Grade 7

News for Monday October 30th – Friday November 3rd 2017


Tuesday is Halloween – or all hallows eve because it is the evening before our Catholic holy days of All Hallows’ Day (or All Saints’ Day) on November 1st and All Souls’ Day on November 2nd.

We encourage the students to come in costume. However, they should abide by our school guidelines as outined by Mrs. Moorehead:

We are a Catholic community, therefore costumes must be modest, respectful of others, and free of offensive language.

We are focused on student safety and peace of mind, therefore: no weapons or replica weapons of any kind (guns, swords, knives, chains, etc.); no blood or slime; no witches, ghosts, goblins, zombies, or scary monsters.

We are a learning community, therefore students must be able to sit at their desk comfortably and consider the space of others (no big hats or wide wings); fully participate in all class activities (including PE and recess times); and see and hear clearly (no face masks).

If your child does not wish to dress in costume, orange and black colours are an appropriate option for dress down.

All students are asked to bring $2.00 for Development and Peace.


If your child will be bringing a treat to share with his/her classmates, please be sure to have a treat for all members of the class, and to wrap each treat individually.

All treats must be nut free.

All treats will be sent home with Mr. Kirkham—er– I mean with your child at the end of the day, and not consumed at school. Although, Mr. Kirkham will happily accept any Halloween treats. No tricks, please!


Retakes for Life Touch photo will be on Thursday November 2nd.


Friday November 3rd is the Walkathon Prize Day Assembly where the winning class for most money raised will receive a pizza lunch!


The Grade Seven class will be in charge of the Remembrance Day assembly which will take place on Friday November 10th at 10:45am. Please join us if you can!
