Municipal Election Voting

Our school gym will be closed on Monday, October 22nd, as it is being used as a voting station for the Municipal election. There will be a security guard at the school to help guide the voters to and from the polling station and voters will only have access to the washrooms that are connected to the gym, which the students will not be using. 

Spirit Wear and Class of 19 Clothing

The 2018 St. Michael Corkery Spirit Wear for all students and the Class of 19 clothing for the Grade 6 students will be available for order on School Cash Online, starting this week. For a list of available items, sizes and prices, please see the spirit wear link and the Class of 19 clothing link. The deadline for both orders is Tuesday, October 30th.

Bus Evacuation Practice

On Tuesday, October 16th, our students will be working with OSTA and Premier Bus Lines to practice a bus evacuation in the event of an emergency situation. The teachers will be showing the students videos to prepare and then going through a practice on a bus.

Fire Drills and Lockdown Practice

We have completed two successful fire drills so far this school year. On Wednesday, October 10th, the students and staff exited the building very quickly and quietly. We will be completing four more fire drills over the course of the school year. We will also be having two lockdown practices with our school resource officer. We will have one lockdown practice before Christmas and one lockdown practice in the new year. All teachers review the steps students need to take during fire drills and lockdown practices to ensure successful completion of the tasks.

Cross Country Meet

Our cross country running team will be heading to the Terry Fox Athletic Facility, at 2960 Riverside Drive, with Mr. Williams on Wednesday, October 17th for their competition. We know they will do a wonderful job representing the school. Go Cubs!

School Council Looking for Volunteers

The School Council is currently looking for volunteers to help run the lunch programs (Pizza Day and Hot dog day). The orders for these programs were submitted last week on School Cash Online. In order for these programs to run successfully, Council relies on parent volunteers to help with the classroom deliveries and clean up. Council hopes that you will be able to sign up for some of the dates throughout the year to help us make these programs successful.
A reminder that all volunteers now REQUIRE a Vulnerable Sector Check. This is a new requirement for 2018. The form below will allow you to apply online at no cost. Without a completed Vulnerable Sector Check parents or caregivers can not volunteer in the school or on field trips. Please start the process now, if you wish to volunteer at any of your child's activities. Turnaround time from the Ottawa Police varies with volume received.…/0Bx_1fOlpwQKubWIwVFNDSjEyNX…/view…/Level-3---Vulnerable-Sector-C…
