Weekly CSPC Update March 8th, 2015

Hello Parents!  Exciting things to report this week!

Congratulations Lions!  St Leo Swim Team placed 1st in mixed relay at the TCDSB Swim Meet this weekend! All students swam well and many even achieved their personal best!  A huge thank you to all teachers, coaches and parents who helped to make this a reality for our students.

We are thrilled to announce that St. Leo now has our own parent website.  Please check it out for all up to date information and let us know if there is anything that you would like to see on it.  It is there as a tool for you so any and all feedback is appreciated.  Check us out at www.stleoparentcouncil.org  

A huge thank you to Mimico Canadiens, Play It Again Sports, Lakeshore Old Timers Hockey League and the Mimico Community for their incredibly generous donations of over $2000.00 worth of used skates and helmets.  The skating locker will remain at the school for all students who may not have equipment.  We look forward to next year and all of our students being able to take advantage of having ice so close to home!  

Grades 7 and 8 will be skating at Mimico arena on Tuesday from 1:00p.m. - 2:00p.m. .  Still looking for parent volunteers.  Come and join us for the last skate of the year!

Spring Fling will celebrate the many heritages of St. Leo this year.  We hope it to be a big community event featuring food, entertainment and wares from around the world.  If you speak a second language, celebrate another culture or have any ideas as to how to contribute please let us know.  We are proud of our diversity and want to show it to the community!

Reminder that Mac and Cheese day will be this Thursday, March 12th.  Look for forms in your child's backpack.

Reminder to wear green on Friday for St. Patty's Day!

For those who are planning summer activities; the last day of school is June 25th and the 1st day of school for 2015 is Tuesday, September 8th. 

Ms Ryan looking for assistance in cataloguing many of our new books.  If you have an hour to spare, please show up in the library Monday from 9:15a.m. - 10:30a.m.  Any help is hugely appreciated!

A huge thank you to Jackie McGrath and Carey Burleigh for helping our teachers and students in the artwork for our school yard.  They are currently on display in the main hall.  Check out the fantastic work!

Reminder that SK and Grade 8 pictures are Tuesday, March 10th.

Children Urban Enrichment Studio located on the Lakeshore is our sponsor of the week.  Check out the website www.stleoparentcouncil.org for more information!

Have a wonderful week everyone and please let us know if you have any questions, concerns or ideas to make our school even more awesome!

Warmest Regards,
