 Students, please carefully think about what Mr. Borkowski came and talked to all the grade 7's about today. You are all such a caring and kind bunch of students- let's keep building each other up and helping each other become your best selves! :)
Here is a reminder of the types of behaviours that have been occurring, and that will not be tolerated (Mr. B. has asked that anyone that does such actions be sent immediately to his office so that parents can be called):

Tomorrow is a new day, and I have a feeling it will be a great one!

We are certainly back to reality after our amazing time at Timberline Ranch last week. Getting to know you all and see you enjoy yourselves at camp was a real privilege!

I am looking forward to getting into our proper routine this week. It was great to finally do our religion/socials/science switch today. I am sure you were all delighted to see a new teacher ;)
Band will also be in full swing this week.

I hope the cross country meet went well for the three students that attended. Volleyball and boys soccer are also underway this week.

A big thank you to parents for submitting those camp insurance forms. There are still some yet to come in, so we ask that you submit them by tmw please.

Today we spent lots of time learning about our classroom saint, Saint Therese of Lisieux. Here is a link to the video we watched:

The countdown to camp is on!! I know you are all so excited for this great opportunity. It is going to be great. I advise you all to spend time packing ahead of time so that you are not delayed. Please be at CCS at 8.30am on Weds. for departure by bus (space is tight so please pack lightly).  Pick up is before 2pm on Friday.

Feel free to remind your parents that they are welcome to join us for skits on the first evening (around 6pm)- they promise to be entertaining!

Many of you will spend your weekends singing the Rattlin' Bog song I am's just so catchy! I cannot wait to sing it with you all at the campfire at Timberline next week. Please be sure to go over the notice regarding Timberline with your parents.

I am yet to hear from a couple of your parents via email, so if you could kind them to shoot me a quick "hello" email I would appreciate it.
