Municipal Election Voting

Our school gym is 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. No orders will be accepted after the due date.

Bus Evacuation and Lockdown Practice

Tuesday, October 16th was a day with a focus on safety at our school. The students worked with drivers from Premier Bus Lines to practice a bus evacuation in the event of an emergency situation. The students took the drills very seriously and the drivers were quite impressed with their efforts. The students also did a great job during our first lockdown practice that morning. Our School Resource Officer complimented our classes for being so prepared, quiet and focused.

School Photo Orders

All of the student photo order forms were sent home with the students last week from Edge Imaging. The pictures look wonderful. All completed order forms, with payment included, need to be returned to the school by Friday, October 26th. Alternatively, the orders can be placed online, using the information on the front of the order form.

Halloween Kindergarten Costume Parade

On Wednesday, October 31st all Kindergarten students are invited to wear their costumes for their costume parade through the school. All students in Grades 1-6 are invited to wear orange and black to school on Halloween.

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…
