On behalf of the STC School Council, I would like to welcome you to what we hope will be a school year that sees a safe return to many of the programs and events that our school community has enjoyed over the years.  I have been at this school for many years and my “caboose” is currently in Grade 7. Your dedicated and hard-working council is comprised of parents who have children in FDK to Grade 8. We are motivated to continue to offer our students many events and activities to support Mrs. Lanois and our awesome teachers. We have an amazing group of parents on council this year, full of energy and inspiration to share with the school community.

It is through the School Council that we were able to run successful programs/events such as Liturgical Celebrations, Christmas Star of Hope, MT Cares, Guest Speakers, Dave & Buster’s Family Night, Poinsettia Plant Sale, Fresh From The Farm, Pancake Breakfast, Landscaping Clean-Ups and Donations, School Decorating, Graduation, the Year-End HOOPLA and many, many more.

The STC School Council is always looking for new and creative ways to bring the community together and inject a little fun into the school year. Your suggestions are always welcome so drop us a line at  We love to hear from our parents and welcome you to attend a meeting or volunteer for an event.

The benefits of volunteering are enormous to you, your family, and our school community. We are still creating our volunteer list so if you can assist once restrictions are lifted, please complete the online volunteer form if not currently on our roster. Children watch everything you do. By giving back to the community, you show them firsthand how volunteering makes a difference and how good it feels to help others and enact change.

If you can help us, help the school, we would love to have you join us. Together, let’s make it a memorable year!

God Bless & Thank You,

Lisa Ryce
