Why Attendance Matters
You will begin to see increased messaging regarding school attendance. This is a Waterloo Catholic DSB priority, and we have been asked to share specific messages with our school communities across a variety of platforms.
Please click on THIS LINK for information on the impact of lates and absences.
Remember the morning bell rings at 9:20am, and the afternoon begins at 1:05pm. Students are expected to enter the school with their class; otherwise, the student is marked late.
Please be mindful that each interruption to a classroom is a disruption to the learning environment for all.
Angel Day: Thursday December 5th
Our school community will be carrying on the tradition of Angel Day on Thursday December 5th. Our volunteer committee is hard at work prepping for this special day, and will gladly accept additional volunteers. Please contact Mrs. McGlynn in the main office if you would like to join our committed group of volunteers on the morning of Thursday December 5th.
Angels in Action: Project Warmth
As our school community begins our Advent journey, the St. Agnes Pastoral team and Social Justice team invite families to actively participate in our Angels in Action: Project Warmth campaign. This year, we will be collecting donations of NEW hats, mitts and socks for all ages. Our goal is to fill the display cases in the front foyer with these donations from November 25 to December 13. Our donations will go to the St. Vincent de Paul Society at St. Agnes parish. This is such a necessary need in our community so please give generously.
Spiritual Development day: December 6th
Friday December 6th is the Spiritual Development Day across the Waterloo Catholic District School Board. This means no school for students, and the Extended Day program is not being offered at any schools. Our entire system will be participating a variety of faith based activities for the day.
N4L November 25th – November 29th: multigrain Cheerios, melba toast, penguin crackers, multigrain vegetable crackers, apple sauce (no sugar added), carrots, dates, raisins, apples.
Please note: cheese strings & yogurt tubes will only be served in select classrooms due to food allergies.
Did you know…?
#WWJD: What Would Jesus Do is a phase we use on a daily basis with our students. As a Catholic community, we are called to reflect on our actions, our words, and our choices through the lens of our greatest teacher and role model: Jesus. We have made a commitment this year to recognize the positive deeds by all staff and students on a daily basis. We are taking the time to acknowledge even the smallest of these deeds with a WWJD ticket; this is hand written by a staff member or student, and presented to the recipient in person. When we take the time to notice and praise the goodness and kindness of others we make our community stronger.
Our focus on WWJD as a school wide theme is directly connected to the Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations. Each month, we focus on one of these Expectations through student generated announcements, bulletin boards, and recognition of how we can better live our lives like Jesus.
