Students in schools across the St. Clair Catholic district held special events and activities on Tuesday, September 13 to support Positivity Day.  In Chatham-Kent, schools partnered with the municipality and held special assemblies to welcome Captain Positivity and Opti-Woman, the Chatham-Kent mascots for the day.

"This was a tremendous event in our school community," says Cindy Boyd, Principal of St. Joseph Catholic School, Tilbury.  "Our student leaders just ran with it.  We created a video and every student in the school signed a special pledge that is displayed in our main hallway.  We also had an assembly in the afternoon to welcome Chatham-Kent's mascot, Opti-Woman.  It was a great day!"

Special activities in schools across Chatham-Kent and Sarnia-Lambton focused on promoting the idea that negative thoughts do more harm than good.  Events included writing positive messages on sticky notes and placing them on student lockers and throughout the hallways, picking names out of a hat and coming up with positive comments about the person selected, and doing random acts of kindness or good works, such as picking up litter in the neighbourhood.

At the Catholic Education Centre, staff kept positive by breaking into a Flash Mob just before the lunch break.

"It was a fun way to just make everybody feel good," says Superintendent of Education Laura Callaghan, who organized the impromptu dance.

For the eighth year, Grade 9 students at Ursuline College were welcomed to the school today  by senior student leaders, through the highly successful Lancer Link Program.

Lancer Link has been an extremely positive program, through which our senior students connect with, mentor and engage the incoming Grade 9s in ways that help them to be successful in their new school,” says Ray Power, Principal of Ursuline College.  “We are proud of the amazing support of our student volunteers and the Lancer Link staff representatives, who have helped make this important initiative the great success that it is.”

This week, Lancer Link senior student volunteers, who had previously applied to and were selected for the program, underwent a rigorous two day training program, led by staff.  On the third day, they welcomed Grade 9 students at the UCC Orientation Day, which is a fun and purpose-filled day of interactive activities.  At the conclusion of today's Orientation Day, Grade 9 students left with information and strategies that will help them to successfully transition to high school.  They also left having already met dozens of Lancer Link leaders, who are looking forward to welcoming them on the first day of school.

Lancer Link also pairs student leaders with Grade 9 students throughout the school year, for academic help and social follow-ups, to help engage new students in school events.

“Over these past eight years, we have seen Lancer Link help to foster a school environment where students are connected to each other, involved and engaged,” says Mr. Power.  “It has made a positive difference by helping to create a culture that cares.”

The St. Clair Catholic Summer Learning Camp, now in its third year, is a hit with students and continues to grow in both Sarnia and Chatham.  The three week-long program, which began with just three classrooms in Chatham, has now expanded to eight classrooms between Chatham and Sarnia.

"Summer Learning Camp is an opportunity for students to reduce summer learning loss," says Brenda Corchis, Coordinator of Elementary Curriculum and Early Years Lead for St. Clair Catholic.  "The evidence also suggests that it helps to build confidence and learning skills in our students."

The program consists of 45 hours of literacy and math over three weeks, which is done during the morning hours.  In the afternoon, educational excursions or special activities are planned.  In Chatham-Kent, students will visit the Gable Rees Pool in Blenheim, Parks Blueberries, the Chatham Gymnastics Centre, the Chatham-Kent Children's Safety Village and the C.M. Wilson Conservation Area.  In Sarnia, educational excursions are planned to the Moore Museum, Petrolia Pool, East Street Fire Station, Stones N Bones Museum and Canatara Park.

"The educational excursions are used to help provoke the students' thinking and further their interest in learning," says Mrs. Corchis.  "We also keep the children physically active, through dance and other fun activities."

Healthy Snacks are provided to the students through funding from the Sarnia-Lambton and Chatham-Kent Student Nutrition Programs.

Camp runs from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Monday to Friday from July 11 through July 29 at St. Matthew Catholic School in Sarnia and Georges P. Vanier Catholic School in Chatham.  The program is funded through a grant from the Ontario Council of Directors of Education.
