From the Library Learning Commons
As we wind down for the summer, Library books are due Friday, June 8th. If a student cannot return their book, they will be expected to pay for a replacement.
Free E-books and Audiobooks Our E-book and audiobook collection on Overdrive is continually growing. Students can access at https://waterlooca.libraryreserve.com. Students can login using their computer login code/library card number (eg. 12345BER) and their birthdate (MMDDYYYY) as their password. If students don’t know their login, they can ask Ms. Zettler or their teacher. Books can then be read on your computer, or downloaded to your E-reader, tablet, or phone with the Overdrive app from your App Store.
The St. Aloysius Gator is retiring! We are looking for new ideas for a mascot, logo and name of our teams in September. If you have an idea for a new mascot, please send it to school with your child who will give it to Mrs. Schuett. For example, if your idea was our current logo, you would suggest the “St. Aloysius Gators” and your idea for a logo would be an alligator wearing a shirt with the letter A on it, and use the colours green and maroon. Feel free to draw a quick picture so that we can have a good understanding of your logo and mascot. Get those creative juices flowing. Good luck!
Please remember that colour yearbooks are being sold through School Cash Online and you can get yours for only $10.00! The orders need to be placed by June 7th. It’s a wonderful way to remember the school year.
World Cup of Soccer
World Cup of Soccer is a long-standing tradition at St. Aloysius School. Once again the students will be placed on teams representing countries from around the world. Each team will play a round-robin style tournament and the championship game will be played on June 25th.
Mission Day at St. Aloysius School
Friday June 22nd from 12:45-3:00pm we will be having our annual Mission Day. Funds raised will be going towards the school and the WE charity. We are looking for donations of gently used items such as toys, books, games, stuffed animals or any kind of item you think kids would enjoy. We are also in need of face paint, nail polish and small items for prizes. Please send in any items as soon as possible. This is a great time to clean out your toy rooms and donate to a great cause.
Students will have the opportunity to visit classrooms to participate in a variety of activities (e.g. nail salon, face painting, free throw, white elephant sale…) Activity costs will range between 1-8 tickets.
Students can purchase tickets the week of the June 11-20th on schoolcashonline. Tickets are $0.25 each or 25 for $5
Mark your calendar! This year our Multicultural Celebration will be held on June 12th from 5:30- 7:00. We are planning this exciting event and we would love for you to join us in this celebration. We will have a BBQ as well as face painting booths and performances from both the students and the community. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Transportation for 2018-2019 School Year
Transportation details for the 2018-2019 school year will be available on Monday August 20, 2018.
Parents can login and view their child’s transportation details by going to www.stswr.ca and following these easy steps:
- Click on “Student Login”
- Enter your child’s Ontario Education Number (OEN)
- The OEN can be found on your child’s report card
- Numbers only, no space, no dash
- Enter your child’s birth date – dd/mm/yyyy
- Enter your child’s street number – house number only
- Select the school your child is attending from the drop down menu
- Since Junior Kindergarten students will not have an OEN number prior to September, STSWR will be sending a direct mail out to families of Junior Kindergarten students detailing busing information for September 2018.
- Senior Kindergarten students will receive a mailed postcard with “Student Login” instructions to retrieve their information. Letters and postcards will be mailed out during the week of August 15th.
Please note that any address changes must be done at your child’s school. If you are moving in the summer or changing caregiver arrangements for the fall, you should communicate the change of address to your child’s school before the end of the 2017-2018 school year.
