Distribution of Report Cards

This year, in light of the school closures due to COVID-19, student report cards will be delivered electronically. The report cards will be delivered directly to parents and guardians by email on Wednesday, June 24, 2020

Parents and guardians will need their child’s Ontario Education Number (OEN) in order to access the report card. Your child’s OEN number can be found on a previous report card.   The Ministry has waived the expectation for both a teacher and parental signature for this reporting period.  The School Principal’s electronic signature will appear on all student report cards. 

As with all reporting periods, parents and guardians may contact their child’s teacher to arrange a time to discuss the report card. 

You are also welcome to contact our school administration with any questions or should you require further clarification. 

Curbside Pick-Up of Student Belongings

A gentle reminder if you haven’t already done so, to please sign-up for an appointment to pick up your children’s belongings for June 24th and 25th. The email with the sign-up link was sent on Tuesday June 16th. The deadline to sign up for a spot is 11:59 pm tonight. Kindly ensure that you note the pick-up zone so you enter the right area, as that is where your child’s belongings will be waiting. Only one appointment is required per family. We appreciate your assistance with ensuring this is a safe and efficient procedure for all.

In addition, if your son/daughter has any borrowed materials to return (ie. sports jerseys, technology, library books, textbooks, instruments, etc. ) please bring them to the school and staff will be on site to receive them. Kindly label the items with your child’s name and the teacher’s name to assist with inventory. If you are returning technology, don’t forget the chargers!

Mental Health & Well-Being

Validation is a powerful, effective strategy in fostering safe & supportive relationships.  When children and youth feel heard and understood, it allows them to express their emotions, feel a secure sense of self, gain confidence and feel more connected to their parents/guardians.  You convey that you love and accept them no matter what they’re feeling or thinking.

Food4Kids Halton

Food4Kids Halton is a not-for-profit organization that provides healthy food packages for at-risk children who have limited access to food. 

From June 22 to July 9th, Food4Kids Halton will be available to collect empty bottles from families in our community. If you have empty bottles (wine, beer, coolers, liquor bottles or cans) Food4Kids Halton will take them!  

For more information and to find out ways to donate, please visit: https://www.food4kidshalton.ca/ 

Class Placements for September 2020

Through the Halton Catholic District School Board website, parents will have access to their child’s placement by using the student OEN number. All elementary student class placements will become live at 9:00 am on Friday, September 4, 2020.  However, please note that we are currently following the direction of Public Health and this process may change as we progress through the summer.

Please continue to check our school website and the board website throughout the summer for information about September start-up.

A Final Note

As we begin the final week of school, we want to express our sincere appreciation for all of you during what has been a unique school year. Thank you for your diligence through Distance Learning as we all learned together how to navigate new platforms. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we worked virtually to ensure that our students were still engaged and challenged by curriculum, while concurrently ensuring our school community still felt close and connected. We are so proud of the efforts of our staff and students, and are grateful for your support and teamwork.

We wish you all a very restful, healthy, and blessed summer holiday.

God bless,

Mr. Guerin, Mrs. Le Conte & Mrs. Babic
