September at St. Gerard School

24

Welcome back! We hope everyone has had a relaxing and wonderful summer. The heat has been glorious, but with the crisper mornings and cooler evenings, comes back to school! This can be a time of great excitement for some children, and it can also be a time for anxious feelings. These emotions are normal, so please reassure your school-aged child that what they’re feeling is common. Sometimes a visit to the school and a play on the playground before school start up can help a child feel more at ease in their environment.

The first day back at school is Tuesday, September 5th. After you drop off your child(ren), please meet us in the library for a coffee/tea to connect with our school community.

We are pleased to welcome St Cecelia for the 2017/18 school year. Welcome.

The St Gerard school community came together in June for a family barbecue. It was a complete success. We would like to thank: UFCW Local 401, Glenmore Landing Safeway, Southcentre Safeway, Southland Crossing Safeway, Southport Superstore, Old Dutch, Glenmore Bakery, Oakridge Co-op, Haysboro/Macleod Save-on foods, Old Dutch, and Lassonde for their contributions.

Parent Council hosted a book sale to run concurrently with the BBQ. From the proceeds, our school library will have over $1500 worth of new reading material for our students! Thank you to all families who organized, volunteered and purchased!

Welcome back!
