 and distributed on February 13th. If your child would like to purchase candy-grams for friends or siblings, please send money in a bag/envelope labelled with your child’s name and the list of names that they are being sent to.

Spirit Week Activities

Throughout the week of February 20-23, our school will be celebrating Sister Catherine Donnelly’s birthday (February 26th) with several fun activities.

Monday, Feb., 19 - Family Day – no classes

Tuesday, Feb., 20 - Disco Day

Wednesday, Feb., 21 - Crazy Hair Day

Thursday, Feb., 22 - Super Hero Day

Friday, Feb., 23 - Blue and Green Day-Spirit Day Hockey Game

Sunday, Feb., 25 - SCD Coffee Sunday at St. Mary’s Church (please join us at mass-we will need donations of baked goods as well)

Friday, March 2 - Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss Pyjama Day in Kindergarten


Spirit Day Hockey Game

On February 23rd, the students from Sister Catherine Donnelly will be going to cheer on our school hockey team at East Bayfield Recreation Centre from 1:00 to 2:30. The whole school walks over together and the kindergarten children walk with older students. Please to wear your blue and green clothes to support school spirit. This year, we are playing Mr. Zulian's former school's team - St. Nicholas.

Winter Clothing

With the snowy weather we have had recently, the students have been coming in after recess with wet clothing. Please ensure that your child has one set of extra clothes to change into (eg., socks, pants, mittens). We do not have the room to keep multiple sets of clothing for each child. It is a good idea to leave an extra pair of socks/mittens in a large zip lock bag in your child's backpack that can be changed and then replaced when soggy.

Remember that there will be no school on Monday, February 19th for the Family Day holiday. Enjoy some quality family time!

Thank you!

The Kindergarten Team
