In response to the CONVID-19 virus, Dr. David Williams, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health advised all 72 Ontario School Boards to close their schools from March 14 – April 5, 2020 to ensure the safety and well-being of students and staff. While our schools are closed, we are committed to keep you informed.

The Ministry of Education has launched a new online platform to
help students continue learning while schools are closed. While these materials
do not replace what students have been learning at school, during this unusual
time, these at-home activities offer quick and easy access to resources for students
from Kindergarten to Grade 12.
resources are designed to help young students learn at home with interactive
activities that encourage participation through entertaining and stimulating
digital content. High school content was designed with a focus on STEM courses
and ensure core competencies and skills are reinforced.

A World War two veteran is about to get a lot of St. Charles College fan mail!
In early February, the CBC News had posted an article about a WWII Vet, Fred Arsenault, who was looking forward to celebrating his 100th birthday on March 6th.
Because Mr. Arsenault enjoys receiving mail and the nostalgia it brings from days long ago, his son made an appeal on social media asking friends and family to send birthday cards to his father in hopes of receiving one hundred of them in time for the big event.
Students in 7A, 7C, 8D and the 7/8 class all heard about Mr. Arsenault and decided to make him 100 birthday cards from the students at SCC.
We’re sure he’s going to be super excited to receive all the beautiful cards the students made.
On Wednesday, February 26th, Student Senate members from all four Sudbury Catholic secondary schools helped wait tables at Tony V’s restaurant to raise funds in support of Australian bushfire relief. In addition to cash donations, a percentage of proceeds from meal purchases will be donated to the St. Vincent de Paul Bushfire Appeal to provide food, clothing, and essentials, and recovery support to individuals and families in need. The students raised a total of $1220 ($500 from the restaurant and $720 in cash donations). Thank you to Tony V’s for supporting this fundraiser event!
