2018/19 Lockdown Practices and Fire Drills Completed and Mazzola Update

posted Jun 18, 2019, 10:13 AM by St. Michael ‎(Corkery)‎ School

Congratulations to all of our students for doing an amazing job on our final lockdown practice of the year this morning. Our School Resource Officer was very impressed with how well our students and teachers did. We have also completed our required fire drills for the year. The students have done a great job with all of our practice safety drills this school year.

Finally, there was an error on our school calendar and newsletter with regard to the Mazzola Food Program. Mazzola will be offered on Friday, June 21st and again on the final Mazzola Lunch Program day on Tuesday, June 25th. Sorry for the mistake, but on the bright side, if you have placed an order, you will have one less day to make lunches next Tuesday!

A reminder that on Tuesday, April 23rd, the Grade 6 students and staff will be playing a game of floorball. All students are encouraged to bring in a donation in support of Chalice, as part of our Lenten project. Also, some of our Grade 4 students have started a social justice project and are asking our school community to help others in need by bringing in used hockey equipment on the day of the floorball game. The used equipment will be donated to the Jumpstart program, which helps to give disadvantaged youth opportunities to get started in sports.
