Students prepare a card for Coach Maurice on the day after playoff game 4. They wanted to share their appreciation – it takes real courage to play hard and lose with dignity!

We’re so proud of his leadership and the team’s efforts. Go, Jets, go!

Angelus

Two years ago, Miriam Ragetli founded the SCCS Angelus Club. This group of students in grades 3-5 meet weekly at lunchtime to pray together and to study the lives of the saints. This year they are especially praying for vocations and those in the consecrated life to celebrate the Year of the Consecrated Life.

“In 2013, Pope Francis declared that a Year of Consecrated Life (YCL) be celebrated throughout the world. YCL will begin on the First Sunday of Advent, November 30, 2014. It will close on the World Day of Consecrated Life, February 2, 2016.”

…. Emily Carr

The K-5 students were treated to a presentation on Emily Carr recently. Emily Carr is a famous Canadian artist and a unique person and artist, who struggled a bit in school because of it. The play touched on this, through acting, music and singing. The backdrops included her art as well as a depiction of her homestead.

EmilyCIn preparation for the event, the Grades 1-2 students studied some of her artwork and made their own replications of it. These are pictures created by Mrs. Sherlock’s Grade 1 class (finger-paints) and Mrs. Langlois’ class (colored sketches). Following the event, the students wrote reflections in their journals.

Interim Report for the Annual School Goals

This year, the school goals for St. Charles Catholic School revolve around the theme of “power”.Goals

They are:

Goal 1 – “Power of Prayer” – The goal this year is for every person in our school to experience first-hand the power of prayer. We will learn to pray together and for one another as a caring community. We will know we are successful in this objective if all members of our community experience a higher than usual level of joy-full-ness.

Goal 2 – “Power of 10” – We believe that the ability to demonstrate automaticity in math is fundamental. Our goal this year is that every student increase his/her automaticity skills in math by 10% and that every student demonstrates automaticity at or above grade level. To this end, the math teachers will be using a supplementary math program titled “the Power of 10”.

Goal 3 – “Power of Excellence in Writing” – For almost two decades the students at SCCS have been using a writing program called Excellence in Writing. Our goal this year is that through efficient implementation of the program every student increases his/her abilities in writing by 10% or more.

The staff have been collecting data in the classroom, and surveys were conducted of parents and staff. The results are as follows:
