Thank you to everyone who was able to participate in the Social Justice Team’s Bake Sale in support of Water Ambassadors Canada. As a result of your generosity we were able to raise over $500.

Our next project, during Lent, is North of 60, in conjunction with St. Michael Parish. Stay tuned for information coming home about items needed in Baker Lake.

OECTA Job Action

The Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA) has announced that all its members will be engaging in a one-day strike on Thursday, March 5, 2020. This decision affects all Catholic district school boards in Ontario.

As a result of this strike, all Waterloo Catholic District School Board elementary and secondary schools will be closed on March 5.

All WCDSB extended day programs will be open for the day as usual (7 a.m. to 6 p.m.) for students currently registered in the program.

Community use of schools activities will continue as scheduled.

OECTA’s previously announced job actions will remain in effect before and after March 5.

As before, we remain hopeful the two sides will return to the bargaining table quickly and will come to a fair and respectful agreement that serves the best interests of our students.
