Students and staff can record the books/magazines they have read on this reading log so that we can tally up the total number of items read by all. • Staff Volleyball Activity: The staff members from École St. Paul School will challenge the Grade 7/8 students to a friendly volleyball game. We at École St. Paul School would like to extend a special invitation to all parents to witness the many enjoyable and educational activities planned for our Education Week Have a great Education Week everyone!

Rental of School Helmets and Skates for Skating
Each year our Grade 1 to 8 students have the opportunity to go skating at Archibald Arena. Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools Physical Education Guidelines state that all students who participate in a skating activity must wear a C.S.A. approved hockey helmet (not a bike helmet) when skating. If your child does not have access to a hockey helmet and/or skates, you may rent one from the school. A donation is welcome ($5.00 for helmets and $3.00 for skates) to cover the cost of helmet replacement and sharpening expenses. If you wish to make a donation, please pay by cash or cheques payable to École St. Paul CSCC. PARENTS ARE ASKED TO COME TO THE SCHOOL AND FIT THEIR CHILD before the scheduled skating day. Rented helmets and skates must remain at the school.

Spirit Day

Friday, October 30th, all students from École St. Paul School will be participating in their second Spirit Day of the year, ‘Orange and Black Day/Halloween Costume Day”. Grade 1 to 8 students are invited to dress in orange and black or they can change into a simple costume for their class party or dance. Simple costume meaning costumes which allow students to move freely in gym, not cover their faces or involve accessories (i.e. weapons, capes, etc…) which may cause injury at recess or be lost in the excitement of the afternoon activities. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. Points will be awarded to the House League teams for the students who participate.

Recycling SaskTel Telephone Books
École St. Paul School is once again participating in the SaskTel Telephone Book Recycling Program. Please consider participating in this recycling program as SaskTel has a monetary incentive reward program for those schools who are involved in the Telephone Directory Recovery Campaign. Do not send your old phone books to school as SaskTel simply request that parent(s) recycle phone books at the nearest recycling bin in their area. Parents are then asked to phone Mme Poelzer, our Office Coordinator, to inform her on how many books they have recycled. We will keep count at the school and submit the numbers by Friday, October 30th, 2009. Thank you for participating in the recycling program.

Photo Retakes

Retakes are scheduled for Friday, October 23rd. Please send your child's 1st photo proof with them to school that day and mark it "RETAKES PLEASE".

Tip of the Week Seafood restaurants should be avoided by persons with fish allergy, even if they order a “non-fish” meal because the oil, grill, and other kitchen areas are likely to be contaminated by small amounts of fish protein.
