Weekly Memo January 29th to February 2nd

Good evening,
We are excited to launch our new Spirit Wear with our new name “Bears” later this week.  Our online Spirit Wear Store will open and you will have the opportunity to purchase items for your family.  If you know of someone that wants to order something, but internet is a barrier, please direct them to the office and we can help out! Stay tune for more information.

If you are interested in entering your child(ren) for this Saturday’s Knights of Columbus Free Throw Contest, please contact the school.

Bell Let’s Talk Day is this Wednesday.  Bell will donate 5¢ towards mental health initiatives in Canada by counting every text, call, tweet, Instagram post, facebook video view and Snapchat geofiler.  Our staff, students, families and communities are encouraged to participate. Raising money for Mental Health initiatives is one part of Bell Let’s Talk, but it is mainly about raising awareness and combating the stigma around mental illness. The Bell Let’s Talk Toolkit consists of simple everyday tactics that can be used to break the silence, including a conversation guide, workplace tips, conversation starters to use in school and social media images.  Help increase awareness and decrease stigma around Mental Health.

Have you reviewed with your child(ren) our St. Bernadette Winter Safety 2018 and Winter rules 2018?  If not please do.

Lastly,  our Carizon Support Worker will be offering two presentations.  For more information please view the following link and contact the school.  Coffee Connections St. Bernadette Feb 7th and Mar. 7th .2018.   In addition, we are accepting appointments for JK Registration Flyer.  Please contact the school for more information.
