End of January Update

Good Morning Everyone:

Mother Nature is making herself known to us.....some real wild weather. Hopefully we can see some blue skies soon.

A few things to share:

* Thank you for signing up for School Day. We recognize that this transition to an online payment system will have its' challenges for all involved. Over time, when we all get used to using School Day, it will become second nature.

FYI - currently approximately 32 of our 41 elementary schools and 5 of our 9 high schools in Simcoe Muskoka Catholic are using School Day. The remaining schools in our Board will be transitioning to School Day later this year or early next.

* Our grade 8 parents and guardians are invited to our library this Thursday evening to discuss graduation and the year end class trip to Kamp Kandalore. A representative of the camp will be here to give us an overview of the camping experience they provide for our students. The meeting will begin at 5:30 pm, Thursday, Jan. 31.

* Our St. Catherine of Siena Barrie Colts night at the Barrie Molson Center is scheduled for Thursday, February 7 at 7:30 pm. The Colts are scheduled to play Owen Sound. Tickets can be purchased online on our School Day site....a memo was sent out last week. Tickets are $21 each with $6 being donated back to the school by the Colts. The last day to purchase the tickets is this Thursday, Jan. 31 at midnight. #0 of our students will sing the National Anthem....and our tickets are typically all in the same area of the arena making it a nice community event.

* This Friday, February 1st is a PD day. No classes for our students.

* The first term achievement report cards for each student are scheduled to go home on Friday, Feb. 22. If you would like to meet with your child's teacher to discuss the report, please request the meeting through a note in your child's agenda.

Have a good week.
