Dear Parents and Guardians,
Another great week of learning has come to an end. I’d like to thank you for supporting your children in attending their classes, completing their work and assisting the efforts of the educators to deliver lessons. As we are ending this school year, we have had confirmation that remote learning will continue until the end of the end of June.
June 4- PD day
June 18th- Grade 6 Virtual Leave Taking Ceremony
June 24th- Last Day of School
June 25th- Report Cards posted on parent portals
We are waiting for guidelines from the government and Ottawa Public Health to see about cohorting, social distancing, etc. As soon as we have more information, we will make sure to share it with you. In the meantime, if you know someone waiting to register or if you are planning on moving to another school or coming to St. Clare, please contact the school and OCSB as soon as possible as we are working on the transition for next September.
In closing, just a reminder that Friday, June 4th, is a provincial PD Day to work on assessment and reporting. There will be no school for students and no school work will be assigned to students on that day.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. Our emails and voicemail are monitored frequently (Clare@ocsb.ca 613-834-6334).
Have a safe and wonderful weekend.
Mental Health and Well-Being
Here is a good article from Children’s Mental Health Ontario that may assist you and your family: Tips to Support Your Child’s Mental Health Through Remote Learning.
FROM YOUR SCHOOL COUNCIL
Thank You for supporting and/or being a part of this year’s School Council. It's been quite the school year and we've appreciated hearing your voices and seeing your participation virtually throughout it all!
From a Virtual Pumpkin Carving Contest, Christmas Care Packages, Fundraisers, an insightful Cyber Safety presentation, and many more accomplishments to note, these were all made possible by the volunteer efforts of your School Council and support by the St. Clare Community!
For those of you with in-person students returning to St. Clare next September, please consider joining the 2021-2022 School Council. Being involved has so many benefits for us not only as Parents, but to our children and their school community!
Council elections will be held in September. For more information on the positions, take a look at: St.Clare Council 2021-2022 Info and feel free to connect with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or on our Facebook page.
Thank You once again Families, Teaching Team, and Mme. Mitton!
Your 2020-2021 St.Clare School Council
