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!


ECO Schools Message

Dear  St. Luke families,

Our school is enrolled in a large battery recycling challenge beginning today until earth day 2019 in April. We are competing against 200 other schools in Ontario for a grand cash prize.  The school that collects the most batteries for recycling wins.

Families are encouraged to bring batteries from home to recycle at school.  All sorts of household batteries are accepted in the recycling challenge. Collection pails are located throughout the school to facilitate recycling.  Recycling batteries keeps harmful chemicals out of landfill sites. Please see the following link for more details and information.


Thanks from the St. Luke Planetpals Eco Club
