Reminder: Halloween

Important Reminder for Halloween: The ONLY mask your child can wear is their usual COVID face covering. This was clearly communicated by the Chief Medical Officer of Ontario on Monday, October 19. Please know that your child will be required to wear their mask so makeup on your child’s face will not be necessary.

All students are invited to dress up in costumes for Halloween on Friday, October 30th at school. While we want students to have fun, please use the following guidelines when choosing an appropriate costume for school. If you child is not comfortable wearing a costume, they are welcome to wear black and orange for the day to join in the festive nature of Halloween.

If possible, send you child to school in a spare/used/older costume in the event it becomes damaged. You may also send a change of clothes for your child for the afternoon as many children are not comfortable being in a costume all day long.

Your child will be attending class, participating in physical education, going outside for recess breaks, and eating their snacks/lunch in their costume – they need to be able to move comfortably.

  • All costumes should be school aged appropriate
  • Do not send any props (e.g., pitch forks, weapons, brooms, wands, etc.)
  • No scary or gory costumes will be allowed

If costumes are inappropriate, students will be asked to change.

COVID Additions to Halloween at School:

The ONLY mask your child can wear is their usual COVID face covering. This was clearly communicated by the Chief Medical Officer of Ontario on Monday, October 19. Please know that your child will be required to wear their mask so makeup to your child’s face will not be necessary.

Unfortunately, there will be NO TREAT sharing of any kind. This includes candy, prepacked treats, etc. We know that times are challenging for students right now. However, thanks to the efforts we have all made to this point, school continues to be a positive and safe space for all members of our community. Let’s continue to do the right thing even when it isn’t the popular or preferred thing.

Your understanding and cooperation is genuinely appreciated!

WCDSB Pastoral Update

Last year, WCDSB launched our Pastoral Theme: Called to Belong. We could not have foreseen what the future held, yet the Spirit was with us, guiding our theme and moving us to create a deep sense of Belonging and connection during such a difficult journey. We feel the same about the second year of our three-year Pastoral Plan, entitled Gathered to Become.

In John 6:35, Jesus proclaims “I am the bread of life.”

Let this year of Becoming truly be a year of Transformation. As the Eucharist transforms us, so let us be the “Bread of Life” to all we encounter. May we experience transformation this year – from the challenges of new learning situations, platforms and learning environments – to allow us to emerge from our chrysalis healthy and strong and to successfully be able to spread our wings and soar.

Please enjoy our new Gathered to Become Pastoral Launch video.

 

Terry Fox Run – THANK YOU!

Hi Tiger Families!

At the beginning of October, the staff and students of St. Vincent de Paul school came together to walk, run, and raise money for the Marathon of Hope.  We are SO PROUD of the students for all of their hard work. Instead of going out for just one day, we saw classes go out many times throughout the week. In doing so, the SVDP tigers completed 358 laps! 

A really big shout out goes out to the winning COHORT – Mr.Lisi & Mrs.Ianni’s classes. 

Thank you for all of the sponsorships that came in as well.  This year, SVDP raised a total of $907 for the Terry Fox Foundation.  WAY TO GO TIGERS!
