Dear St. Luke families:
Please see below for a few updates…
Access to the School
As you know, we are already making tentative plans for the pick-up of personal items and report cards, drop-off of school items (library books, text books, etc.), locker clean-out, and all of the other necessary year-end procedures. We are just waiting for approval to proceed with the communication of our final plans. Please check NewsWire regularly during the month of June so you don’t miss out on important and time-sensitive information.
As we look ahead to the June calendar, we are truly sad that we will not be able to spend it with our students. We are also disappointed that we will miss some special year-end celebrations, especially our year-end mass and volunteer appreciation social. We are so grateful to our volunteers. Thanks for all you do to support us! Please see the attached message for you.
June Umbrella Skill
As we enter the month of June, we begin to focus on the “Healthy Lifestyle” Umbrella Skill. Healthy Lifestyle is one of those Umbrella Skills that really help with the others. For example, if we get enough sleep, eat nutritiously, and exercise, we feel better about ourselves, which might make us more resilient, more likely to develop a growth mindset or do something that intrinsically motivates us. Good luck working on this month’s Umbrella Skill, Lightning!
2019-2020 St. Luke Yearbook
The deadline for ordering your 2019-2020 St. Luke Yearbook is fast approaching. Please see the attached flyer and make sure you order by June 15th!
Statement from the Waterloo Catholic District School Board re Pride Month
After receiving feedback from the broader community – but, more importantly, also from some of our students — it is clear that the WCDSB’s decision to fly a provincially developed image on a flag during June, to mark Pride month, which was intended to send a message of unity and support, has instead led to division.
Out of sincere respect for all viewpoints shared, the school board will not fly any flag during Pride month.
The proposed flag will be displayed in school foyers throughout the 2020-21 school year, as the school board consults with the LGBTQ community on next steps leading to Pride Month 2021.
