Earth Hour and Earth Day

EARTH HOUR

Started by WWF and partners as a symbolic lights-out event in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour is now one of the world’s largest grassroots movements for the environment. Held every year on the last Saturday of March, Earth Hour engages millions of people in more than 180 countries and territories, switching off their lights to show support for our plane

St. Margaret School will be celebrating Earth Hour during the last hour of the school day. The official Earth Hour is tomorrow, Saturday, March 27, 2021, between 8:30 PM and 9:30 PM if your family is interested in turning off the lights and electronics and doing something different by candlelight or flashlight.

The official 2021 video for Earth Hour is located at:

St Margaret Plantable Fundraiser

Dear Parents,

We’re very excited to announce that we’ve chosen to be a part of the Plantables School Fundraising Program for 2021.

We’re aiming to raise $3000 to fund our Green Team Projects around the school and every box of plants you buy helps us get closer to that goal. (We get 10% of the total of every order you place.)

Who are Plantables?

Plantables are an exciting new startup based in Forest, Ontario that grow healthy, hardy and happy fruit and vegetable plants and ship them to arrive at your door exactly when they need to go into the ground.

That means that no matter how busy you are, how unsuccessful you’ve been at growing plants before or how many little hands want to help out, you’ll be able to grow brag-worthy fruits and veggies in no time.

All you have to do is pick what plants you want to grow, choose when you want them delivered and wait for your box of garden-ready plants to arrive on your doorstep.

How does the program work?

All you have to do is tell everybody you know to go to plantables.ca. If they want to buy garden-ready fruit and vegetable plants for their garden, make sure they enter the code StMargaretGarden at the checkout.

We’re excited to be launching a fundraiser that involves growing healthy fruits and veggies and spending time as a family and we can’t wait to see how much we all can raise.

With the weather warming up and many of you thinking about rolling up your sleeves and getting back into the garden, it’s a great time to help us hit our goal.

Not only do Plantables let you grow the same high-quality fruit and veggie plants used by farmers across the country, but they deliver your ready-to-plant plants to your front door exactly when you need them.

That means all you do is plant them in the ground, give them some love and water and you’ll have tasty fruits and veggies in no time. (They’re all certified organic plants, too!)

If you — or anybody you know — is looking to fill out their vegetable patch, tell them to head to plantables.ca and enter StMargaretGarden at the checkout. (Don’t forget the code!)

Thanks for all your support!

2021-2022 Transition to Virtual School Survey

Please complete the following survey if your family wishes to choose virtual learning for next school year. The choice for virtual will be a choice for September through June, there will not be transition periods during the year.

Realizing that the landscape continues to change, we will confirm your choice with you in June (through one final survey open to all), but we will be seeking your interest now, so we can determine the demand for the virtual option.  If you register for St. Isidore, our virtual school, you will no longer be affiliated with your current home school, (for the 2021-2022 school year).  You will have the option to re-register for the following school year (2022-2023).

Survey Date: March 15th @ 9 a.m. to March 19th @ 6 p.m.
Survey Link: https://wcdsb.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2oaynXLdeB6dQZo

The link will also be available at https://www.wcdsb.ca.

If you are unsure about the difference between VIRTUAL and REGULAR school, please visit: https://www.wcdsb.ca/plan-for-re-opening-schools/#models

 

 

 

 

 
 

First Communion Registration for Grade 2

Grade 2 Parents of St. Margaret and St. Isidore:

On-line registration for First Communions will start Tuesday, March 16th.

(Regarding St. Isidore students, once they fill out the form, the church will be in contact with them regarding the date and time of their First Communion.)

The form is on the Parish Website and can be accessed simply by clicking on “Sacrament Registration.” They will need to complete the form and drop off their $30 registration/administration fee to the parish. We now have a secure mailbox in which they can drop off the fee at any time, either by cheque made out to St. Patrick’s Parish, or cash. In the envelope with their fee, they need to clearly indicate who this is for (Child’s name) and what this is for (Sacrament of First Holy Communion) which school they attend (Name of school) and if they are in person or online.  

If there are any inquiries regarding the sacrament, or the fee, please contact the parish as this is a parish event.

Student Masks and Theme days!!

Student Masks:

We have received a shipment of student masks from the Ministry- our last shipment for this school year. The masks have been individually packaged and provided to each grades JK-8 classroom teacher for distribution. The student masks are adjustable, and washable with soap and cold water.

Students are encouraged to have more than 1 mask at school so to have the opportunity to change/refresh particularly when returning from outdoor play.

The office has additional/spare masks in case they are needed by students as back ups.

Theme days for next week:
