A GREAT Start to 2019!

It was a great first week back for the students, staff and families of St. Peter CES! For those who I have not had the privilege of meeting, please introduce yourself to me the next time you are in the building. I tried my best to connect with everyone this week, but it will take a while before I can put a face to each name. We will get there eventually! When you visit St. Peter, you may find me in the office…but more than likely I will be visiting a classroom or meeting with a team about ensuring our school is the best it can possibly be. I have to let you know that I saw so many wonderful things this first week. I tend to document my learning journey on Twitter, and I invite everyone to follow me and the school on Twitter. The links to follow are below:

#BellLetsTalk Day January 30th: Who’s Got Your Back?

The month of January is all about new beginnings and reconnecting with old friends. As we journey as a community, we recognize that healthy relationships are essential to supporting mental health and wellness. We are encouraging you to have conversations at home with your children about who can support them when they are experiencing a challenge. It might be a staff member at the school, an extended family member or a peer. We all need to have each other’s backs at St. Peter and we want our families to be a part of the conversation.

A Message From Remember Me Family (Milk Providers)

In partnership with Remember Me Inc., we will be continuing with our “Milk Program” again this year.  This will give families the option to order milk (white or chocolate) And  Lactose Free (white or chocolate)   for their student(s)  each week.  All orders can be conveniently placed on the Remember Me Inc. website at www.remembermeinc.com. Orders can be conveniently paid by credit card, Debit or Debit Visa cards. Remember Me’s website is a secured “https” web page.    Families with an existing account need to log in and re-create their child’s profile as all data from last year gets erased and we want to ensure that orders get delivered to the correct 2018-2019 classes.  Families new to St. Peter are encouraged to log on to the easy-to-navigate Remember Me website and create your child’s profile.  Milk orders for the months of February and March can now be placed.  All online orders must be made by 3 p.m. at least 2 school days prior to the delivery of the milk. If there are any question or concerns about your child’s milk order, please contact Marlene at RMI at 519-620-0303ex 1 or you can email her at mdoolan@remembermeinc.com. We highly encourage putting your child’s milk order in their agenda so they are aware as to when they will be receiving their milk. Please note that school staff are not responsible for the milk program. We are an outside company that provides a full service for parents. If there is a concern with your child’s order please contact Remember Me directly.
