Welcome to 2018! The staff at St. Teresa are excited to begin a new year and we look forward to continuing to teaching and learning with your children!
Beginning of the New Year
Every good gift comes from the Father of light.
May He grant you His grace and every blessing,
And keep you safe throughout the upcoming year.
May He grant you unwavering faith,
Constant hope, and love that endures always.
May He order your days and work in His peace,
Hear your every prayer,
And lead you to everlasting life and joy.
Wintery Weather Reminders…
When we experience wintry weather throughout the year families often have many questions. Considering this we are informing the community of the policy that is followed when deciding to keep students indoors during winter. Students will remain inside when temperatures, including wind chill, are at or below minus 20°C. Otherwise, all students will go outside for recesses and lunches. Students must dress for the weather and be prepared to be outside before school, during the two 15-minute recess and the 40-minute lunch breaks.
Please check the weather each day before your child(ren) leave for school to ensure that they are coming to school dressed appropriately to go outside every day.
In the event of severe weather, please listen to the local radio stations for school closure or bus cancellation information beginning at 6:45 a.m. Announcements are made approximately every quarter hour. Additionally, all cancellation updates can be found on the WCDSB website (www.wcdsb.ca) under the Cancellations tab.
Here are some tips for walking to school in the winter:
- Wear a hat…up to 50% of body heat can be lost through your head, so keep it covered;
- Walk with smaller steps to improve footing on slippery sidewalks;
- Wear mittens…they are warmer than gloves;
- Use a lip protector (such as a lip balm) on your lips;
- Walk with a buddy…talk about all the great winter scenery
