Dear Parents,

 

It is that time of year again! St. Elizabeth is having a Scholastic Virtual Book Fair this Spring! Let’s start off March Break with a little fun! It is a perfect time to build your home library and do a little shopping for Easter!

The St. Elizabeth Virtual Book Fair will run from March 15th (start date) until March 26th, 2021 (end date).

Here is St. Elizabeth’s unique Virtual Book Fair link: https://virtualbookfairs.scholastic.ca/pages/5158606

Please remember this link does not start until Monday, March 15, 2021.

St. Elizabeth will earn 20% of the net sales that will go directly back into the school’s library.

All shipping will be free for orders over $40 before tax.

VIRTUAL FAMILY NIGHT SPECIAL OFFER– when shopping on Wednesday nights ONLY, between 6pm to 8pm ONLY, local time zone, all orders will qualify for FREE SHIPPING, as there will be no minimum to spend required.

All orders will be shipped directly to your home.

Take a break, watch the book trailers, and just take the time to gather together at home to browse the Virtual Book Fair site together as a family.

What a great way to refresh your home libraries, grab a meaningful gift or find your next read!

 

You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.

Tomorrow is Orange Shirt Day!

Tomorrow is Orange Shirt Day – Every Child Matters

 

Orange shirt day recognizes the legacy of the Residential school system for First Nations, Metis and Inuit families and communities. By wearing an orange shirt, we show support and understanding of the history of the school system that continues to impact many First Nations, Metis and Inuit people today. It is an opportunity to bring awareness about the history of residential schools and to stand up against other injustices that may impact children.

Nutrition for Learning

Nutrition for Learning

Each week we will receive a shipment from Nutrition for Learning of individually packaged non-perishable items for each student.

 

Each student will receive a paper bag that will contain snacks (cheerios, granola bar, crackers, apple sauce with a plastic spoon for example) to last for the week. Students are not obligated to eat the snacks; it is invitational. If there are families who do not wish for their child(ren) to participate in the Nutrition for Learning program that is being offered at the school, please let the main office and your child’s classroom teacher know. These individual student packages are not to take the place of snacks brought from home.

 

We thank the team at Nutrition for Learning who are providing this opportunity to our school.

St. Elizabeth Terry Fox School Run

September 2020

 

St. Elizabeth Terry Fox School Run

 

On October 8th our school will be proudly participating in the Terry Fox School Run. Over 9,000 schools across Canada are taking part in the Run this year and that means that over 3 million students will be fundraising for cancer research in Terry’s name. This is one of our most favourite events of the year – we get to celebrate the life of Terry Fox, his Marathon of Hope and show our incredible school spirit as we come together to help others.

 

We all know that Terry Fox is one of our greatest Canadian heroes but sometimes we forget how hard his struggle was and why we continue to do the Terry Fox Run every year. Our event this year is an opportunity to take action, show leadership and set examples of compassion and kindness towards others. Students will be staying on school grounds and each class will have an opportunity to participate remaining in their Class Cohort.

 

Unfortunately, we all probably know someone with cancer, whether it’s a family member or friend, we’re all touched by cancer in some way and now it’s up to us to help them. St. Elizabeth has been a proud supporter of the Terry Fox School Run for 11 years, and we have raised an incredible $46 388.35 for cancer research! Let’s add to our amazing total and continue to carry on Terry’s legacy. Gather family donations, or have your parents make an online contribution though the St. Elizabeth school page at http://www.terryfox.ca/StElizabethCESCambridge.

 

Let’s go Eagles!!!

 

Thank you for your support on behalf of the staff at St. Elizabeth School.

Update March 13, 2020

March 13, 2020

 

As a result of the Government of Ontario’s order for all publicly funded schools in Ontario to remain closed from March 14, 2020 to April 5, 2020 (https://news.ontario.ca/opo/en/2020/03/title.html), the Waterloo Catholic District School Board is taking the following actions to further assist in limiting the spread of COVID-19:

 

  • Effective March 14, 2020 to April 5, 2020 all WCDSB schools (including all St. Louis Adult Education campuses) are closed.
  • Effective March 16 all Extended Day programs are cancelled. Families registered in WCDSB operated programs will not be charged fees during this time period.
  • Effective March 14, 2020 to April 5, 2020 all Community Use of Schools permits are cancelled.
  • WCDSB Co-op placements, Dual Credit and SWAC programs are cancelled.
  • The March 23, 2020 public meeting of the Board of Trustees is cancelled. Any delegations pertaining to the St. John CES Boundary Review will be received as planned on Monday, April 6 at the regularly-scheduled Board Meeting, and again at a Special Public Board Meeting on Monday, April 20, 2020.
  • The March 26, 2020 Blessing & Dedication ceremony for the newly-renovated Waterloo Region Catholic Education Centre is postponed to a later date to be determined.

 

The safety and wellbeing of our students and staff is always our top priority, and we will continue working with local Public Health staff to ensure our schools remain clean, safe and welcoming in anticipation of the resumption of school in April. We encourage everyone to remain vigilant regarding hand hygiene and cough / sneeze etiquette and to follow all Public Health guidance and directives.

 

We ask all WCDSB stakeholders to continue monitoring our special COVID-19 web page for up-to-date information (https://www.wcdsb.ca/covid-19-coronavirus-updates/)  — and our prayers continue for all those around the world who have been or will be affected by COVID-19.
