CSPC Newsletter week of October 23rd, 2017

Hello St Leo Community!
Welcome to the new families who are receiving this weekly newsletter for the first time.  I hope you will find it useful.  Special thanks to Michelle Nolden-Szarka who diligently added everyone into our database.  If ever you hear of someone who is not receiving this newsletter and you know that they would like to – please send along their email address to me and I will be happy to add them to the distribution list.  And of course – if you ever want off this list – let me know and I will remove you immediately.
Congratulations and Good Luck!
I was so proud to watch the St Leo runners this past week at the TCDSB Regional Cross Country meet.  Congratulations to all of you – Aidan, Fintan, Joseph, Reid, Angelica, Grace, and Ashley.  Well done.  Best wishes to Fintan and Joseph who will be representing St Leo’s at the TCDSB City Championships this week.  GO LIONS!!!!
Congratulations to parents Tania Zoldak and Brandi Ward who have both been nominated for the Ontario Association of Parents in Catholic Education (OAPCE) Parent Volunteer of Excellence Award.  Tania and Brandi volunteer a tremendous amount of their time for St Leo’s and have been doing so for years.  They are both well deserving of this award.  The award ceremony will be held on November 6th at the TCDSB building (80 Sheppard Ave East) at 6:00 pm.  All are welcome.


Below are all the updates you need for this week:
Thanks to all the families who participated in the cookie dough fundraiser.  Fulfilled orders will be delivered on November 16th - which lines up with parent teacher interviews - so parents can pick up the cookie dough that evening.  All the funds raised will be going into the nutrition program.  Thanks for your support.
The SEE HEAR CLINIC will be held tomorrow – Monday, October 23rd. If you want your child to participate, please have your child bring in the permission form (and fee - $15.00) first thing in the morning.
