Hope everyone had a great long weekend!

Just a couple of reminders as we begin our week:

  1. EQAO starts Tuesday. If there is going to be morning announcements they will take place right at 9:20AM. Please do not make any announcements from your classrooms as we do not want to interrupt our students taking the assessments. Please remind students to be extra quiet in the halls while they are making transitions.
  2. Last chance for the St. George Staff Shirts. Order goes in Wednesday morning. There is also the students order at the office that you can order from as well.

Weekly Post: April 24th – 28th

Good morning everyone! Well it was morning when I started this post. Not anymore. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready for the warm weather headed this way in the next few days.

I just wanted to pass along some kind words that have been passed on to us from the Salvati Family. They are incredibly touched by the outpouring of kindness and the thoughts and prayers that have been extended to them from our community during this difficult time. All of them feel so fortunate to be a part of the catholic school system and our school. The children have been making some very profound comments about the situation that have in fact surprised the family with what they have said. They credit all of their teachers and staff at the school for how well they are handling the passing of their mother. I promised I would pass along their comments.

If there are people that want to go to the funeral on Wednesday at 11AM let me know and we will see what we can do to cover people off.

Here is how the week is looking:


Tuesday: 1:45 PM Easter Mass at the church


Thursday: Potluck Lunch

Friday: Volunteer Breakfast at 8:30AM
