All Saints Blog Week of May 22nd, 2018

Ottawa Catholic School Board Strategic Commitments 
 Our School Board has outlined its strategic commitments for the next few years. The board has focused on a three pronged approach that focuses on Community, Wellness and Innovation.

The Board Vision - All students are inspired and guided to realize their spiritual, social and academic potential, and to take their place in the world as thoughtful, well-rounded citizens.

The Board Mission - Provide all of our students with a well-rounded education for the mind, body and spirit through an emphasis on academic excellence, social responsibility and Catholic values.

New 3 Year Board Spiritual Theme
In addition to our new Strategic Commitments, the Ottawa Catholic Board has established a new spiritual theme that will support our faith development and learning for the next three years. Micah 6:8 is one of the most popular lines in scripture and this First Testament verse of the prophet Micah has been described as the whole of the Christian mandate in one sentence. This theme gives us an opportunity to explore our growth in faith in three distinct ways:

YEAR ONE (2018-19): SEEK JUSTICE. How do we live our faith in action? Do we appreciate Catholic Social Teachings and the Social Doctrine of our faith?

YEAR TWO (2019-20): LOVE KINDNESS AND MERCY. How do we live our faith in our relationship with others?

YEAR THREE (2020-21): WALK HUMBLY WITH GOD. We are called to live an authentic faith, close to our God in lifelong discovery leading to transformation.

Arts Buy-IN
On Wednesday, May 30th we will be having our annual Arts Buy In. It will be during high school period 2, and grade 7/8 period 5/6. It will feature the fabulous dance department including dancers from grade 7 to 12, as well as our Show Choir who recently returned with many accolades from Show Choir Canada including first in their category. Classes will be asked to raise a small amount of money in support of CHEO - helping make a difference in the life of children, youth and families.

Graduation Retreat
Our grade 12 students enjoyed their graduation retreat this past Wednesday. It was an opportunity to revisit some of their memories, as well as review their hard work that has gotten them to this point. Special thanks to our Student Services department and our Chaplaincy Leader Lyndsay who organized the activities for the day.

School Council / Safe and Accepting School Team Meetings

On Monday, May 28th, we will be having our School Council and Safe and Accepting School Team meetings beginning at 6:15pm in our Learning Commons. Our School Council will review general events and happenings at the school with a report from our student council. Our Safe and Accepting School Team will review our school code of conduct ahead of next year. All of our parent community are invited to attend.

All Saints Blog Week of May 7th, 2018

Catholic Education Week and Child and Youth Mental Health Week May 6-12, 2018
Catholic Education Week provides us with an opportunity to highlight the many ways that we support our students in their cognitive, spiritual and emotional growth. May 6th to the 12th is also Child and Youth Mental Health Week across the province. The goal of this week is to raise awareness about the importance of child and youth mental health and to highlight that positive mental health is essential to a child’s healthy development. Having this double focus provides us with an opportunity to highlight to our school communities the important link between the work that we do to foster spiritual and cognitive development in our students as well as caring for their mental well-being.
Our Board Spiritual theme, Sent To Be The Good News, provides us with an opportunity to demonstrate through our actions, initiatives and messaging that we are committed to the well-being of all in our community. Pope Francis models for us what putting our faith into practice looks like: reaching out to the oppressed, the disenfranchised, the lonely and the impoverished. Being the Good News means being a voice for those suffering in silence with the stigma of mental illness and it means creating positive, inclusive, accepting and forgiving learning environments within our schools.


Grade 8 I-Cubed Activity - Investigate! Invent! Innovate! 


For the past few years, our grade 8 students have been involved with the ICubed innovation approach concentrating on project based learning for students. The activity focuses on providing students with opportunities to Investigate, Invent and Innovate across a number of subject areas. Our school presentation day provided a chance to see some great creations in person. Students were anxious to share the incredible work they had done with their inventions. Thank you to all the staff involved with this organization.

Easter Masses
Our entire All Saints School Community celebrated our Easter Masses this past week. Our theme centred on the fact that the feast of Easter is a month old, however, the liturgical season of Easter prevails until Pentecost. Our Masses provide us the opportunity to involve students in the organizing, mass readings, and musical performances. Thank you to Fr.’s Virgil and Daryold for again being generous with their time as they celebrated with us. Special thanks to our Chaplaincy Leader, Lindsay Moore-Chung for her continued organizing and support.

