Bulldog Bulletin – September 28, 2020

Terry Fox Run/Walk

This year marks the 40th Anniversary of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope.  Unfortunately, we are not able to hold a school-wide event as in years past; however, we feel it is important for our school community to remember Terry’s legacy and what he set out to achieve, as well as support cancer research.

To that end, each of our twenty-three classes will be taking part in their own class Terry Fox run/walk the week of September 28th.

St. Kateri will be collecting donations using SchoolCashOnline (if you haven’t already done so, please sign up at http://wcdsb.schoolcashonline.com/ ).  Donations will be forwarded to The Terry Fox Foundation.

Thank you in advance for your support!

Orange Shirt Day

Orange Shirt Day is this Wednesday, September 30. Orange shirts will be worn across Ontario in recognition and memory of all the Indigenous children whose culture, language, and freedom were lost, oppressed or challenged. For more information https://orangeshirtday.org/about-us.html

First Communion – Sunday, October 4th @ 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.

It is happening a few months later than originally scheduled, but we send our prayers and best wishes to our Grade 3 students who are celebrating the sacrament of First Communion at St. Aloysius Parish this Sunday, October 4th at 1:00 p.m. or 4:00 p.m.

Recess Safety at St. Kateri 

The following practices are in place to keep students and staff safe during recess at our school.  Please remind your children it is important to physically distance from others during recess – a time when most students are staff are able to experience much needed ‘mask-relief’.

  • Daily reminders on our Google Announcements to physically distance from each other
  • Designated areas of the yard for different grades
  • WCDSB Phase 2 Recess Plan – designated basketball hoops for Grades 4-8
  • One basketball per student
  • Max. two students per hoop
  • Soccer – can only pass the ball – no games
  • Individual equipment only (e.g., skipping rope)
