Pride Awareness Day

On Monday June 14th, 2021 we will hold Pride Awareness Day– a day to reaffirm our commitment to honour the dignity and worth of each member of our community by nurturing safe, welcoming and inclusive schools.

As Catholics, we believe that we are all made in the image and likeness of a God who created us and loves us unconditionally – just as we are. We are called to know, love and celebrate one another, just as God knows, loves and celebrates each one of us because we are “wonderfully made.” We honour the inherent dignity in each other by treating one another with sensitivity, compassion and respect.

Throughout the month of June, all HCDSB schools are raising awareness around Pride Month. We begin the third week of June with a system-wide Pride Awareness Day – an opportunity to pause and reflect on what we have learned about Pride and what we can do individually and together to create welcoming and inclusive schools where all students feel a true sense of belonging.

Family Trivia Night

On Wednesday June 16th, 2021 we’ll be coming together virtually, as a school community, to end the 2021 school year with a Family Trivia Night. This will be very similar to our Trivia Night in the winter but with a Disney theme. This event is open to both in-person and virtual learning students. Please use the link that will be sent to you through school messenger to join. You will require two devices, one to log into D2L under your child’s account and another to log into Kahoot to play. We hope that all our St. Timothy families are able to join us and we invite you to join the fun and wear your Disney attire!

Parent Tip Sheet

This pandemic has lasted longer than many of us anticipated. While we have adapted and coped as best as we can, many parents or caregivers may be concerned about the mental health and well-being of their child or teen. For many children it has been a long time since they have seen their friends, participated in social and recreational activities, especially if they have continued to learn remotely. Mental health professionals, have reassured us that children experiencing some sadness, worry, or even anger is natural during these challenging times. But some parents are worried that their child or teen may be suffering more – so how do you know?

Please see here for additional information on how to know if you should be concerned about your child/teen’s mental health and well-being?

Please note this Tip sheet is not a replacement for a consultation with a regulated Mental Health Professional but offers some guidance to parents/caregivers about how you might know when to access professional supports.
