Mandatory Supervision Shifts

Just a reminder:  we are in the third and last term of our school year.  Many of our families have completed their 4 mandatory supervision shifts - thank you, it does make a difference to the safety of our school!  However, there are a number of families who have partially completed or not completed these shifts.  Please go to the OnVolunteer site to sign up for your 4 shifts.  If you have any questions, please contact our PPP coordinator through the OnVolunteer site or by emailing ppp@stmatthewselementary.ca or contact the school office.  Thank you!
