Administration Message

A warm welcome back is extended to all of our families within the Saint Anne Roman Catholic Elementary School Community. We certainly hope that the holiday season was one filled with memorable moments and wonderful blessings.

It was great to see so many of you at our School Advent Mass, Christmas Concert and all Christmas events during the month of December. Thanks for sharing in our school spirit.

It was incredible to witness so many generous donations that went toward the Angel Tree and our senior citizens in our community. Saint Anne School Community certainly demonstrated the call to service through their acts of kindness, and sincere appreciation is extended to all.

As we begin another year, let us take the time to celebrate, and remember to be grateful for our many blessings, reflect on what was good during the past year, perhaps what was not so good, and what we want to do differently in this New Year.

ECO News

Thank you Golden Stars for making it a GREEN Christmas here at St. Anne’s! On the last day of school for 2017, we may have looked ugly but we sure were snugly…thanks to our successful Ugly Christmas Sweater Day. We saved A LOT of energy by turning the heat DOWN and bundling UP. Way to go!

 And there’s more good news! Our EcoTeam was searching and searching to find a classroom for our Energy Hog…but they couldn’t! That means all of our classes had lights, computers, and Brightlinks turned off when they weren’t being used. Keep it up!

 Our New Year’s Resolution is to reduce the amount of contamination in our garbage cans. On our next Waste Minimization Walkabout, we hope to find all recycling in the blue bins, all food scraps and tissues in the green bins, all paper in the white bins, and only school garbage in our garbage cans because home garbage has been boomeranged. Can we do it, Golden Stars?!?

St. Anne School Library Learning Commons

 

 

 

The Forest of Reading has started!!

A very BIG Thank You to the Saint Anne School Council for once again supporting the Forest of Reading Literary Event. The School Library Learning Commons has received 70 new books that our school population will enjoy, read and vote upon for best Canadian Author for 2018 during January to April 2018.

Interest from students is at an all-time high.  The Silver Birch  Fiction and Red Maple nominated books are flying off the shelf! Students can still register to be in the program until the end of January.

The Grade 7 students will once again create skits from the Blue Spruce nominated books and present to Primary Grades who will then be able to vote on their favorite.  Grade 7 students will also be making the voting boxes this year based on the book selections.  Looking forward to viewing all the art that the Forest of Reading is inspiring!

Happy Reading!

Damaged Books Returned

With the unpredictable weather and water bottles accidentally opening in backpacks we are having many books returned to the library wet or water damaged.  If you could put your child’s borrowed library books in a plastic bag or Ziploc bag in their backpacks that would help in keeping them safe.

Thank you very much for your consideration.

Tech Talks @ St. Anne

What is STEM?

STEM is an approach used to integrate studies that combine science, technology, engineering, and math. At the heart of STEM is the notion that students are creators, and hands-on learning plays a key role in education…. BUT HELP!  I’m not technologically literate so how can I help?

* Take a walk in your backyard and nature
* Visit a museum 
* Buy something at a garage sale and take it apart 
* Fix a broken toy instead of throwing it away 
* Take a calculator to the grocery store and find the best price
