Some of our newest Wildcats were at Notre Dame last week. New JK students for September 2015 were invited to spend two mornings with us. They had the opportunity to meet new friends, work on literacy activities & iPads, play in the gym and the courtyard as well as participate in interactive stories and sing songs. Parents had the opportunity to speak to a variety of staff members to learn about our FDK Program. We look forward to seeing all of our newest JKs in September.

Excited Grade 3 students at WJ Langlois opened the doors to their Little Free Library. With help from WindsorEssex Community Foundation, the Little Free Library encourages children to become better readers and allows members of the community to drop off books for others to read, or to pick up books to enjoy themselves. The Friends of Fontainebleau were also in attendance to celebrate the grand opening!

Student safety patrols throughout the WECDSB were honoured at a special ceremony last week with their Safety Patrol Medallion. The history of those medallions dates back to the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games, when the Safety Patrol Committee was looking for a way to those committed to the safety of others. The committee began issuing a medallion to one safety patrol chosen to be “The Patrol of the Year,” a tradition which has carried on to present day. We’re sure this year’s recipients will keep and proudly display their medallions as symbols of extraordinary achievement.

St. John the Baptist elementary students organized a Digital Citizenship & online safety session for parents & staff. The students created excellent presentations using Google to explain the importance of social & digital media, how to be safe not only on Facebook & Twitter, but also how you should treat others the way you would want to be treated.

Assumption High School grad Ryan Perrotte was named head coach of the men’s volleyball team at Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) (IPFW). Ryan spent the last 12 years as assistant coach and helped IPFW win a National Title in 2007, multiple NCAA Final Four appearances, and two Midwest Intercollegiate Volleyball Championships. That is an amazing accomplishment!

Assumption is very proud of you. Good luck coach!
