School Weekly Update June 8, 2020

“Prejudice is a burden that confused the past, threatens the future, and renders the present inaccessible.”

 -Maya Angelou

We have never been made more aware of the fact that we are all One Body in Christ, all of us created in the Image of God, all dependent on one another. Racism and prejudice needs to be stamped out. During this global pandemic, we have come together as a community to support and care for one another as never before. Let it not stop there!

Silence is Not an Option

Stamp out Racism!

Please read the message from our Director, Pat Daly, about our collective commitment to creating safe, welcoming, and inclusive communities for all of our students, and acting to end racism in our schools and institutions: https://elem.hcdsb.org/standrew/2020/06/silence-is-not-an-option/
