Safety Information at Canadian Martyrs!

Hey Crusaders!

Please take a look at the following resources that have been shared with your children.

We have discussed this with the classes and those students on the bus.

We have also been looking to discuss “Bullying” with our students at their class meetings so that we can all know what it looks like and what it doesn’t.

These are great conversation starters for conversations at home.

Stay Safe Crusaders!

Annual Terry Fox Walk is this week at Canadian Martyrs!

Hello Crusaders Community!

On Thursday, October 26th, 2019 at 1:00pm our students will gather in the gym to view a short video about the life and mission of Terry Fox.  He is a great Canadian Hero and a role model for us all.  During some very challenging life situations he had a choice – he made the choice to raise awareness and money to search for a cure for cancer.  We continue his work this week!

We will gather in the gym for a short while and then we will hit the sidewalks!  If you are in the area, you will see us walking around our school property and around our neighbourhood!  We will do this to raise awareness and we ask for donations to raise money to be donated to the cause!

Did you know that in just over 10 years, our school has raised a total of $61,000!  That is something to be so proud of and I am so thankful to be in such a generous community!  This year, we will collect donations again and continue to add to our total.

Donate what you can.  Come walk with us.  Continue to support this great cause and let Terry’s legacy live on!

Looking forward to it Crusaders!

Canadian Martyrs after hours…

Dear Crusaders Community,

The Waterloo Regional Police are investigating an act of vandalism at our school over the weekend.  On Friday and Sunday, police were notified that our building had been hit with spray paint.

Our board’s maintenance department and professional clean-up crews acted quickly and we are so thankful for their support.  Police are asking that anyone with information on the graffiti contact them or Crime Stoppers.

We would ask that our neighbours and community members be diligent in keeping an eye on our building after hours and if you see anything suspicious, contact the police.

At this time, we do not feel that there is any safety concerns to any staff or students.

Thanks Crusaders!

Hey Crusaders! Did you know???

Good Morning Crusaders!

Did you know that the Nutrition for Learning program is coming to Canadian Martyrs?  This means that we will be getting several, school-safe snacks that we are able to provide to our classrooms.  We will deliver these bins and if students are feeling hungry, and they have finished their food from home, they can take a snack!  This has proven to be great for kids and for learning!  Thank you Nutrition for Learning!

Did you know that this year, we will continue to partner with our friends at KidsAbility to offer services for several of our students?  They are a huge supporter of our kids and our larger community!  Thank you KidsAbility!

Lastly, did you know that the “SMILE COOKIE” campaign is a huge supporter of both of these programs?  The entire dollar spent supports both Nutrition for Learning and KidsAbility!  Next week, when you are buying your Smile Cookies, you are supporting both of these important programs – and our students!  Purchasing a Smile Cookie is a little thing that makes a big difference – and they taste pretty good too!

Looking forward to seeing the SMILE COOKIES and the programs that they support!
