We had another pile of checks returned this week.  If you would like to find out if yours was returned, please email


  • Tuesday our gr. 8 class hosted a Halloween Cookie Sale.  All proceeds are going towards their Gr. 8 Farewell in June.  The sale raised $330.00!  Thank you to everyone for making this such a successful sale.  They couldn’t have done it without you. 
  • Black & Orange Day was also held on Tuesday.  The students had a fun day with Halloween activities and the energy in the building was exciting! 
  • On Wednesday, we had some former SCCS students helping in the classrooms. 
  • Wednesday was also All Saints Day, and our students were learning about different saints this week.
  • All Souls Day was on Thursday. 
  • Thursday was also early dismissal.  Teachers had a Blue Cross presentation followed by our monthly Staff Meeting.
  • Today was our annual St. Charles Day!  The grs. 5 & 6 teachers hosted our annual assembly, and our students learned about our patron saint.  Thank you to the students who read at our assembly this morning. You did a really good job! The day ended with our annual tradition…ice cream from Sargent Sundae! 😊
  • We had some more former students back at SCCS today.  SPHS students were here to give back to our community.


  • On Monday, our grs. 7 & 8 students will have a presentation called “Bisons Against Bullying.”  One of our former students, now at the U of M, (fun fact: I taught him in gr. 1 😊), is coming back to speak to our middle years’ students along with one of his teammates.  It should be an excellent presentation.
