Progress Report Interviews Tonight

Just a reminder that tonight we welcome families to our Progress Report interviews with students, parents, and Educators at St. Margaret school in-person!
Please enter and exit through the Divisional Doors that the students regularly use. They will know what this means. All doors will remain open during the Interview times between 3:30 p.m. and 8:40 p.m.
Staff will be taking a break at 5:30 – 6:00 p.m.
If you are unable to attend, please contact your classroom teacher and other arrangements will be made.
If families wish to speak to other staff, please make contact by email to make an appointment for another time.
Thanks for your continued support!

Pizza Cancelled Tuesday November 22nd

Unfortunately pizza was cancelled for tomorrow, Tuesday November 22nd as we assumed we would be at home learning virtually.

We are happy to share that the students will be in school tomorrow with a regular schedule! Please dress for the winter weather!

Please return the chrome books to each classroom with the students, to facilitate signing them back in.

Progress Report Cards will be sent home on Monday November 21st, and Interviews will take place by phone, email or on Thursday November 24th, with a confirmation in the Progress Report envelope.

Monday November 21st, PM we welcome the ‘Lady of the Cape’ statue from St. Patrick Church for schoolwide devotions.

This week we begin our Nutrition for Learning Program, where students will have access to snacks throughout the day in classes!!

Hot Lunches are back!

St. Margaret Families:

We will now be offering our ‘Hot Lunch Program’ thanks to the many hours our Catholic School Council chairs have put in to make things work with new vendors and unforeseen challenges!

Pizza has begun this week. My apology that it was up and running before the Office was made aware and we did not send you a reminder. Some families did place an order.

Beginning next week, we will offer Pizza on Tuesdays and lunch on Fridays with a rotating schedule of East Side Mario, Harvey’s, Pita Pit, and Subway. Orders must be placed the Sunday before by 12:00 p.m.

You must have a Cash-on-line account. Click ‘order now’ on the blue Lunchbox tab at the top of the page.
