REPORT CARD LETTER

This is a correction to the memo sent home with report cards.

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Enclosed is your child’s report card, which is an important reflection of the work done throughout the school year, and the mark, learning skills and teacher comments traditionally give us a fulsome picture about a student’s learning.

In early January, the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association (OECTA) directed its members to withdraw certain administrative services due to the failure to reach a new collective agreement with the government of Ontario. OECTA’s direction to their members includes the following:

  • OECTA members shall not participate in the preparation and inputting of report card comments.
  • Members shall input marks only on the report cards;
  • Kindergarten teachers shall only input one sentence per frame;
  • OECTA members in secondary schools shall not prepare progress report cards.

You will notice that the report card your child has brought home […]

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming February 14th

This week, we journey back to New York in the early 1900s, where the competition between geniuses Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla has attracted the attention of a rapacious alien queen…as well as the Doctor & Team TARDIS.  Join us this week as the Doctor jumps to the defence of history — and some of history’s greatest figures — in NIKOLA TESLA’S NIGHT OF TERROR.
