Good afternoon families,
PRIDE AWARNESS Day – June 14th
At St. Nicholas we will be celebrating PRIDE Awareness Day on Monday June 14th, as we believe that we are all created in the image and likeness of God, and we honour the dignity in each person by treating one another with care, compassion and respect. We are committed to nurturing a safe, welcoming, and inclusive learning environment for all of our students – regardless of their race, gender identity, gender expression, disability, sex, sexual orientation, creed, or age. To learn more about our commitment to Equity and Inclusive Education, please take a few minutes to read Responding with Faith, Hope & Love.
Picking Up Student Belongings/Returning School Materials-Resources
