Toonies For Terry

posted Sep 23, 2020, 12:13 PM by Margie Butler

On Oct 2 we will celebrate our annual Terry Fox run at school.  Each class will take its turn to partake in the event. As years past we are looking to collect a Toonie for Terry to help support the Terry Fox Foundation. Students will be learning interesting and fun facts about Terry and though we may not be all out on the field at the same time we are still as a community rallying together to continue Terry’s Dream.

First time walking to school next year? 
No problem! 
Participate in OSTAs Walk to School Event and you’ll learn pedestrian safety skills through resources and interactive activities that help build confidence through practice.  #GetYourWalkOn

Please know that later this week, those students attending OLV in person will receive information about their classroom teacher for the upcoming school year. 
As always don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!

Sept 2020 Update

Hello OLV!

Please take a moment to review our 2020 Reference Guide to help better prepare you and your family for September.

21st Deadline Reminder

posted Aug 20, 2020, 9:39 AM by Margie Butler   [ updated Aug 20, 2020, 9:46 AM ]

Hello OLV Families

There has been a lot of information being shared over the last several weeks.

I wanted to reach out to ensure everyone has the latest and most updated information that may impact your decisions for September.

What’s Changed:

Staggered Back to School Dates

  • Junior Kindergarten students-half of the class will first come to school on Thursday, September 3rd and the other half will come to school on Friday, September 4- we will contact you about your child’s individual start date for JK

  • SK- Gr 6 students will first come to school on Tuesday, September 8th

Online Learning

If you choose online learning for your child in K to grade 6, it will be a different experience than it was from March- June of last school year.

Depending on numbers, your child’s online class will be composed of a combination of same grade students from OLV and potentially neighbouring OCSB schools. Your child will remain registered at OLV.  The online classroom teacher will be available in K for synchronous learning for 180 mins per day, while Gr 1-6 teachers will be available for 225 mins per day. 

If for whatever reason you have changed your decision for September please complete this form by Aug 21st. If you have no changes then there is no action required on your part:)

As well, here is a copy of a suggested back to school list to help you start preparing for September.  Please don't worry if you are unable to access some of these items as we are here to help. We will make sure that all students at OLV have the tools and supplies they need to have a great year at school!

I will share with you our new specific school routines and set up in the coming week. 

In the meantime we are here to answer questions and provide supports so please feel free to email or call.

Take Care,

Mrs Butler :)
