MudPuppy Chase

The snow (and ice) are almost gone and it’s time for the RUNNING CLUB to start again! Announcements will be made so your runners can bring their running shoes to school!

On Sunday, May 6th, 2018 the MudPuppy Chase will be taking place at Columbia Playing Fields!  You can join the St Nicholas team as a student of St Nicholas, a parent, sibling, family member or staff member at St Nicholas! The cost to participate in the 3KM & 5KM race is $35.00; however, if you fundraise at least $35, that person runs for FREE using a coupon code specifically for St Nicholas!!! Plus, your race kit bag will be delivered to St Nicholas school by Friday, May 4th.

Email Christa Nesbitt, parent volunteer, for your coupon code and instructions on how to register for free:

For our students, this event is not a competition, but an opportunity to engage in physical activity, become community aware by raising funds for a wonderful cause – All proceeds help support KidsAbility Centre for Child Development and many other local causes supported by the Rotary Club of Kitchener-Grand River.  Your participation helps children and youth with special needs gain access to life-changing therapy, essential equipment, and assistance for their families and so much more. This year, the Rotary Club will also focus on helping schools with individual projects to assist students’ learning.

Run on your own, with your family, with your friends, or with whomever you like, but be part of the St Nicholas fundraising team! If you already registered, simply email Christa and she can have you added to the St Nicholas School team.

Class Placements for September 2018

Many factors are considered in the creation of class lists including academic abilities, social groupings and gender ratio. Our staff take great care to ensure there is a balance of needs in each classroom. It is not possible to honour requests for teachers or peer groups to ensure equity across the school. Please do not submit requests for an individual teacher to administration or the classroom teacher.
