Terry Fox Message 

The students of St. Luke experienced fabulous fall weather when participating in the Terry Fox School Run on Friday, September 20. For 30 minutes, classes walked, ran, and wheeled around a course set up on the field next to the school. This event was the culmination of a week of information and discussion about Terry Fox and his legacy. Thank you to all parents who supported their children in their quest to contribute “Toonies for Terry”. If you wish, donations can still be made at the TerryFox.org website. Keep an eye out for next week's update to see the amount of our school's donation to the Terry Fox Foundation. This is just another example of how St. Luke lives the Gospel Value of Community!

Eco School Update

Hello St. Luke families new and old!  Welcome back to another year of learning, growing and recycling at St. Luke School.  We have many recycling projects on the go this school year that we would like you to be aware of.  Please take part in our initiatives and help teach your children the importance of being stewards of the environment.  This summer, the City of Ottawa approved the use of plastic bags in green bins for composting. Do you find you still have a lot of plastic bags you would rather not throw away?  Bring your clean, dry plastic bags to St. Luke where we have bag recycling. Our plastic bag bins in the school get emptied and used by Trex Composite Decking Materials to make deck boards (www.trex.com) keeping plastic out of landfills.  We also have Shoe recycling at school.  Shoes can be dropped off to be recycled and sent into the community and beyond  thanks to soles4souls.org.  St. Luke continues the Crayola Colour Cycle program.  All brands of dried out markers can be submitted to the marker recycling bottles in each class.  We continue to recycle blue and black box items in class. Stay tuned for more eco initiatives coming soon!
