Student Council President Blog, Dec 3rd
This year is just flying by! We are saying good-bye to “Mo”vember and “hello” to December! Once again, another hugely successful month has passed. We have had many important events with CYO sports, Food drives and more.
First, we would like to congratulate all our CYO sports teams for their amazing efforts throughout their seasons. The Jr and Sr. Girls Basketball teams, the Jr Boys and Girls Football teams, and the Sr Boys and Girls Football teams. We would like to congratulate all these teams who never gave up during their season. An extra congratulation to our Sr Girls Football team who won their Division Championship-great job girls! Great job to all teams for making IHM proud! Also, on the 27th our Jr and Sr Hockey teams participated in the HWCDSB Hockey tournament at the Mohawk Quad-Pad. Although the scoreboard did not show what we wanted it to show, we never gave up and had a lot of fun! Great job to all our sports teams! Looking forward to the upcoming school sports!
On Remembrance Day, we held an assembly in the gym. Thank you to our Drama Club for leading in our assembly with your amazing leadership! On this day, the grade 8 students as well as some other schools joined up at the Stoney Creek Cenotaph to have a Remembrance Day ceremony. During this week, we asked students to dress down in red and white and bring in a small donation to go to United Way. Thank you to all who participated! We had a fire truck with multiple fire fighters come to our school to collect canned goods that we had been collecting. Thank you to our grade 6 students who helped transport some of these canned goods and for making the fire fighters feel welcome to our school!
We would like to congratulate all the male staff members in our school community who participated in “Movember.” Also, we would like to thank everyone in our school community for all donations that were submitted into our school. Male staff members, you all looked great!
Finally, on the 22nd we had our student awards assembly. Congratulations to all students who won on of the following awards: The Math Growth Mindset Award; The Responsible Citizen Award; The Caring IHM Family Member Award; The Collaborative Contributor Award, and The Effective Communicator Award. The next awards assembly will be held in March. Good luck to all students!
Once again, another great month in the books! Looking forward to the Christmas season with everyone!
