Weekly Dragon Update – Jan 22 26

Parking Safety

We have been meeting with the City Bylaw officers to gather ideas to make our parking areas at St. Dominic School a safe place for all.  In the Kiss and Drop areas, parents must use the inside lane closest to the sidewalk to drop off their child for school.  This ensures that no one has to cross over the laneway and ensures safety for everyone.  Parents who are parking in the outside lane, closest to Victoria Street may be issued a parking fine.  As well, please be mindful of not stopping or parking in front of the school as it a bus loading zone. A bylaw officer will be present over the next couple of weeks to ensure this rule is being followed.  In addition, the bylaw officer may issue fines for parents who are stopping on Victoria Street drop off their children for school.  St. Dominic School is in the process of creating new signage to help remind parents of the importance of safety.  We thank you for your patience and understanding as we refine these procedures in the spirit of safety for all.

CTV at St. Dominic’s!

Our very own Mr. Runstedler and some amazing students had the chance to be local celebrities this week.  We had a visit from CTV News on Wednesday to capture the great innovative spirit of our Dragon community.  We were able to showcase lego robotics, video editing, sphero challenges, coding, maker space, elastic car building and much more.  Students were eager to show their learning and engagement in many different ways.  Although it turned out to be a 10 second clip, we were featured on the news!  Amazing work Dragons!  The link to the full CTV broadcast is below.  Our school is featured at the 39 minute mark.

ECO Team

We have a strong ECO Team at our school with over 30+ members.  We have been working on goals to hopefully receive our Bronze Certification with ECO Schools Ontario!  One of our initiatives has been to improve our recycling and composting that takes place in our classrooms.  We have a dedicated group of students who look after this for the entire school each day!  Lots more initiatives to come!
