Remote Learning Continues
The Ministry has announced that schools will not re-open for in-person learning for the rest of the current school year. We will continue with remote learning until June 29th which is our last school day before summer break. We have some exciting things planned to bring us together in community including an end-of-year virtual school liturgy with Father Con on June 22nd (more information to come), and our virtual graduation celebration with our Grade 8s on June 24th. We truly appreciate your support in working together to ensure a successful end of year for our students!
Indigenous History Month
June is National Indigenous History Month in Canada. This month, and every day, the Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB) celebrates and honours the history, heritage and diversity of Indigenous peoples in our country, and in our HCDSB community.
National Indigenous History Month is a time for learning about, appreciating and acknowledging the contributions First Nations, Inuit and Métis people have made in shaping Canada. It is also an opportunity to recognize the strength of present-day Indigenous communities.
Virtual Family Paint Nights ~ Learn About Indigenous Art
HCDSB families, students and staff are invited to participate in virtual family paint nights to get creative at home and learn about Indigenous art. The final one is Wednesday, June 9th. For more information, visit here
