Our Grade 5 Mayor

As part of the Grade 5 Social Studies curriculum, the children learned about local government. In Miss Bratt's grade five class, some of the students volunteered to run for class Mayor.  Five volunteer candidates ran.  Strong competition for the position ensued.   Olivia became the elected Mayor for her class.  Please see a few points she enclosed in her speech as she sought election from her peers.

  • I will lower taxes for everyone, so that they will have a little more money to spend on their families.
  • I plan to hire more police officers to help keep LaSalle safe for everyone.
  • I will add more street lights to help keep LaSalle safe.
  • I plan to find volunteers that will help build homes for those people who do not have a safe home to live in.
  • I will organize more can drives to help feed people who are hungry.
Great learning Grade Fives!   
Congratulations Olivia!  
Our LaSalle Community will be enriched with such well informed citizens.

Caring Cardinals Go Crazy for Cans

Sacred Heart kicked off the school year with their annual can drive and once again displayed their belief of helping their community.  Students raided cupboards and hit the streets of LaSalle asking neighbours to help them fill the shelves of St. Andrew’s Food Bank. Our students brought a enormous total of 2849 cans.  Classes competed against one another for bragging rights, but it was Mrs. Guthrie’s, Grade 6 Cardinals, that really knocked it out of the park. Her students brought in a whopping 949 cans.

A huge thank you goes out to all the student volunteers for their dedication and to the neighbours who supported our very important cause. In addition, the Sacred Heart Cardinals would like to thank the Lasalle Police Department who made two trips to the school and filled many cruisers to transport all the can goods to the LaSalle Food Bank.

A big THANK-YOU also goes out to Mason and Calum for helping us collect and tally all the food.

September 2017 – Welcome back to school!

·      While it may feel like summer is over, that doesn’t mean the sunshine has left. The sunshine brings UV rays which can cause harm to our skin. Using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 on any exposed skin can help keep you safe. It’s also a good idea to wear a hat when out in the sun to keep your face and neck protected. Remember – no matter how hot or cool it is outside, there are still UV rays!
·      Keep stress levels down by staying ahead of schedule. School work, tests, and even friend and family requests can add up quickly and cause stress in children. Help teach kids to plan ahead for their week to avoid feeling stressed at the last minute. Create a weekly “agenda” that shows their school work, sports, and other activities so it’s easy to see how time needs to be managed. Teaching children these skills will help them throughout life.
·      Children learn and perform better at school when they eat a healthy breakfast and lunch. Here are some tips for packing a healthy lunch:
-    Change it up from sandwiches by using a wide mouth thermos to give them leftover of chili, soup, pasta, or stew.
-    Make small wraps with a protein, vegetables, and salad dressing, or make mini-pizzas on an English muffin.
-    Lunchables are not healthy. Make your own version with finger foods like crackers and cheese, small pieces of fruit, and meat cut into small circles and squares.
-    Instead of bread, use small pita pockets, dinner rolls, breadsticks, or round Melba toast.
Vaccines keep our children and community healthy! The Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA) R.S.O. 1990 is a law in Ontario that makes sure all school-aged students are protected from avoidable diseases. The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit is working with you, your school board, and community healthcare providers to make sure that your child’s permanent immunization record is up-to-date. Learn more about how you can update your child’s immunization record at
