Waste Reduction Week - October 17 to 23

posted Oct 12, 2016, 11:26 AM by Kim Jimmo

Waste Reduction Week in Canada: October 17 – 23, 2016

Waste Reduction Week in Canada is a national environmental campaign that builds awareness around issues of sustainable and responsible consumption, encourages choice for more environmentally responsible products/services, and promotes actions that divert more waste from disposal and conserve natural resources.

St-Clare Catholic School is very happy to be participating in this wonderful campaign. We can make a difference by bringing litterless lunches every day during the week of October 17-23. We will make an effort to recycle our papers, plastics and old markers. We will try to reduce our waste and reuse.  St-Clare is proud to be a green school!

United Way

As you are aware, the United Way/Centraide of Ottawa-Carleton has launched its 2016 Campaign to support those in need in the Ottawa area. United Way’s theme for 2016 is “Together, we are possibility”. United Way/Centraide supports many programs in over 100 member agencies. This year, the staff and students of St. Clare school are called to make a conscious decision in taking an active part in the community by continuing to care for those in need. This supports our Board’s theme, “Sent to be the Good News.” We have designated three days, October 21, 28 and Nov. 4, to raise money for our neighbours from the Ottawa area who are in need. Although we ask that students donate a loonie or a toonie for our special days, they can donate anything they can afford to participate in these activities. Students can do chores in order to earn money to donate to this cause.

We have news that is just ducky.   The St. Clare School Council is now on Twitter.  That’s something worth crowing about!   Find out what’s going on with events, when things are due, or simply what we’ve been up to with helping school programming.  We would be happy as a lark if everyone at the school would follow us on Twitter @stclarecouncil

By the way, why did the poultry farmer become a school teacher? 
So he could grade his eggs!
