Math Professional Development

On Friday, November 16th, staff members all across the Ottawa Catholic School Board participated in Math Professional Development. One of the articles discussed was, "Focusing on the Fundamentals of Math". Here is a link to the "Parent's Guide to the Fundamentals of Math" which offers great ideas on how to support math learning at home. 

Musical Theatre Workshops

We are very fortunate to have Robin Guy leading musical theatre workshops for all of our students, from Monday, November 19th to Friday, November 30th, through our Incentive Fund for the Arts. She is working with each Grade on a piece that will be performed for parents on Monday, December 17th in the gym.  

Notes from Corkery School Council

Thanks to all of the parents who have signed up to help with the food programs. A reminder that a completed Vulnerable Sector Check needs to be brought to the school for all volunteers.

Also, we would like everyone to save the date of Thursday, December 13th for this year’s Christmas in Corkery event . We will need volunteers and we will be posting the volunteer schedule sign up this month.
Finally, if you are looking for a great Christmas gift idea, you can order Equator Coffee on School Cash Online. The orders are placed through School Council, who receives a portion of the proceeds. You can start making orders on
Tuesday, November 20th and the final deadline for orders is Sunday, December 2nd.
If you have any questions please contact your 2018-2019 School council at 

Confirmation Information

A reminder that all Grade 6 students who are interested in receiving the sacrament of Confirmation are required to attend one of the information meetings this week with a parent or guardian. The meetings will be held at St. Michael Parish on Wednesday, November 21st at 7:00pm and Sunday, November 25th at 2:00pm. At the meeting, you will be provided with an overview of the sacrament of Confirmation, the preparation for this sacrament and the schedule of planned activities, along with the registration and permission forms. If you cannot attend one of these meetings, please make an appointment with Father Matthew during parish office hours before the registration deadline of Monday, December 17th.  

Socks and Suds Donations

A reminder that our Grade 6 leadership group is looking for donations for the annual “Socks and Suds” gathering for the Shepherds of Good Hope this week. All students are encouraged to bring in items for those in need. Warm socks, hats, mittens and gloves, as well as shampoo, soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste would be much appreciated.
