Lost and Found Items Notice and a BIG THANK YOU

Good weekend everyone!!!

We had a terrific Mission Day- thanks to all of you for supporting the event; bringing in donations; or participating with your children.  Thanks to all the staff for creating and supervising activities for our students to participate in.  The big highlights were the cake raffle, the White Elephant Sale and the Freezie classroom.  Special thanks to the behind the scenes work of Mrs. Ruetz and Mrs. Johnston to make sure we were ready to facilitate this awesome event.  As a school community, we raised over $2400 for Chalice.  Way to go Tbirds!!!

As the school year comes to a close, thanks to our wonderful families for their support all year and blessings for a wonderful summer.

All this week, the Lost and Found Table will be set up. Please feel free to stop in and pick up any items belonging to your child(ren).  NEWSWIRE LOST AND FOUND ITEMS

Opioid Letter

Good afternoon,

We were asked, by the WCDSB, to send home this letter in our report cards next week.

I also thought it prudent to share on Newswire as well.

The report cards come home on June 26th and this letter will be included in youngest and only report cards.

Thanks for your understanding.

Sad News Shared in Our Community

Good afternoon,

This week we found out that one of our beloved and valued volunteers, Mr. Mike Sitko passed away.

He had volunteered multiple times per week in Mrs. Johnston’s class over the last few years.

We gathered this week as a staff to pray and we also gathered the students he worked with today to pray.

They created a card for him and the family that is shared on our Faith Centre here at school.

Please see the letter sent home to the students we prayed with today.letter for Mike Sitko


Thanks for keeping Mike and his family in your prayers. Many of our staff had worked with Mike in a variety of ways and appreciate the prayers.


Take care and God bless.

News from St. Daniel for September 2018

Good evening.

As the end of the school year approaches, we have some news to share with you for September 2018.

We are continue to grow and are adding a new portable. We have added a Grade 1/2 class and kept all 4 Kindergarten classes for the fall.  Staffing has yet to be decided for these classes but we will inform you of all staffing changes at the Sneak Peek on August 29th.

Mrs. Cathy Adams has announced her retirement and although we are happy for her, we will miss her greatly. Mrs. Adams is a wonderful, caring and compassionate teacher and I know there are many families who will miss Mrs. Adams. We wish her all the best. Ms. Warner, Ms. Perez and Mrs. Kocan will all be leaving at the end of June. We wish them well in the careers at other schools. Thanks for your time at St. Daniel.

For the fall, we will be closing the front parking lot for drive through/kiss and ride drop off. This new development is to keep our children  safe. It is often very chaotic at arrival and dismissal and we want to ensure all our students arrive and depart from school. as safely as possible. The lot will be open until the students in our Extended Day, go outside to play at 8:50 am.  Parents can park at the back church parking lot and walk their children safely to the school yard.  This change will allow our bus students and walkers, to enter the school grounds safely and avoid other cars driving and parking in the front, at a very busy time.  I know you will do your best to work with us to make our arrival and dismissal times as safe as possible.

Other changes happening soon: the community garden build happening tomorrow. Ms. Warner secured a grant for 4 new raised gardens to be built and filled with fun fruit and vegetable plants, as well as flowers.  We are excited about this.  We also have our big library renovation happening with new shelving being installed as well as new fun and colourful furniture. This also was based on money secured outside the school budget and we are thrilled to modernize our learning commons.

We have had a wonderful year and have added many awesome resources and physical changes due to the fundraising efforts of School Council and securing 4 different grants throughout the school year.

Key Dates for June:

June 8- Community Garden Build
