Retrieving Personal Items from school

The past 3 months have been incredibly trying for all of us. Your patience during the COVID shutdown has been greatly appreciated. We are currently working on a plan to distribute students’ personal belongings while abiding by the guidelines recently set out for our school board by Public Health.

Please keep Wednesday June 17th and Thursday June 18th available to retrieve your child’s belongings. Families will be booking a 10 minute appointment. This time frame will allow for the retrieval of belongings regardless of the number of students in a family. We will communicate to all members of our community the specific details of the protocol to allow for the safe distribution of personal items in a separate communication.

Healthy Schools

We have fantastic news to share! Our Healthy Schools team, led by Mrs. McLeod, has earned its first OPHEA Healthy Schools certification…GOLD!!! This year, we added a number of new student focussed leadership opportunities to the existing activities at St. Agnes. Our focus on mental wellness has served all our students and staff well. Thank you to our Healthy Schools student leaders for the work you did all year long; we are very grateful for your leadership and dedication. We look forward to continuing this important work in the next school year.

Joyful June calendar

We hope you are enjoying the daily reminders and check ins that are built into our School Website calendar. These daily prompts come to you from actionforhappieness.org You are able to download, print, or subscribe to these calendars for your own personal reference.

Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectation

The focus for the Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectation for the month of June is “I am a lifelong learner!” Teachers are encouraging students to share some of their new learning and skills developed during distance learning. We know that some friends have learned to tie their shoes, ride a bike, swim, etc. We are looking forward to seeing pictures and videos of these milestones so please send these in to your teacher!

Vice Principal news!

Our school community continues to grow and we are excited to welcome our newest Flames in the fall. In addition to meeting all our new students, we will be welcoming a Vice Principal: Mrs. Amanda Kuntz. We are really looking forward to introducing her to our fantastic school community. Stay tuned for more updates.
