The theme of the 2017 Mental Health Awareness Week is “Connecting with nature”. Science is providing more and more evidence that when we connect with nature by engaging in activities in nature (hiking, gardening, etc.), there is an improvement in our overall mental well-being and there are decreases in the rates of stress, anxiety and depression.
This year, EMSB schools will be encouraged to share how they connect with nature by creating slideshows, videos or written pieces. Participating schools will be featured in the EMSB Focus Newsletter, and eligible to win one of three surprise nature-inspired baskets.
If you would like your child to attend St. Monica and take advantage of all the opportunities we have to offer, we would be very happy to count your child among our students.

As part of the partnership for the stay-in-school program, the annual EMSB Night will take place on Tuesday, May 30th, 2017 when the Impact host The Vancouver Whitecaps.
Once again there will be a special ceremony at half time, with bursaries being awarded to two top students. These bursaries are named in honour of the late Tony Licursi, the longtime Impact statistician who passed away ten years ago. Deadline to purchase is May 1, 2017.
Construction will begin in October on a new building for the Mackay Centre and Philip E. Layton schools. The new school will be built on Terrebonne Street, in back of École Marc Favreau. The project will take two years to complete and will be ready to house students in 2018.
St. Monica School has been working with the EMSB, and will inform parents throughout each phase of the construction to ensure the process runs as smoothly as possible.
