Council Corner

Maureen and I (Christie) would personally like to welcome new/old families back to St. Francis of Assisi.

Just last week was our school BBQ, and it was huge success. We would like to personally THANK Valerie Burns and our BBQ Committee, our event volunteers (parents and students) and our generous sponsors who made it all happen:

·         John Walsh - The Snug (all the hamburgers and hotdogs)

·         Ryan Ormiston - Newcastle Foodland (all the buns, chips, drinks, napkins, condiments and even supplied a back-up BBQ for us to use)

·         Newcastle Lions Club (the BBQs and people to cook for us)

·         Algoma Orchards (Apples) Durham Police Service (Ride truck, K9 officer)

·         Clarington Fire (Fire Truck, Sparky)

·         Chantelle Reid (The Lunch Lady)

At our council table at the BBQ we had “Guess the Candy” jars.  We would like to announce our winners which were: Emma Grade 4, Lyla Grade 6, Dakota Grade 7, Bastian Grade 2 and Josh Grade 8. Enjoy your winnings!!!

We encourage parents to come out to our council meetings, which are held once a month on Tuesdays at 6:15 pm in the library.  If you couldn’t make it out last Tuesday, we are extending nominations for Parent Representatives (the Executive has been voted in). We would definitely like to see some new faces, and fresh ideas.

Mark down these upcoming CSC meeting dates:

October 17, November 14, January 16, February 13, April 17, May 15 and June 19th.

Feel free to reach out to myself or Maureen if you have any concerns or suggestions
