Valentines Dance for Grades 2-7 at Elgin Street PS on February 10th.
Please see attached poster.
The journey outside is a safe and healthy choice for students and parents. Join the walk this February 1 and provide your kids with the jumpstart they need to perform better in the classroom! Let’s encourage, educate, and learn together!
All students can participate in Winter Walk Day! Bussed students walk to their bus stop. Remote learners can walk from home. Families who need to drive can park five minutes away and walk the rest of the way (find your Drive to 5 Maps here: https://www.stswr.ca/walkzone/maps/).
Walking outside in cold air can reduce stress, increase serotonin (the happiness hormone), and even though the action may be slower, walking in snow leads to greater heart conditioning and increased endurance over time.

Reminders for the Week
We had another amazing week at Christ the King! This month, we are thrilled to be welcoming DRUMFIT to our school gymnasium! We are so excited this opportunity to engage in physical activity with some extra fun added in! Grade 1-8 classes will be participating during their regular gym time throughout the month.
The snow and cold temperatures are on their way. Please check that your child(ren) is wearing warm enough clothing to play outside for up to 40 minutes. Playing outside is much more enjoyable when layers of warm clothing are warm. It is also a great idea to have extra socks and mittens tucked away in their backpack for times when the snow is wet.
Winter Walk Day! Let’s see all Bobcat’s Participate! You can do it!
Winter Walk Day is February 1!
Walking and wheeling to and from school is great for the environment and it’s fun even in the winter. Winter Walk Day asks schools to celebrate students who walk to school by holding an event in your school community. STSWR will supply registered schools with walk day event ideas and posters; and all registered schools are entered into a draw for a bike or scooter rack!
All students (JK to Grade 12) can participate and register for a chance to win one of ten $25 Indigo gift cards! Bussed students can walk to their bus stop. Out of bounds students can drive and walk from a few blocks away. Online learners can walk at home. Schools and students can register at the respective links below.

· Our WCDSB Multi-Year Strategic Plan (MYSP) for 2022-2025 has been released. Some may wonder, what is an MYSP? An MYSP informs constituents of what the board intends to achieve, what its priorities are and how it plans to achieve them. It reflects the vision for the board including its overall purpose – mission statement – beliefs, and strategic directions. You can check out our board’s MYSP here: https://www.wcdsb.ca/mysp/ . Here is a video from our Director Tyrone Dowling explaining the MYSP. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8PRrC1Hhgw
Parents/Guardians are to complete a daily COVID-19 screening on their children before sending them to school. We no longer require proof of the screening. If there are any symptoms your child must stay home. Here is the link: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/
