February 12th to 16th
Catholic Schools Week is a annual event during which the entire community comes together to celebrate Catholic education and our school in particular. Beginning with a prayerful opening assembly, the activities included celebrating getting up early for the Shrove Tuesday pancake breakfast, Ash Wednesday Mass at Camp Assiniboia, 100 Day celebrations, bowling, Adrenaline Adventures, and Harbourview winter fun. Teachers, along with their approximately 500 colleagues from all across Winnipeg, spent their Friday at the annual Catholic Schools Day Conference. We were proud that our Principal, Dr. Penny, was one of the session facilitators.
Post – 100 Days Celebrations
Many students got into the spirit last week after the Grades K-2 students completed their annual 100 Day celebrations.
Mrs. Baker’s Grade 2 class created a bulletin board with the heading: “On My Hundredth Birthday I want to…..”
Each student in the class completed the sentence and added a picture of what they think they will look like when they are “old” thanks to an iPad app.
Mrs. Prettie’s Grade 4 class made posters for their bulletin board which had two columns: things I wish I had 100 of, and things I would not like to have 100 of…. such as bossy sisters!
Mrs. Sherlock’s Grade 1 class wrote paragraphs completing the phrase: “Now that I am a 100 days smarter…”
The early years, K-2, students celebrated the 100th Day at school on Thursday, February 12th! The students enjoyed their day participating in a various activities based on the 100 theme. Some of the activities that the students completed were: The 100 Day Olympics; building with 100 items; making 100 Day glasses; doing puzzles with 100 pieces; The 100 Day Dance Party (there were certainly at least 100 different moves!); and, stringing 100 Fruit Loops onto a ribbon to make a necklace.
The afternoon was concluded with the movie, Disney’s Planes Fire & Rescue in the gym. It was an awesome day!
Many thanks to the parent volunteers who were the key to a highly enjoyable, successful event. We are truly blessed with a supportive community at St. Charles Catholic School!
