3.2.22

We have shared the following sensitive information with our staff and teachers. We hope that by sharing these resources, you will be able to address questions your children may have regarding the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
 
Dear Staff,
 

With the Russian invasion of Ukraine dominating our news recently, I wanted to share some resources that may help you in and outside the classroom. Please feel free to share them with parents as you deem appropriate.

It is understandable that our children may be curious, ask questions, or feel nervous/anxious/frightened by what they are hearing and seeing.

Finally, keeping in mind our school’s commitment to Catholic values, you might consider supporting Ukrainians who need help during this time. The International Committee of the Red Cross and the International Rescue Committee provide some simple things you can do, and taking some action can help your children feel a sense of agency and hope during this time of uncertainty.  
A few new items this week:
  • Upcoming March Events
  • Exciting fundraisers from our new HSA! (Pi Day, Bagel Breakfast and Pizza Kits). See attached fliers.
Some important reminders:
  • Dress Down Passes – please remember Dress Down passes do not excuse children from gym.  If it is a gym day and your child chooses to use their “Dress Down pass,” they still must be dressed to participate in gym.
  • Water Bottles – The nice weather is slowly approaching, so please ensure your children have a refillable water bottle from home.  We have a filtered fountain for students to use.
  • Registration is still open for new and returning students
  • B6T forms are due by March 7th.
Don’t forget, the following fundraisers are still running, it is not too late to get involved:
  • Photo Fundraiser
  • Fish and Chips (proceeds benefit the St. Leo’s Sports Group)
