Thursday, December 12th, 2019

Tomorrow is our White Elephant Sale hosted by our very own Gr. 6 students.

If your child is interested in purchasing a gift for someone in their family, please send in some money with them to make the purchase. Items will cost $1 or $2.

If you are still thinking of sending any items in that we can add to the sale, please do so. We have not received as many items as in years past, so it would be great to add to our selection.

Thanks,

Grade 6 Team

Bully Prevention and Awareness Week

posted Nov 22, 2019, 12:25 PM by Tim Slack   [ updated Nov 22, 2019, 12:30 PM ]


We had a great week here at St. Jerome Catholic School looking at kindness and what to do when you are confronted with situations where you may witness someone being bullied, or if you are being bullied.

The most important thing that you can do is tell someone. Your parents, teachers, and friends are all here to help you if you are having problems with someone. 

This week, Gr. 6 student Bridget Hampton shared with us a beautiful poem that she wrote to help bring awareness to bullying awareness and prevention. Please take a look at her poem below.

Dear bully, why do you do this to me,

Is your life at home harder,

Do you scream and plead,

Does your life compare, To my despair

Do they hurt you as you hurt me?


 Is it for fun and games, 

Is it worth my pain.

Do you laugh and howl, 

When i cry and scowl. 

When they stare and look

Do you think i feel good?

I dont, but you already turned your back


The way you look at me,

A glare or stare 

Am i an object to you?

Is it all a game for you?

You wonder why I'm blue

Ever think it might be because of you?


Is it to be cool or liked

Because right now you might be hyped. 

But when your all grown up

And think your good enough

Youll think back to me, 

And want to set me free

But im gone.

On Wednesday, October 30th St. Jerome School will be participating in a Jersey Day. As many of you would have heard, a student from St. FX passed away last weekend. Our community here at St. Jerome would like to help out and support his family.
