CONNECTING COMMUNITIES ONE CRATE AT A TIME

posted Apr 29, 2017, 4:19 PM by St. Luke ‎(Nepean)‎ School

    The grade five students in Mme. Bilder and Mrs. DiGaetano’s class have engaged in a Deep Learning journey alongside the grade 2 students at St. Anne. We have partnered with students at Alookie Elementary School in Pangnirtung, Nunavut to learn about Inuit culture and community. Throughout our journey we have learned that food and shipping costs in Nunavut are unbelievably high and decided we wanted to do something about it.

    The Northern Shopper generously donated two crates to our project. We plan to fill these crates with supplies tailored to the specific needs of the Pangnirtung community and ship them once the ice permits.

    In order to cover the cost of these supplies and shipping, the students at all three schools took pictures of their communities and created an awe inspiring photobook. This unique photobook is a collection of visual representations of the similarities and difference within our communities with multilingual captions written by the students.  The proceeds from each book will go directly towards this cause.

    You can purchase a copy for $15.00 in the Learning Commons or through School Cash Online beginning Education Week.

      



Thank you,

The grade 5 students

Kindergarten Registration Week!

posted Jan 12, 2017, 7:25 AM by St. Luke ‎(Nepean)‎ School   [ updated Jan 12, 2017, 7:25 AM ]

Welcome to all our new families! Full-day Kindergarten registration for both JK and SK will occur at the school during the week of January 16th –20th on a drop-in basis between 9:30am and 3:00pm. It takes approximately an hour to complete the paperwork. We will have an open house in a Kindergarten classroom each day of registration from 9:30am- 11:30am so that parents can see the program in action. A Birth Certificate and updated immunization card will be required for each child. If the child or parent(s) is Catholic, then we will request a copy of the baptismal certificate, but this is no longer necessary in order to register. Photo identification will be requested of all parents who are registering. If both parents do not have custody of the child, then court documents will be requested confirming custodial arrangements. Emergency phone contacts, caregiver information, and medical concerns are examples of other information needed at the time of registration. Please share this information with your relatives, friends and neighbours who also might be interested in enrolling at St. Luke. We hope to see you, and we welcome all!
