Bully Awareness Week

Community ….. this week at St. George was a week of community. I could give a dozen examples of the way that our entire school community has come together but I will just highlight one. The fundraiser for Noah. The outpouring of generosity from our community was overwhelming. We certainly made a difference for one of our own this week.

This week is Bully Prevention Awareness and Prevention Week. Each day on the announcements there will be an announcement and there are a couple of activities planned:

  • “Hands Joining Hands to Stop Bullying.”
  • Junior Bully Prevention Rap Contest
  • Primary Bully Prevention Poster Contest
  • Thursday is School Colour Day for Bully Prevention

Thank you to everyone who made chili last week for our Chili Cook Off! And congrats to Miss. Sam who was the winner. Tracy and Sandra really appreciate all of the support helping us out with our United Way Campaign and everything you are all doing to help us reach our goal.

Interview Times: On Monday parents will be able to start signing up for interview times at 12noon. I have created and shared your interview schedule with you. Here you will be able to make spreadsheet with all the responses with a click of a button. If you into your drive and look for files shared with me you will see it. Just look for your name and search the following with your name: Mr. Slack 2017 SGE Teacher Interview Times. If you need any help let me know.

Remembrance Day:

On Friday we will have our ceremony at 10:45. We will adjust recess accordingly so that we are ready to go promptly and ready for 11AM. We will have Deacon Bob with us, a couple of military special guests and our MPP Yasir Naqvi.

If each class couple please have a wreath that they can lay during the ceremony that would be greatly appreciated. They can have tape on them so we can attach them to the wall. Please have two students from each class to lay the wreath

Grade 6 students will be coming around to give out and collect donations for poppies on Friday morning. It is always so nice to see every single student with a poppy at our ceremony.


Treaty Week: Thank you to Jacqueline for getting us organized this week and recognizing and discussing a very important part of Canada’s past and the cultural implications that are still being felt today.

Public Health Nurse:

Our Public Health Nurse is Catherin Lupien. She is fully bilingual and is willing to come into any class K-6, English or French.
