Good Afternoon Bears Families:
The new Umbrella Project Theme for the month of February is Purpose.  In our February Newsletter this a parent letter for you to read about this important skill.  Also in our newsletter you will find an invitation to attend a Parent Night Flyer     which will be held on Thursday, February 20th at St. Anne Catholic School.

Just a reminder that our teachers’ association, OECTA will be holding a one day Job Action on Tuesday, February 4th which means there will be no school for students.  Our extended day program will be open for those students who are registered with the program.

Kindergarten Registration has begun.  For more information please review the following letter: Kindergarten Registration 2020.

On Wednesday, our Bears had the opportunity to discuss Mental Health issue on the annual Bell Let’s Talk Day.  Our students and staff led the school by delivering important messages  to each classroom about supporting each other, being ourselves and that it is okay to ask for help.

St. Bernadette Nutrition for Learning program provides universal access to nutritious food for all students.  During the week of February 3rd to the 7th Nutrition for Learning is running an online fundraiser to raise money to support our school nutrition program.  St.Bernadette  Catholic School needs your support to ensure that the Nutrition for Learning program is available for our students.  Follow the link to make an online donation and support the program at https://www.nutritionforlearning.ca/st-bernadette/
