Happy Valentine's Day, St. George's!
We owe the Parent Activity Committee an enormous thank you for making Faculty and Staff Appreciation Week so special, from the extravagant morning displays of special treats to the elaborate themed luncheon enjoyed at the Elementary School today. It goes without saying, but we appreciate you, too!
Last week, our own Michael O'Connor and Cyndy Borden sat on a panel discussion at Dawson College's Social Science Week, where they got into topics including the social and physiological effects of excessive screen time. There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the approach we have adopted as a school and as a community to address digital distraction not just in our classrooms but in our wider lives. Earlier this month, CTV Montreal dropped by the High School to get the scoop for a segment on social media addiction - you can watch it here if you missed it!
Thank you to the St. George’s parents who have helped us get halfway to our goal of raising $80,000 through this year's Annual Giving campaign. Your participation alone is worth more than we can express! Every gift counts - no matter the amount.
