Dear Panther Parents and Guardians,
Please plan to join us on Thursday, May 9th at 6pm for an informative and engaging evening with Dr. Jenn, the founder of the Umbrella Project. As you know, our school has embraced the Umbrella Project and, thanks to the generous support of your Catholic School Advisory Council, we will be hosting an interactive evening so that you may learn more about how these skills and attributes will help your child to learn and grow. Ask your child about the many skills we have highlighted so far this year and visit the parent resource section of the website for more information. https://umbrellaproject.co/parents/
We would love for ALL Panther families (and friends and community members) to attend so we will be providing babysitting IF needed. This will allow for parents to fully engage in the learning. Please feel free to invite your neighbours and friends, even if they don’t attend St. Boniface, as the messages Dr Jenn shares are truly helpful for everyone! We will be collecting a donation for “Twoonies for Tuition” at the door. This organization supports students in other provinces in Canada so that they may attend a Catholic School. We are so fortunate in Ontario to have fully funded Catholic education, but other provinces are not so lucky. Our board is committed to helping through donations and advocacy. Our $2 donation will go to ensure many students have the opportunity to receive Catholic education. Since this event takes place during Catholic Education Week, this seems very appropriate.
Just complete the form that has been sent home with your child indicating your attendance and the number of guests you wish to bring so that we can provide pizza, light refreshments and ensure adequate seating. You may also indicate if you require babysitting services.
We look forward to seeing everyone at 6pm on the 9th!
Marylin Dawson and Julie Kobe
Principal Chair of the Catholic School Advisory Council
