Dear CTK Families,

It is so hard to believe that another school year has come to an end! While we continued to overcome some challenges this year, it has been simply amazing to end the year with protocols lifted which have allowed us to come together as a community and celebrate our time together! It has been a rewarding and most enjoyable year for us to have the opportunity to work with you and your children. It is often said that “it takes a village to raise a child” and, as such, the great people of this community have and will continue to make Christ the King a great place to be!

 

The end of the school year inevitably means saying farewell to both some of our staff and students. We are proud of our 2022 Grade 8 graduates. It has been a pleasure to watch them grow and we wish them every success as they begin their journey through secondary school. Our hope is that, as they enter high school in September, they do so with confidence and a strong belief in themselves. We pray that God may bless and guide them always!
We thank all of our educators who are leaving for their hard work, dedication, and support during their time at CTK. Mr. Caceros, Ms. Gillespie, Ms. Schwab, Ms. Silva, and Ms. Soares, you will all be truly missed, and we wish you all the best in your new school communities!

A heartfelt thank you to Nancy Sabo, a retired principal who has been supporting the staff and students of Christ the King. She has been truly committed to the Bobcat community. Her professionalism, kindness, and desire to see the best in all have been appreciated.

I am writing with bitter-sweet news today as I am sharing that I will not be returning to Christ the King CES as principal next year but am also very excited about a new adventure in St Clements. Our community is truly exceptional. I have truly enjoyed watching your child learn and grow. I want to thank you, sincerely, for your care, compassion, and commitment to Catholic education. 

Your new principal will be Mrs. Andrea Dafoe. She is currently the principal of St. Clements CES. She comes with a commitment to quality education and a faith-based focus. I know that she will continue to build upon the community we have built and will ensure your child is successful and happy here.

In closing, we would like to wish you and your family a safe and happy summer filled with God’s blessings of peace, health, and happiness! School is back in on September 6th, Bobcats!!

Stay safe,

Sherry MacDonald

Immunization of Schools Pupils Act Information Grades 7-12 Students

Good Morning,

 

Please read the following Important Information for Parents /Guardians of Students in Grades 7-12 — Region of Waterloo Public Health Immunization Catch-Up Clinics

 

Under the Immunization of School Pupils Act, all primary and secondary students need to have proof of immunization against diphtheria, tetanus, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, meningococcal disease, pertussis and varicella (chickenpox). 

 

If your child was born in 2006 or later, they are also eligible to receive or complete their series of Hepatitis B and Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines.

 

Enforcement of the Immunization of School Pupils Act is expected to resume next school year.  Students are being encouraged to catch-up on their vaccines now to avoid suspension when enforcement begins.

 

Public Health is offering clinics to help get students back on track with their vaccinations.  Many appointments are available in the month of June in both Cambridge and Waterloo locations.

 

If your child is in grade 7 to 12 this school year (2021/2022) and not up-to-date on their routine vaccines, you will have received a letter in the mail letting you know which vaccines are missing.

 

Before booking an appointment, parents/students should update their immunization records with Public Health using one of the following methods:

 

  • Online at the following link: https://bit.ly/3v9rwPT
  • By calling 519-575-4400 ext. 5001 (Monday to Friday 8:30am – 4:30pm)
  • Phone 519-575-4400 Ext 5001
  • Fax 519-885-7260

 

Appointments for students in grade 7 to 12 can be booked online using the following link https://bit.ly/3MDSiXy or by calling 519-575-4400 ext 5001.  Translation is available for those who require it. 

 

If you have questions about the Vaccine Program catch-up process, please call 519-575-4400  ext. 5001.

 

 Have a wonderful day!

Bobcat Weekly Update #38 June 6-10

“I Can & I Will…Be Unstoppable”

Ms Taillon and the students of Room 115  will be creating prayers and jokes of the day!!

The students in Grades 4 to 8 are preparing and looking forward to participating in our School Track and Field Meet on Monday, June 6, 2022, at St Benedict Catholic Secondary School.

All students will participate in 3 track /1 field event OR 2 track / 2 field events. To ensure our success for the day, we have a few reminders for students and families to bring the following items:

  • A nutritional lunch and snacks in a cooler, if possible – please avoid sending any milk products (e.g., mayo as it may be sitting in the hot sun all day!)
  • Plenty of water in non-breakable containers.
  • Sunscreen is essential (kindly send a tube/bottle of sunscreen not aerosol).
  • Blanket or towel to sit on or to cover up with.
  • Track pants, sweatshirt, appropriate length shorts, t-shirt, wind pants and jacket, and suitable running shoes. (No spikes).
  • Umbrella and/or hat for the sun – there is very little shade – students need to protect themselves from the sun. Sunglasses are recommended.
  • Raincoat if the weather prescribes it.
  • There is no concession booth for the students. There is no need to send any money with your child.
  • Students are not permitted to leave the Track & Field meet at any time during the day or leave the designated area assigned to us.  This includes going to the plaza at lunch.
  • There are washrooms indoors that will be designated for our students only and a supervisor will assist students with washroom visits.
  • In between their events, students will be sitting in an assigned area with their class. We suggest bringing materials like books, cards, a sketch pad, or small travel games to entertain themselves. They are also encouraged to watch the events near their location and cheer on their peers.
  • NO ELECTRONIC DEVICES (cell phones, iPods, MP3 players, video games, etc.)
  • Parents are reminded not to park in front of the school. This area is reserved for patrons of the Library.
  • Students will walk to track and back to the school.  Should a parent be on site to watch and would like to take their child home at the end of the meet – you must sign him/her out with a teacher (name & signature).  This will allow you to take your own child(ren) home. We cannot release friends to ride home with another family. Thank you for understanding.

We are also kindly reminding everyone that we are guests of St Benedict’s.
