 CAT-4 test for Grade 7s: This week, our Grade 7 students will write the CAT-4 test.  CAT-4 is a standardized test which measures achievement in the basic skills generally taught in schools across Canada. CAT is a set of tests on reading, mathematics, language, writing and spelling. The results of students tested with CAT are compared with those obtained from large, representative samples of students from across Canada. Their results can also be compared to curriculum expectations. CAT is the only Canadian owned and Canadian designed national test. In addition to its use by schools, part of CAT has been chosen by statistics Canada as the basis for tracking achievement over time.

Wednesday, April 24th: Grade 4s will be going to the Safety Village.  Through the use of videos, the Hazard House and Sparky’s apartment, students apply lessons about home hazards, safe cooking, smoke alarms and home escape.

Holy Week: Week of April 15, 2019

 

This week is Holy Week and a very special week for our Catholic communities.  Holy Week is the last seven days of Lent. It begins with Palm Sunday and ends with Easter Sunday.  Today on Palm Sunday, we celebrate the first joy of the season, as we celebrate Our Lord’s triumphant entrance into Jerusalem where he was welcomed by crowds worshiping him and laying down palm leaves before him.   To commemorate this very special week, our Intermediate students will be re-enacting the Stations of the Cross on Wednesday at 9:00 am.  Holy Thursday commemorates Jesus’ Last Supper, in which He instituted the sacraments of the Eucharist and holy orders.  As a school we will be breaking and sharing bread at 12:30 pm.  Everyone is welcome so please join us!

Other things happening this week….

  • Monday, April 15th: Our Kindergarten classes will be visiting the Journey to Space Exhibit at the Waterloo Region Museum.

 

  • Tuesday April 16th:  Our Grade 8 students will be heading over to Guelph Galaxy Cinemas for the Youth Symposium.  The Youth Symposium program brings together 14 powerful presentations from some of the best speakers in the country, covering a wide range of topics that have a long-lasting, positive impact on the students!
  • There will be an important meeting for all Grade 8 Parents on Tuesday at 6:00pm.  This meeting is for parents only (no students!) and at least one parent must attend this meeting.

GRADE 4’s – CANADIAN COGNITIVE ACHIEVEMENT TEST (CCAT):  This week, our Grade 4 students throughout the Waterloo Catholic District School Board will be writing the Canadian Cognitive Abilities Test (CCAT). This test is a valuable tool for educators and parents and assists us toward further identifying your child’s learning strengths and needs. The test will be spread over 3 days (three subtests ranging from 30 – 60 minutes each) and is composed of a verbal, non-verbal and quantitative battery. This assessment will take place over a 3 day period. The purpose of the CCAT is to:

  1.  Identify your child’s areas of strength and areas of need,
  2.  Provide information about your child’s learning style(s),
  3. Provide direction to your child’s teacher on instructional methods, learning materials and the pace of instruction.

Shades Mills:  Students in Grade 3 and Grade 6 will be off to Shades Mill on Wednesday April 1oth.

 

Professional Activity Day Friday April 12th:  This Friday, there is no school for students as staff will be engaged in activities relating to Student Achievement.  The Extended Day will still be running at our school for those that are enrolled in the program.
