Parents Reaching Out (PRO) Grant Input

Every year, school councils in Ontario can apply for a PRO grant to fund activities that encourage parent and child engagement in the school setting. We are looking for input on what parents would be interested in participating in with their children at St Nicholas. Please see the link below to complete a brief survey.

Catholic Education Week at St. Nicholas – What’s Your Story?

May 6 – 11 is Catholic Education Week in Ontario’s Catholic schools. This year, the theme is Renewing The Promise. As part of our activities at St. Nicholas we have guest readers visiting our classrooms to meet with students, read a book and talk to the students about how literacy and numeracy affect their daily jobs. There are other events planned for the week. Please join us if you can.
