With the cold and rainy season coming, please make sure your child is appropriately dressed for the weather. Students are expected to go outside for recess in order to get some exercise and fresh air. Coats, gloves, hats and boots are recommended, depending on the weather. Please make sure your child has everything he or she needs before coming to school.
If it is raining when your child comes to school, the students are permitted to go directly into the classrooms. They must still go through their designated doors and not through the front doors. Any outdoor footwear must be removed immediately upon entering the school. Please make sure that all coats, boots, umbrellas, etc. are labeled with your child’s name.
We are supporting Street Ministry again this year. One way the children can support this ministry is by donating leftover Halloween candy. A donation box will be placed in the front hallway. Thank you for your ongoing support and thoughtfulness. It is through your generosity that we are able to carry out God’s ministry.
This is a reminder that St. Bernadette School will allow students to dress up for Halloween. Student who wish not to dress up may come in Halloween colours or they may wear their uniform.
If your child is coming in costume we would like to once again remind you of the following:
1. Children are not to wear costumes that would be deemed inappropriate. We ask that costumes refrain from portraying violent characters and/or images, and promoting characters and/or imagery that depicts parts of society that causes harm to others.
2. All weapons, no matter how fake or harmless they are (foam, cardboard, etc.), must be kept at home. We have had great success in the past with families complying with this request.
3. When entering the school property we ask that for identity and safety purposes that masks and hoods are removed. They can wear their masks during the Halloween Parade
Please remember that wearing a costume is a privilege and the principal reserves the right to ask any student to remove their costume for any reason.
We will have our annual Costume Parade for the students at 1:00pm on Halloween. Parents are more than welcome to come and watch the students parade from classroom to classroom.
