April Umbrella Theme

We continue to explore the Umbrella themes each month and students are starting to build their own personal umbrellas – being able to use various strategies to help them deal with struggles they may face in their lives.  Throughout the month of April, we will be exploring the theme of Intrinsic Motivation. Take a minute to read the attached article that can be found at the link below. It has some great activities for your children around Intrinsic Motivation.

Coming Soon

Our May Umbrella Theme will be Integrity. Stay Tuned!

 

Easter Liturgy

On Friday, our students had the opportunity to participate in our Easter Liturgy. We were challenged to rejoice in the Earth’s renewal, to always remember Jesus’ Easter Promises of Hope and Faith, and that we are Called to Belong. Thanks goes out to our Grade 4 readers and to the School Pastoral team for this great celebration.

Earth Day Assembly and Yard Cleanup

Our school Earth Day Assembly and Yard Beautification project was a hit. What a great opportunity for our school to hear Ms. Herzog’s important message about conservation and reducing our carbon footprint. We need to remember that we are all stewards of the earth and part of “its crew!”

Badminton Team

Congratulations goes out to the St. Dominic Intermediate Badminton team. The team competed in their tournament on Thursday and their performance did not disappoint. The team was successful in winning a number of medals and all team members had a great showing. ALl should be very proud of their efforts!

 

Math Matters!

Can you solve this?
