Thank you for all of your at home support with our Senior Kindergarten Snuggle Up and Read Program! It has been amazing to see so many little readers in our classroom! This will be our last week sending home our Snuggle Up and Read folders. Please kindly return your child's folder and book this Friday. Please take time to continue to read with your child and practise our word wall words in preparation for Grade 1! -Mrs. Landry :)
We invite you to join us on Thursday, May 9th, 2019 from 5:30-8:00pm to celebrate 25 years of Community and Education at St. James Catholic School. We look forward to celebrating with all current students and alumni.
Helping Paw Squad is on their last mission to collect a variety of items to help the Ottawa Humane Society fulfill their wish list. We are hoping from some help from our St. James community to help us on our mission. The wish list below includes suggested items that they are in need of. The kinders are working on creating and decorating boxes to organize the items donated. We are hoping to begin collecting items from April 15-May 3rd. A note will go home with your child to explain what items are needed from The Ottawa Humane Society Wish List.
Thank you so much for all of your support! We are so excited for the next step in our EA venture.
The Kindergarten Team
As part of our Entrepreneurial Adventure Program, the kinder students will be raising money for the Ottawa Humane Society. On Friday, Feb. 1st, we are asking all students to participate in our Animal Spirit Day with a $2 donation. Students can bring in an animal stuffy, dress up as an animal, bring in a photo of their pet or favourite animal.
Thursdays will be our class sledding day. Please remember to send in your child's helmet on Thursdays each week if you have selected that your child must wear a helmet to sled.
Our Year 2 students (SK) have begun our at home reading program. Thank you to all the parents for helping to support this wonderful reading program! The students are very excited to practise reading with you at home. Please make sure to return your child's reading folder and book on Friday each week. A new book will go home on Mondays.
Our school Christmas Concert/Play will be on Friday, December 14, 2018. There will be 2 performances on this day at 10:30 am and 2:15 pm. The Kindergarten students will be opening the show singing, "Hush There's A Baby". Your child is asked to wear Christmas attire on this day for our performance.
ADVENT PROJECT- Christmas Hampers/Angel Tree- We, at St. James school have chosen to support families in a less privileged school in our School Board. We are supporting these families through the gift of food hampers compiled by each class in the school. Cash donations will also be appreciated. All monies raised will be used to buy food vouchers. Thank you in advance for your kindness and support.
With the cold weather moving in, please send your child to school dressed appropriately for the weather. We are outdoors for 45 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes at lunch. Please send in extra socks and a spare set of clothing for your child if they do not have any in the classroom.
Just a reminder that Kindergarten Progress Reports will go home on Thursday, November 15.
