May 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 May, we will be exploring the theme of Integrity. 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 Integrity.

Catholic Education Week

The theme for this year’s Catholic Education Week was Living as Joyful Disciples. There were many special activities that our students were involved with this week. From the Folk Dance and Grade 7 Dance presentations to our Catholic Education Week Mass, our Dragons were a busy bunch!

Welcome!

We had the pleasure of welcoming some international students from Colombia this week. 8 grade 5/6 girls from Marymount School have joined us at St. Dominic. All students are learning from each other and expanding their horizons due to this amazing adventure. Make sure to say hi if you have the pleasure of coming into contact with any of our international visitors!

Congratulations!

A resounding Congratulations goes out to our St. Dominic Folk Dance Team! The students had their culminating performance at The Aud on Thursday evening. After going through a flawless practice performance in the gym Thursday afternoon, the team was in fantastic form for their evening finale. All dancers should be very proud of their work and dedication. Thank You goes out to Ms. Tank, Ms. Buck and Mrs. Montes for their hard work with this dedicated group of students this term. Well Done !

School Track and Field Meet

Our school level Track and Field Meet was held on Tuesday at Resurrection CSS. All students worked hard preparing for this meet and the competition was fierce. Congratulations goes out to all students who participated and gave it their all. Good Luck to those students going on to compete at the Regional Track and Field Meet later on in the year.

Math Matters!

Can you solve this?
