FIRST WEEK SUCCESS!
Our Angel Community had an AWESOME first week of school. A huge Thank You goes out to our fantastic staff and students for making it so memorable! Based on what we saw during our first week, we cannot wait to see what the rest of the year has in store for us! Way to go Angels!
SMILING FACES ALL AROUND!
SAVE THE DATE – OPEN HOUSE AND MEET THE TEACHER NIGHT
Everyone is welcome to come to our Open House on Tuesday September 17th. Classrooms will be open for visits and teachers will be in their classrooms starting at 5:30 to 6:15 to meet parents and informally discuss curriculum expectations. From 6:15 – 7:00, classrooms will be closed and everyone will be invited to participate in the festivities outside. Pizza/Ice Cream will be available for purchase. We look forward to seeing everyone on the 17th!
Just a reminder that all Kindergarten students will be in class on Monday as our regular schedule begins. It was great seeing all of our new Year 1 students come in last week with their parents and joining their Year 2 friends. What an exciting time for our newest Angels!
NUTRITION FOR LEARNING
St. Michael School is very fortunate to be able to offer the Nutrition for Learning program again this year. Nutrition for Learning provides our school with healthy snacks each day. The program will begin the first week of October, so please be sure to pack your child enough snacks until we start receiving our food. Soon you will see the Nutrition for Learning Toonie Postcards coming home with your child. Please consider taping a toonie to the postcard to help fund our schools program. We appreciate all of your support!
ALLERGIES, MEDICATIONS AND MEDICAL ALERTS
If your child has an allergic reaction to any food or insect, please contact the main office and ask for an Administration of Medication: Epipen form. We ask that all children who require Epipens carry them on their persons (not in their backpacks) at all times. In addition, we ask that all children bring a spare Epipen to school in the event of an anaphylactic reaction and a second dose is required.
If your child has an illness, a medical condition or a physical disability that may require monitoring/awareness/a special response in an emergency, you are asked to contact the main office. We will send a Medical Alert form home. We will also request a meeting to develop a protocol for your child while at school or at a school related event.
According to Board policy, school staff or volunteers should not be involved with the administration of medication. However, the Board recognizes that on occasions, schools will need to be responsible for students who are receiving medication, or who under certain circumstances may require an emergency response to a severe allergic reaction. If your child requires such medication, please contact the main office and ask for an Administration of Oral Medication form. This from MUST be completed before any medication may be administered!
