Upcoming Events and important information

Puberty and Sex Talks

Recently, families received an email about upcoming puberty and sex education afternoons for Grades 5 & 6 students. The school is offering information packages at the office for those who want to learn more. While attendance is not mandatory, parents have the option to pick up their child at noon on Tuesday, June 4th & 11th if they prefer.  (For 5 & 5/6) Grade five students will only attend the first session on puberty this year and will not participate in the sex education afternoon.

Pokemon Cards

We ask that Pokemon cards be kept at home to prevent distractions and disruptions in the classroom and playground. Thank you for your support in creating a conducive learning environment.

Uniform policy on shorts & Uniform fitting tomorrow

This is a friendly reminder that we will be hosting a uniform fit day on Wednesday, May 15th in the church lobby from 1:00 – 5:00. This is a great opportunity for parents to ensure their children have the correct sizes for the upcoming school year. We will have McCarthy staff on hand to assist with fittings and answer any questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you there!

 

Shorts & Sandals

 

As we welcome the arrival of warmer weather, we kindly remind everyone that on Friday Knight’s Day and casual field trip days, it’s important to ensure that casual shorts meet the school’s dress code. According to the uniform policy, all shorts should reach the length of the student’s extended fingertips when standing with arms flat against their sides.  For students in grades 3-6, please note that shorts not meeting this requirement will result in wearing gym strip shorts instead, and K-2 students will need a parent to bring in an appropriate pair of shorts. During this season, sandals in black, brown, grey, white, or a mix of these colours are suitable, but they must have a back strap for student safety during recess. Thank you for your cooperation and support in maintaining a respectful and appropriate dress code.
