Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s), 

As we begin the month of March, we continue to reflect upon the sacrifices we are making during this Lenten season, as well as feel the excitement of moving closer towards the coming Easter celebrations.   

February saw several activities and events come through our school, enriching the school environment for our students.  There was Ballroom Dancing for our Grade 6’s, a MADD Canada presentation for our Intermediate students, a Debating competition for our Intermediate Gifted class, as well as the continuation of our Coding sessions for some of our Grade 3 to 8 students.  Pancake Tuesday was a huge success, coordinated by our Grade 8 students, while we were able to celebrate Ash Wednesday as a school community the very next day.  Our school’s basketball teams competed in their Divisional Tournaments, while our Junior W5H team did extremely well in their Preliminary Competition.  Our Grade 2 to 8 classes were able to go see a Marlie game, while our Grade 7 parents had their information night regarding the Grade 7 overnight trip to Pioneer Camp in April.  Last, but not least, Report Cards and Parent/Teacher Interviews were a big part of this past month as well, and it was a great couple of evenings of parents and teachers discussing the great students of our school.  We are looking forward to the month of March to be an equally busy time for our students here at St. Clement.     

Our Staff continues to focus on effective Math strategies in their classrooms, while also building the Growth Mindset that ‘Mistakes are Valuable’ with their students’ overall learning in Math (just like with all learning).  We have also reflected on how the specific definition of “homework” needs to be highlighted, ensuring that it is a helpful tool for students and their learning.  I have attached 2 new links below that I trust will be helpful to Parents reinforcing the “Mistakes are Valuable” notion with their child at home.
