Movember Update

In an effort to raise awareness and money toward men’s health issues, St. Luke is taking on its 7th annual Movember fundraising campaign.   Students are encouraged to bring in a toonie, or whatever they can afford,  to class between November 14th and the 23rd .   The top five classes who bring in the most Movember contributions will earn the right to dye and shave the St. Luke Mo Bros new moustaches.  This will take place on Friday, November 30th.   Later that day, the same day as our school’s Catholic Graduate Expectations (CGE) assembly, a representative from the five winning classes will come up and shave those newly coloured moustaches.   Additionally, on Friday, November 30th, students will receive a Movember moustache sticker to wear for the day.  Our goal this year is to raise $600 toward our Movember campaign.

Thank you in advance for your support of our Movember initiative!  Grow it! Dye it! Shave it! Mr. Bruno, Mr. Risto, Mr. Pratt, Mr. Faux, Mr.Dore, Mr. Mike & Mr. McCarthy

Advent

Advent … a time for waiting and anticipating; a time to prepare our hearts to receive God’s gift of His Son, Jesus.  To help us experience the loving act of sharing and giving to those less fortunate, we invite our community to participate in our Advent outreach project: The Angel Tree Campaign.

Here’s how it works: you will receive a hard copy of a  paper angel from your child, and a list of ways to contribute. If you wish to participate, please select the item(s) which you wish to contribute , attach the angel to it, and then send  to school with your child. No item is too big, or too small. Please bring any items, unwrapped, to the school, with the angel tag, by Friday, December 14th.  With your support, we can make a difference in the lives of some children this Christmas.

Our front lobby display case has a fireplace titled, “The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, along with hats, scarves and mittens for everyone to SHARE”. These items that we collect will be given to the Youville Centre to help make a child's Christmas a little brighter and warmer. Please make sure these items are at the school by Friday. Dec.14th

We will also have 2 spirit theme days during Advent, where we will collect $2 from students and staff. It will be Wear Your Favourite Sports Jersey Day, Wednesday, November 28th. We will have a Wear Your Christmas Colours/ Ugly Sweater Day on Friday, December 7th. All proceeds will go to supporting families in need here in our St Luke School Community.

The act of getting our students directly involved in charitable giving at home and at school lets them take responsibility for helping others who are less fortunate than themselves, building empathy and a sense of belonging to a community. We thank you in advance for your generosity. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teachers if you have any questions.

Remembrance Day Prayer

“God our Father, Your Son Jesus gave up His life to free us from the power of sin and death. He showed us that the greatest love is in giving up one’s life for others. Today, we remember those who fought and died for our freedom. We ask You to bless and console them together with their families. Help us to understand the sacrifices they made in leaving their loved ones to face the horrors of war. May we never forget their generosity. May Your Holy Spirit give us the courage to resist evil in all its forms and show us how to be peacemakers through prayer and action, lest we forget those who fought, suffered and died that we might have the freedom and peace we enjoy today. We ask this through Christ, our Lord.”

Please join us on Friday, November 9th for our Remembrance Day liturgy at 10:45 am. All are welcome to attend.

Poppy stickers and pins will be distributed to all students prior to the ceremony. A donation to the Canadian Legion would be greatly appreciated. Students are asked to wear red or white to school that day. We would like to extend an invitation to all servicemen and women who are currently serving or retired, to be our distinguished guests at the Remembrance Day Liturgy. If you or a family member would like to be our special guest, please call the school at 613-825-2520 to rsvp. This will allow us to welcome all in a special way.

Halloween Costume Day
Students are invited to wear their Halloween costumes to school on Wednesday, October 31st. Students are encouraged to bring a 2$ donation for our United Way Fundraiser. Thank you kindly in advance for your support.

A few requests in regards to Halloween costumes…
Please no masks, props, such as wands, swords, lightsabers, etc., as these can interfere with safe play, and can be distracting while in class. Also, please understand that your child will be involved in a regular school day, so the costume needs to be able to withstand all regular school activities, including going to the washroom by him/herself. We thank you for your cooperation. We certainly don’t want any disappointed children if the costume is ruined before they head out to trick-or-treat!
