Hello St Leo Community,


Congratulations to the boys and girls basketball teams which made St. Leo’s proud this past week.  Both teams came in 3rd.  Go Lions Go!!


Thank you to all the parents who ran hot dog day on Friday.  Thanks to the families that supported the Swim Team with this fundraiser.


The annual dance-a-thon will take place the Thursday, February 14th.  Pledge forms are due no later than Monday February 11th.  Please note that if you want tax receipts to be issued, please ensure the addresses on the pledge forms are complete (including postal codes) and legible.  If you would like a tax receipt and you are writing a cheque, please make it payable to St Leo C.S.


Below are all the updates you need for the coming weeks:

  1. As part of our Physical Education program, the grades 4-8 students will be participating in 2 days of downhill skiing at Mount St. Louis Moonstone on Tuesday, February 19th and Tuesday, February 26th. This year we have added a second ski date as part of a promotion that we were the recipient of. Therefore, the cost is the same if a student cannot attend a second date.  IMPORTANT: Spaces are limited.  We are only accepting 50 students on a first come, first served basis, but there are a few spots left. Please make your online payment to reserve your spot, then return the permission form by Monday, February 11th.  NOTE: WE HAVE RECEIVED A LOT OF PAYMENTS BUT ARE MISSING PERSMISSION FORMS. PLEASE ENSURE THAT THE FORMS ARE SENT TO THE OFFICE.

  2. Report cards will be sent home in backpacks on Tuesday February 12th.

  3. Parent teacher interviews will be held this week on the evenings of Wednesday February 13th and Thursday February 14th

  4. When coming to the school to meet with your children’s teachers this week, please be sure to leave some time to visit the gym.  There you will find the Math Gallery and also one of Mrs. Ugrin’s favourite displays all year – family portraits drawn by each and every student.  Don’t miss them!

  5. Friday February 15th is a PA Day.

  6. Monday February 18th is Family Day and a school holiday.

  7. The annual St Leo Auction and Community Night has been rescheduled to Friday April 26th.  If you would like to volunteer for this event, please let me know and I will make sure you are invited to the kick off meeting, which will be called shortly.
