Happy New Year!  We hope that you have had an enjoyable Christmas break and New Year with family and friends.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow at 8:30 am!!

Here are things that are happening at CTK this week:

Catholic Schools Advisory Council Meeting:  Please join us on Tuesday, January 7th at 6:00 pm in the Library Learning Commons.

On Wednesday, January 8th, our Grade 1 and 2 students will be heading off to Shades Mill.

Teaching Mass for Grades 5 and 6:  On Wednesday, January 8th, our students in Grades 5 and 6 will have an opportunity to spend some time with Father Ross Campbell at St. Patrick Church.  Our students will be learning about the Mass to deepen their understanding of the liturgy.  Father Ross Campbell will be explaining the different parts of the Mass and students will be able to ask questions.  A big thank you to Father Ross Campbell for this special experience for our students!

 

Grade 7 Meningococcal Vaccinations:  On Thursday, January 9th, Public Health nurses will be at CTK.  Public Health offers clinics each year in schools for all students in Grade 7 to receive their  Hepatitis B, HPV, and Meningococcal vaccines.

MADD Canada Assembly for Grade 7 and 8 students: On Friday, January 10th, MADD Canada will be bringing alcohol awareness and risk reduction messaging to our Intermediate students.  Although grade 7 and 8 students are not yet driving or may not yet be experimenting with alcohol or drugs, we know that educating students at a young age helps them develop the necessary skills required to make important decisions when the time comes.  This is a critical point in students’ lives where they are becoming more independent and are at a stage where they can be easily influenced, impressionable and vulnerable.  The program guides them and gives them the tools that will prepare them for making smart and responsible choices before they enter high school.
