Summer Message

The past year at St. Nicholas Catholic Elementary School has been tremendous. We embarked on the first year of our new theme, #SpiritRipples and it has been truly amazing to see how staff and students have taken these two words and brought to them to life. As I look back over the year, it is evident in many ways that our school community embraced these simple words realizing that the power to change our world comes from each one of us. I have watched our students do simple little things: picking up a piece of garbage, putting something in the recycle bin versus the garbage, helping a peer or sharing a kind word for their neighbour, paying it forward. All these actions were celebrated by both staff and students; however, it didn’t take long before I began to hear students wishing to take on larger challenges to help more than just their own local community. They embraced our food drives, clothing drives and came together to support victims of the floods across Canada.

St. Nicholas CES continues to be a vibrant example of academic, athletic and spiritual excellence thanks to our staff, students and parent community.

Best wishes to our graduates as they begin their secondary school careers and to everyone for a blessed, safe and relaxing summer.

All the best!
