Holy Door:
Pope Francis declared this year a Jubilee
Year of Mercy. On December 8, 2015 the
Holy Door in the Vatican was opened to
begin the Year of Mercy. As a district each
school will also create a holy door within the
building. At. St. Clement we have our Holy
Door as the entrance between the Learning
Commons and the gym. Thank you to our
grade nine student Rikki Abesamis and his
team for creating such a beautiful doorway
for our school.

Winter clothing: Please label
With the colder weather upon us, we remind parents to please ensure that
your children are dressed appropriately for the weather. Also, have a
conversation with them about dressing properly for recess independently for
the younger students. We would also ask that you please label winter clothing
especially winter boots. There are many boots on our boot shelf and it would make things
much easier if all boots were labeled with the student’s name.
On December 16th our grades 4-6 classes will be going skiing to Snow Valley. They will have

Dear St. Clement Community,
We are asking for your prayers and financial help for the DeClercq Family. Their son Riley, who is a
student in our grade 3 class, has had a brain tumor removed on December 22, 2015 and has now been
diagnosed with Grade IV Medulloblastoma. The best treatment to fight this cancer is located in
Jacksonville, Florida which leaves the family in a difficult position.
Please see attached the whole story and below a link if you wish to donate to this worthy cause:
Thank you for your continued support.
Yours in Christ
Mrs. Neynens
As a school we will be participating in a Walk For Riley next Thursday. Please send in donations to
support Riley and his family. We are only asking for a loonie or a toonie for this fundraiser. Each class in
St. Clement will Walk for Riley throughout the morning of January 14th. Thank you for your support
