Terry Fox run at St. Clement

The 2018 -2019 Terry Fox run at St. Clement Catholic Elementary School was another great success! Students and staff ran / walked in support of the Terry Fox Foundation on the sunny warm day and then enjoyed a sweet treat upon completion.  St. Clement school raised a total of $727.00! These funds will be going towards a wonderful cause: cancer research.

Thank you to all of the St. Clement Families for their support!

Wear Orange On Monday in support of Every Child Matters

Orange shirt day (or wear orange) is an annual event that started in 2013 to recognize the legacy of Residential school system for First Nations, Metis and Inuit families and communities.  It is a show of support and understanding of the history of the school system that impacts many First Nations, Metis and Inuit people today. 

The phrase “Every Child Matters” reminds everyone that children are such an important and integral part of our communities and that they are our future generations of change makers.  By wearing  orange, we have an opportunity to bring awareness to the history of residential schools and to stand up against other injustices that may impact our children/students.

Please support this event by wearing orange on Monday at St. Clement School!

St. Clement Open House Success

St. Clement Open House was a HUGE success. We were very excited about the great energy and smiling faces that joined us to meet the teacher and build community. It was a great turn out and it was thrilling for me, the new principal, to meet some of our families. A special thank you to school council for assisting with our night and to Mrs. Barton for organizing the food for the night!

Open House Meet the Teacher

It is meet the teacher night on Tuesday September 25th from 5 PM until 7 PM.  Come for a slice of pizza and meet your child’s teacher.

Wednesday Sept. 26th

  • Hot Lunch Day : New Orleans Pizza
  • Student Picture Day with LifeTouch
  • Rowan’s Day – Rowan Stringer loved rugby. A competitive and keen athlete, she was captain of her high school’s team. Tragically, in May 2013, 17-year old Rowan died as the result of head injuries she sustained while playing rugby. In the week before her last game, Rowan was hit twice while playing, likely sustaining a concussion after each blow. Her concussions went unreported, and she continued to play. Rowan suspected something wasn’t right—she texted a friend about her condition and used Google to search for information about concussions. When she was hit again in her final game, Rowan suffered what is known as Second Impact Syndrome— catastrophic swelling caused by a second injury to a brain still healing from previous trauma. Rowan collapsed on the field on May 8, 2013, and died four days later.  On Rowan’s Day, students will receive messaging about concussions from their classroom teacher.

A reminder that if you would like to order a hot lunch, your order is due at noon on Sunday.

All ordering is done through Lunchbox Orders. The contact is Melissa Roberts melissa.roberts@lunchboxorders.com.
