Weekly Update – September 25-29

Our School EQAO Results Now Available

Earlier this week the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) released the 2016-2017 Provincial Assessment Reports for each school and school board in Ontario.

The Primary (Grade 3) and Junior (Grade 6) EQAO assessments in reading, writing and mathematics took place last school year during May and June. Our school results are now available online. To learn more about EQAO assessments and view our overall school results, visit:

NOTE: Individual results for students who completed the Grade 3 and Grade 6 EQAO assessments last school year will be sent home to parents during the week of September 25, 2017.


Although we strongly recommend that appointments be booked outside of the regular school hours, we recognize that there may be some instances when appointments are scheduled throughout the school day. If this is the case, please write in your child’s agenda and the teacher will ensure that the student is at the office when you arrive.

St. James Children’s Choir

On the first Sunday of the month the students of St. James Catholic Elementary School lead the Parish at the 11:00 Mass. These monthly family Masses foster our Home-School-Parish partnership. Letters will be sent home during the year inviting a particular class to accept ministry roles during one Eucharistic celebration. Please help us support our children in their faith development.

One ministry role the children can be involved in all year is the Parish Children’s Choir. The St. James Parish Children’s Choir practices in the Church, every Thursday after school during the school year. We share our faith and love of music.

Speak to Mrs. Weinstein after the 11:00 Mass on Sunday or come check us out at a practice. Our next practice is September 28th, right after school. Registration forms are available at practice. Looking forward to singing with you.
