All Catholic Schools Closed Monday, February 24th

In the absence of a provincially-negotiated collective agreement, the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA) has selected the Waterloo Catholic District School Board as one of the Ontario school boards included in a one day rotating strike on Monday, February 24, 2020.

As a result of this strike, all Waterloo Catholic District School Board elementary and secondary schools will be closed on February 24.

This one day strike is in addition to the province-wide one day OECTA strike already announced for Friday, February 21, 2020.

In addition to the closure of all WCDSB elementary and secondary schools on February 24, please note the following:

Some programs offered at the WCDSB’s St. Louis Adult Learning & Continuing Education Centres will be cancelled on February 24 — they are:
•Hairstyling will be closed
•Culinary Arts will be closed
•Secondary School Credit Day School will be closed
•Correspondence services will be closed
•Guidance services will be closed.

All other St. Louis Adult Learning & Continuing Education Centres programs will be running as per their normal schedules.

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 February 24.

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

First Term Report Cards

St. Teresa School Families,

First Term Report Cards are  going home today – February 13th.

A letter insert with the report card indicates the reasons for only the marks recorded in Grades 1 to 8, and only one sentence recorded in each of the four frames in JK/SK.

Please return the parent portion of the Report Card in the envelope provided. We really need the envelopes returned to use with the June reports.

If you have questions regarding the marks in Grades 1 to 8 or the comments provided in JK/SK, please contact the classroom teacher.

Thank you.

Valentine’s Day- Nutrition for Learning!

Hey St. Teresa Families!

Friday is Valentine’s Day! We are going to have a little fun in the gym for part of the day.

Classes will be invited to do some “Valentine Dancing” with our awesome speaker system(thank-you School Council!!) along with some lights as well.

We all got a little “taste” of what’s to come with a huge dance party outside at lunch time recess today! We’ve got moves, even in our snowsuits! Thanks to our awesome Grade 8 DJ’s!

We are also accepting any small donations for our Nutrition for Learning Program on Friday as part of our Valentines Dance. If you already donated to the “toonie drive”, thank-you. If you’d like to send a small donation to help the program, all donations go right back to healthy snacks for our students. Thanks!

Reminder: WCDSB Schools are Closed Tomorrow(Tues. Feb. 4th)

Updated Information:

The Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA) has announced that all of its members will
be engaging in a one-day strike on Tuesday, February 4. 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 February 4.
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.

ADDITIONALLY – As a result of pending strike action announced  by the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation
(OSSTF), all of the WCDSB’s St. Louis Adult Learning & Continuing Education Centres campuses will also be closed on
February 4 — except for all PSW (Personal Support Worker) programs that will be running as per the normal
schedules and locations.

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