IMPORTANT: Safe Arrival and Dismissal for Students April 29th

Dear parents,

As you know the Ottawa area has experienced some major flooding over the past number of days. There has been no flooding or damage here at St. George School. However, the areas around the school are experiencing high water levels and there will be an impact on traffic around the school.

OSTA is rerouting the buses to the front of the school as Pontiac Avenue is not an option for student drop off and pick up at this time.

Keyworth Avenue in front of the school will be closed tomorrow for pick up and drop off of students by parents from 8:45 - 9:30 AM and 3:15 - 4:15 PM. If you do drop off your children, we are asking you to park a couple of blocks from the school and walk your student(s) to school. This includes drop off and pick up in both directions.

Your cooperation is appreciated to ensure the safety of all of our students. When we find out more information about pick up and drop off we will let you know. You can also get any updates on our Twitter account at @StGeorgeOCSB

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who has been dealing with the flooding in our community.

Thank you,

St. George School

Lenten Fundraiser


Hey St. George community!!!

We want to let you that we are having our final Lenten fundraiser on Wednesday of this week for Ok Clean Water and Christie Lake Kids Camp, so we can help kids and feel good about it. This final fundraiser can help both kids in our community and across the globe.

What can you do? What you can do is encourage and remind your kids to bring in some money on Wednesday, April 17 to buy some baked goods. Prices will range between 50 cents and $2 and we will also have tickets to raffle some cakes. Let’s make the most of it!

Thank you!

The grade 6 students and the Justice League

Update from the Den: April 2nd, 2019

posted Apr 2, 2019, 7:25 AM by Tim Slack



Friday is PJ Day here at St. George. Wear your PJ’s to school and bring in $2 for our Lenten Project. All proceeds go to the OK Clean Water Project and to Christie Lake Kids. The Justice League has set a goal for our fundraiser. If we reach $2000 Mr. Slack will do the Macarena in front of the school. If we raise $2500 he will also dye his hair blue.


Do you have a couple of hours to spare to help organize and prep a reading program here at St. George for our Primary students? Teachers have prepared materials and we just need a little bit of help photocopying and organizing to get this program up and running. If you are interested please email


Next week the School Council will be hosting the 14th Annual Book Sale here at St. George. This is a great opportunity to have your child buy a book that another student in our community has already enjoyed. It promotes reading as well as supporting environmental initiatives by reusing the books we have in our homes.

If you are looking to do a little spring cleaning and want to donate some of your books that you have read, please send them into the school. We will make sure that we find a new home for them and a new reader.

If you are looking to volunteer in the school we are looking for help at the following times:

There are 5 possible times for volunteers, but the really critical ones are the sort on Monday night and the clean-up on Tuesday:

  • Monday 3:45 to 7pm
  • Tuesday 9:30 to 12
  • Tuesday 1 to 3:30
  • Tuesday 3:30 to 5:30
  • Tuesday 5:30 to 7 (to close sale and do clean-up)
  • Thanks from the St. George School Council!
