Student Council President Blog, Feb. 1st
Hello I.H.M! Now that we have completed yet another month of school ,let's take a quick look at everything we did in the last month.
We congratulate our Sr. and Jr. Boys Basketball teams, along with our Sr. and Jr. Girls Volleyball teams who are all off to terrific starts of their seasons. During our January 8th assembly, the student council introduced some new student awards that will be given out at the end of the first and second term. These awards will be given to five students per class. They include: the Math Growth Mindset Award; Responsible Citizen Award; A Caring I.H.M Family Member Award; Collaborative Contributor Awarda, and the Effective Communicator. At the end of the month or in the first week of February, the Student Council will be going around to each class with posters stating the criteria of all five awards. On Jan.19, we had our eco day where every student brought in two dollars and was given a brand new I.H.M water bottle courtesy of the ECO Team. On Jan.24th, we had our Snuggle up and Read day. We send out a big thanks to all the volunteers who gave up their time to read to the classes. As the snow finally fell this month, we all showed that we can behave well with snow. Keep up the good work!
As we begin the month of February, let's keep an eye out for what's ahead. In yet another display of their leadership, the Grade 7 students have begun a new drive for the Demazenod Door. This time, they are asking for gently used, but clean bedsheets, comforters, sleeping bags and pillowcases to support the homeless population that visits the Demazenod Door. On Valentine's Day, the Student Council will be hosting our Valentine’s Day Raffle. We are asking for baked goods that are peanut and gluten free if possible, gift cards and gift baskets, from any families that are interested in donating. During, the March Break, Mr. Colella along with other principals and teachers will be going to the Dominican Republic to help build a home. Mr. Colella is asking us to begin to collect various items for the children during his D.R.E.A.M.S trip. Thanks to Mrs. Claudino’s Gr 5 class who will be spearheading a campaign to collect these goods. As a school ,we will be competing against St. Gabriel to see who can raise the most items. Let’s make February the best month so far. Let’s go Hurricanes!
