Thanks to all the parent volunteers who helped out with track and field day on Friday. It was a great day and we appreciate your support.
This is Catholic Education Week. The theme is Renewing the Promise. We will have prayers and activities throughout the week. Our Open House on Tuesday will be a great opportunity for students to show off their classroom to their parents. We will also have dinner and several activities available as a fundraiser. The evening goes from 5:00 to 7:00 so we hope to see you there. Tickets for the basket raffle will be available during the day on Tuesday for those students who cannot make it that evening. Tickets are $1 each.
On Thursday, the Folk Dance Festival takes place at the Waterloo Recreation Centre in the evening. There has been a group of students and staff working hard to prepare for the evening. Parents who cannot make the evening show are invited to the school show at 1:15. The folk dance group will be performing for students.
There are still about 10 tickets left for the performance of Glee on Friday at the Humanities Theatre for students in grades six to eight. Please sign up at www. schoolcashonline.ca.
Sometime in the next two weeks, a new principal will be named to begin in September. I have decided to retire at the end of the school year. I have truly enjoyed my three years at St. Clement. I want to thank the staff, parents, community and students for their support.
