This article appeared in the Winnipeg Free Press on September 2nd. It has been included in this blog because of SCCS’s relationship with Professor Anna Stokke who conducted a workshop with the SCCS staff in 2012 and commented that “It is great to see that you and your staff are committed to delivering solid math instruction to your students. The children and parents at your school are very lucky!”
On Wednesday, September 3rd, the Grades 1-8 students had their first full day of school.
The annual Opening Prayer Service was led by the school Principal, Dr. Penny, and actively supported by the Grade 8 students who read and carried up the gifts. Throughout the service, the school was treated to music accompaniment provided by the teachers including Mrs. Sherlock (voice), Mrs. Reynolds (voice), Mr. Racaru (violin), Mrs. Lalonde (clarinet) and Mrs. Langlois (piano). The service concluded on a strong positive note when Msgr. Comeault, the Corporate Board Chair, spoke to the parable of the “seed that fell on fertile ground” and blessed the community as it begins a new year. Immediately after the service, a general assembly led by Mrs. Narynski was held during which the teachers were introduced to all the students, and the school goals and uniform pride expectations were reviewed.
