West Coast Recess

Living in a rain forest offers many diverse weather conditions. It makes sense therefore, we are well prepared to be outside in the rain.  It is important for children to get outside throughout the day for fresh air and exercise. Research has proven time and time again, the impact that physical activity has on learning. For this reason, many local schools and districts are adopting a West Coast Recess.Our Lady of Mercy School will be implementing the West Coast Recess effective Monday, September 23, 2019.  Please see the attachments for further information.

Please Do Not Combine Different Payments Together

Be mindful when handing in forms/payments to the school. We have several forms/payments coming in from our students various times of the year. If sending different forms/payments (ie. Hot lunch, skating, etc.) please ensure to hand in each form/payment in separate envelopes or baggies, clearly indicating what it is for.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Skating / Autumn Colour Day

Students in Grades 2, 5, and 6 have skating on Tuesday, September 17th.  Students in all other grades are permitted to dress in autumn colours as long as they bring a toonie donation to school next Tuesday.

The recipient will still receive the full face value of the card.

Purchase gift cards to use them for your holiday shopping or give them away to family and friends as Christmas presents.

Attached is the gift card order form. For your reference, the percentage awarded to the school is indicated for each gift card on the list. The more gift cards you order, the more funds are raised for the school.

Please fill in and submit the order form along with your payment no later than Tuesday, December 11thCash or Cheques payable to Our Lady of Mercy School will be accepted.

Gift cards will be available during the last week of school before Christmas break.

5% of your total order will be credited to your annual fundraising commitment fee.
