We hope this finds you well. We have six items for you today:
Grade 8 Grad
Our grade 8s will be having a virtual graduation ceremony next week. In lieu of a live sendoff, some younger students have elected to make “Congratulations grads”/”good luck”/”thanks!”/”hooray!”/”we will miss you!” signs or drawings, that we will put together to post online and send out as an electronic collage. Please help us with this project by encouraging your K-7 students to draw a picture/write a note to the grads! Please snap a photo of the picture/sign and send via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. No last names on pictures please, but do let us know what grade the child is in. Also, please include in your email “I give permission for CSPC/St Brigid to email and/or post my child’s work online”. Ideally we would have these by Saturday, June 20, so we can put them together before the grad ceremony, but if more time is needed we can send out a version of all notes/signs received by June 24th.
Parent Council (CSPC) meeting TONIGHT (June 18)
The last parent council meeting of the year will be held tonight via Zoom, from 7-9 PM. If you wish to attend remotely, please follow this link to sign up. You will receive an email with a link to join the meeting from Ms. Blanchet later today.
Pickup of Items at the School
If you were unable to pick up your child(ren)’s items during the timeslot assigned to their grade this week, there will be another opportunity next week (stay tuned for day). Any items left after that will be stored at the school until September.
TCDSB Distance Learning Survey
The TCDSB is requesting that parents complete a distance learning survey to provide feedback about their child’s experience since mid-March. The survey is available until June 26, and you can access it here. Please take a few minutes to fill it out as it will inform how distance learning may look in the future.
Have you come across any great activities/shows that are in line with the curriculum of your child’s grade, or that would be of general interest? If so, please send the info along to this email address! We will try to post it on a new “ideas” page on the CSPC website, organized by grade. Ideally these ideas would be things that don’t require expensive supplies or much parental support, so kids could have the potential to do them somewhat independently on shortened/cancelled camp days this summer.
Pizza Update Just a reminder that the money raised for cancelled pizza days will be rolled over to next year, for all of those other than grade 8s as well as those who have separately requested a refund. You can see your refund in Munchalunch now; the system will be closed over the summer and reset in the fall. If you wish to donate your refund to the St. Brigid 100th anniversary celebration coming
