 Slices of cheese pizza will be served and cost $2 each.  You are welcome to send a donation so students who would like a slice get one.  School council will also be helping with this.Gluten-free crust and dairy-free cheese are also available for students with special dietary needs.

Tamil Heritage Month 
January is Tamil Heritage Month in Ontario. January is an important month for Tamil Canadians, as it includes the Tamil Harvest Festival, Thai Pongal, and other Tamil artistic and cultural events. This month provides an opportunity for all to celebrate Tamil culture and recognize the many contributions Tamil Canadians have made across the province.

Joke or Riddle of the Day!
A “Joke or Riddle of the Day'' is featured daily on the morning announcements.  There are two ways to share a possible joke/riddle of the day: Students will be able to pass along jokes/riddles at school in class using a Chromebook; or, they can suggest one with help from home by clicking here and completing a quick Google Form.  Based on the overwhelming response levels in the past, not all jokes/riddles are used during the announcements.  We do our best to find ones that match the time of the year and also try to make selections from a variety of classes.

Homework Club at the St-Laurent Ottawa Public Library

St-Laurent’s homework club runs every Wednesday from 5 to 6:30pm.  Volunteers from United for Literacy are available to help students aged 6 to 12 with a variety of subjects in both French and English.  Please click here to view the poster.
