This Week at St. Clement Oct 16 -20

The Fitness Frenzy activities will take place this Wednesday for all classes except Kindergarten as they were able to complete their activities last week.  Thanks to all the parents who came out to help.  We are hoping for better weather this week.  Activities this week will include lacrosse, karate, dance, ringette, hockey training (The Grind) and activities run by the St. David leadership class.

We have raised over $6400 from the Fitness Frenzy.  Thanks to all who donated prizes for the event.

This is another plea for new members of School Council.  We are down three members from last year for various reasons and would like more members.  Our next meeting is next Tuesday, October 24 at 6:30 in the library.  Please consider joining this important group.

Fitness Frenzy and Logo Contest

The weather does not look good for the Fitness Frenzy tomorrow so we are going to postpone most of the outdoor activities until next Wednesday and run some of the indoor activities for the younger grades tomorrow.  Envelopes with pledges are still due by tomorrow and we will go ahead with the prize draws on Thursday.  The Oktoberfest lunch is still a go.

On Friday,  I introduced a School Logo contest to the students.  I have included some of the old logos and contest rules.  We have many new students here and this is an opportunity to create some new spirit wear.  Once the logo is chosen, we will make spirit wear available for all (in time for Christmas).

Wednesday Oktoberfest Lunch

Wednesday is both the Fitness Frenzy and the Oktoberfest Lunch.  All money for the fundraiser is due in to the office by Wednesday.  Parents will need to order the Oktoberfest Lunch if they wish by this Sunday at noon at www.lunchboxorders.com .  Have a great Thanksgiving Day weekend.

This Week at St. Clement Oct 2 – 6

The Turkey Shoot takes over the school this week for students in grades four to eight.  The competition will take place all week at recess with the finals on Friday at 2:30.  Good luck to all competitors.

The grade eights will compete in the ultimate frisbee tournament Thursday afternoon at RIM park.

We will have a Liturgy celebrating Our Lady of the Rosary Friday at 12:45 in the Church.  Guests are always welcome to join us for Liturgies in the Church.

Pledge forms for the Fitness Frenzy went home Friday so that students have two weekends to collect pledges.  They will get one ticket in the prize draw for every ten dollars that they raise.  There will be early bird draws on Friday, October 6 for students who have handed in money.  We will also have draws on the 12th or 13th after all money is handed in.  Thanks to all who have already donated prizes.  We are still accepting donations of prizes for the draw.  The Fitness Frenzy is on Wednesday, October 11.

Fitness Frenzy Fundraiser and Prize Request

On Wednesday, Oct 11, we will host our major fundraiser, the Fitness Frenzy.  Students will have an opportunity to experience several different fitness activities.  Pledge sheets will be going home on Friday, September 29.  Prize draws will be made on October 6 and 11.  We would like donations of prizes to encourage donations.  It would be nice if prizes could match our theme, ie. Rangers tickets, balls, yoga mats, etc.  Please drop them off in the main office.  Thanks for your support.

Nutrition For Learning

We here at St. Clement Catholic School, are blessed to be a part of the Nutrition for Learning Program. Our program consists of a morning meal every Tuesday and Thursday morning. We provide each student and staff with one protein, one grain and a fruit or vegetables. Our program is all inclusive, meaning everyone is provided with these three snacks. If your child(ren) come home with lunch food left over, this may be the reason why. If you would like to make a donation to this program, there is a link below. Any donation over $20, you will be provided with a tax receipt from the Nutrition for Learning Program. For more information on the Nutrition for Learning Program or if you have any questions or comments, feel free to our contact program coordinator, Stacey Mayer, through the school. If you are looking to donate your time by being a volunteer, you can speak with Stacey Mayer.  Stacey would like to thank all of those who donated a toonie to the Nutrition for Learning Program, in September. Nutrition for Learning will be starting on Thursday September 28th.

Our first School Council Meeting takes place this Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. in the school library.  All are welcome to join and it would be great to see representation for the Wellesley community.

Our School Photo Day is on Wednesday.  We will begin with the kindergarten and grade one students first followed by the intermediates as many will be at 3-pitch in the afternoon.  Class photos will be taken so it would be great if all could be in attendance for the photos.

Hot lunches begin this Wednesday and continue on Wednesdays.  Please order at  www.lunchboxorders.com. Thanks to Tracy Brenner for all her work on organizing the lunches.

Our annual Terry Fox Run will take place this Thursday at 2:10.  We will begin with a short assembly in the gym followed by a walk/run around the block.  Students are asked to contribute Toonies for Terry.  All are welcome to join us.

Don’t forget the St. Clement Church Hot Ham Supper taking place this Sunday at the St. Clement Community Centre.  More information can be found on this website.

Mad Science were in on Thursday to do a demonstration to the students about their grade 1 to 6 lunch program.  Flyers were sent home but I have attached both pages of the flyer below if you would like more information.

This Week at St. Clement

We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the Open House on Tuesday.  Pizza will be served in the gym between 5:00 and 6:00 with classroom visits to follow.  There will be an opportunity to donate to a Caribbean Hurricane relief fund where the pizza is being served.  Thanks to School Council for providing the pizza.

This is a Sacrament year for students in grade two.  We sent home a form today to find out your intentions about First Reconciliation and Communion.  We would like to meet the parents in the library at 6:00 at the Open House on Tuesday to provide information.

The calendar on the school website can be difficult to access for some parents. The Information Technology department at the school board is aware of the problem and are working on a solution. I will let you know when that happens.

Friday is a Professional Activity Day and there will not be school for the students.  Enjoy the long weekend with your children.

A representative will be here from Mad Science to put on a demonstration to grades one to six students on Thursday afternoon.  Parents will have an option of enrolling their child in a lunch program.  More information will come home on Thursday.

Thank you to those who did the “start up” school forms on Cash Online.  For those of you who didn’t do the forms online, a reminder note will be going home and it will be reopened for you to finish the online permissions.  We would like everyone to use this program, when doing permission forms, school trips and  purchases, to help us save paper.

Finally for those of you already tired of making lunches, our hot lunch program will begin on Wednesday, Sept 27 with a pizza lunch.  Parents who wish to participate will need to order online at www.lunchboxorders.com
