Director’s Message

I am filled with optimism for the future of our school community. As we celebrate the achievements of the past year, let us also look forward to new opportunities and challenges that will undoubtedly shape the continued growth and success of our students.  Our new Multi-Year Strategic Plan will help guide our work as we follow the 5 priorities identified by our Trustees: Faith Formation, Well-Being and Engagement Promotion, Inclusive and Equitable Spaces, Achievement of Learning Outcomes and Future Success, and Public Confidence. 
Thank you to each member of our school community for your dedication, hard work, and unwavering support. Together, we have created a year filled with accomplishments, and I am confident that the coming years will bring even greater achievements as we continue to uphold the values that define our Catholic school community.