Cleaning the Capital
Once again, our All Saints Community participated in Ottawa’s “Cleaning the Capital” effort last week. Classes of staff and students got involved to participate in cleaning and organizing activities around our school community. Thank you to Marianne Wilkinson (Councillor for Kanata North) for joining us and getting our activity started!

Screenagers Movie - Presented by All Saints School Council 
Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well.
In SCREENAGERS, Delaney takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance. Our All Saints School Council has sponsored a screening of “Screenagers” to take place on May 10th at 7:00pm at the school. There is no cost to this event, however, we ask those interested to register at the follow site ahead of the showing:

All Saints Blog Week of April 9th, 2018


Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test
Grade 10 students will be writing the online OSSLT literacy test this Tuesday, April 10th. All Saints staff have been working on preparation activities for several weeks. Parents are encouraged to review the information on the Ministry website with their students ahead of the test.
Board Tipi at All Saints
From April 3rd to the 13th, All Saints has been privileged to be able to host our Board’s Tipi in our atrium area. The tipi symbolizes and celebrates all First Nations of Canada. It is set up in the spirit of friendship and ongoing reconciliation. It represents the ongoing process of healing and the restoration of respectful and honourable relationships between the Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples of this land.

During the period that the tipi is at our school, individual students, staff and classes have been invited to enter it at any time the door is open. It will also be open during high school lunch and will be supervised by Sonja Koostachin, a First Nations student. Inside the tipi is an exhibition of art and text created by Mr. Mastersmith’s grade nine Art students that explains the significance of the tipi and provides insight into the history and culture of the tribes of the plains. Ms. Beaupre and Ms. Gloade's classes have collaborated to create a website that also provides information regarding the significance of this symbol. (https://sites.google.com/ocsb.ca/ocsbtipi/ocsb-tipi ). There will be an exhibition of traditional and contemporary First Nations dance next Thursday, April 12th, in the afternoon to close the tipi exhibition.

Some considerations regarding this cultural symbol :

  • Not all First Nations lived in teepees, only the tribes of the plains.
  • The traditional Algonquin people of this region lived in wigwams that were stick and birch bark covered dwellings.
  • Teepees were portable homes that could be easily moved to follow the migration of the buffalo across the prairies.
  • Traditional teepees were covered with buffalo hides. The poles used to support the structure were precious due to the lack of trees on the plains.
  • The floor of the teepee would be also covered with skins and there would be a fire in the center for warmth and cooking. The smoke would vent from a hole at the top of the teepee.
  • The door typically faced east to honour the rising sun and block harsh winds from the north.
  • On our medicine wheel carpet inside the tipi, are marked the four sacred directions ( Yellow - East, Black - West, Red- South and White- North). Each colour also represents a season and stage of life. On top of the coloured sections are the four sacred Medicines.

Richcraft Kanata Race Day 2018


Registration is now open for the 9th Annual Richcraft Kanata Race Day 2018. This year Race Day will be held on Sunday June 10, 2018. This race features a 10K, 5K, 1K and 200m Tot Trot. Both the 10 and 5K are timed races and the cost for students is $20. All proceeds support the enhancement of the Richcraft Recreation Complex-Kanata and its programming. While the RRCK is fully built and operating, we are still in need of fund raising dollars to meet our financial commitments to this facility. Also, programming in the wooded March Highlands surrounding the facility is offered through a unique Junior Ranger program initiated by Councillor Marianne Wilkinson.

All Saints Blog Week of April 3rd, 2018

Happy Easter!
I would like to wish our entire All Saints community a very happy Easter season as you celebrate over the next several weeks. Our celebration of Easter arrives after a long process of contemplation through Lent. I would like to share two short reflections on that transition from our Lenten observance to our celebration of Easter:
We need to remember Easter in our Good Fridays: Easter reminds us that every Good Friday in our lives will have an Easter Sunday and that Jesus will let us share the power of His Resurrection. Each time we display our love of others, we share in the Resurrection. Each time we face a betrayal of trust, we share in the Resurrection of Jesus. Each time we fail in our attempts to ward off temptations – but keep on trying to overcome them – we share in the Resurrection. Each time we continue to hope – even when our hope seems unanswered – we share in the power of Jesus’ Resurrection. In short, the message of Easter is that nothing can destroy us – not pain, sin, rejection or death – because Christ has conquered all these, and we too can conquer them if we put our Faith in Him. Fr. Antony Kadavil
Remember that the passion of Christ ends always in the joy of the resurrection, so when you feel in your own heart the suffering of Christ, remember the resurrection has to come. Never let anything so fill you with sorrow as to make you forget the joy of Christ risen. - St. Mother Teresa

Technology Purchase option through Staples
As we continue the implementation of Deep Learning across the Board, and increasingly seek out opportunities to leverage digital to support learning, access to enough devices in each classroom is sometimes an issue. Our Board has been investing in technology for many years and will continue to do so, but the demand is rapidly increasing as students are starting to do more and more of their schoolwork online using the collaborative tools available.

BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is a strategy that has been successfully implemented in many of our schools to help support student access to technology. Many families are seeking advice as they consider purchasing a device for their child to use both at home and at school over the next few years. As a result, we have been working with Staples Canada to provide OCSB families with access to an online portal where they can find information and pricing on a few models of Chromebooks that have been specifically recommended by our Learning Technologies Department. These recommended devices are the same durable machines we are using in classrooms, with full keyboards, cameras and touchscreens that also flip over to act as a tablet and were not previously available from Staples.
Please see the parent letter outlining the program here.
Please contact the school if you have any questions.

Palm Sunday and Holy Week
Palm Sunday is the final Sunday of Lent, the beginning of Holy Week, and commemorates the triumphant arrival of Christ in Jerusalem, days before he was crucified.
Palm Sunday is known as such because the faithful will often receive palm fronds which they use to participate in the reenactment of Christ's arrival in Jerusalem. In the Gospels, Jesus entered Jerusalem riding a young donkey, and to the lavish praise of the townspeople who threw clothes, or possibly palms or small branches, in front of him as a sign of homage. This was a customary practice for people of great respect.  Palm branches are widely recognized symbol of peace and victory, hence their preferred use on Palm Sunday.  The use of a donkey instead of a horse is highly symbolic, it represents the humble arrival of someone in peace, as opposed to arriving on a steed in war. As we begin our journey through Holy Week, I wish you the opportunity for reflection and a Happy Easter next weekend.

40 Hours of Community Service
Since 1999, the Ministry of Education has required all students to complete a minimum of 40 hours of community involvement activities as part of the requirements for an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) (As stated in Ontario Secondary Schools, Grades 9 to 12: Program and Diploma Requirements, 1999). The purpose of the community involvement requirement is to encourage students to develop awareness and understanding of civic responsibility and of the role they can play and the contributions they can make in supporting and strengthening their communities. The Ottawa Catholic School Board has always encouraged this community service to take place in the Parish, School, or wider community. There is a list on the back of the Community Service form that all students complete that highlights many of the eligible activities that students may complete to fulfill this graduation requirement. When the expectation around community service was introduced by the Ministry of Education, they developed a list of activities that may not be chosen as community involvement activities and that are therefore ineligible activities. Included as part of that list of those expectations outlined by the Ministry is an activity “that would normally be performed for wages by a person in the workplace”. As your son/daughter works toward this graduation activity, we would encourage them to review the list of accepted activities to ensure they are meeting the proper requirements. You will find a link (below) to the All Saints community service hours form, with a list of appropriate activities on page 2. Hard copies of this form are available in our student services department.

7&8 Rethink Hate Group - Fundraising Bake Sale 
On March 29th, during the ⅞ lunch, the Rethink Hate club will be hosting a bake sale with all the proceeds going towards camp Ten Oaks. Camp Ten Oaks is a volunteer driven and charitable summer camp based here in Ottawa for LGBTQ+ youth and their families. We will be selling home-baked goods such as cookies and cupcakes at a cost of around $1-$2 each.

The Rethink Hate club focuses on matters such as bullying and homophobia that take place within our All Saints and Ottawa community. Our goal is to raise awareness about said issues, locally and globally. We are student-led and have about 20 members in total. We hope that you can make it down to the bake sale to support a great cause and enjoy some delicious treats. (Chloe Fodell 8-02)


7&8 Basketball Buy-In for Charity 

This Thursday marks our annual 7&8 Basketball Buy-In for Charity. This is an event that has been running for many years, and was initiated by Mr. Podgorski to support Myeloma Cancer Research at the Ottawa General Hospital. We encourage our students to contribute to the charity which allows them entrance to the basketball game where All Saints will play St. Joseph School. We appreciate our student and staff support to date and would encourage families to make use of the online donation opportunity through school cash online.
