June Year End Newsletter

July 05, 2021

Well we made it- the last of day of the wild and wonderful 2020-2021 school year.  Please take note of the following year-end information as we begin our summer break:June Month End Parent Newsletter.webp


All student work in SeeSaw will be archived tomorrow, June 29th, at noon.  If your child is returning to a school within the Regina Catholic School Division next year you will still have access to their work from this year; if your child is leaving the division, you will need to download their portfolio from SeeSaw if you wish to keep this digital record of learning.  Your child’s classroom teacher can offer assistance if needed.

School Supply Lists

Supply lists for the fall are available on our website and can be accessed HERE.  We are also asking for each family to contribute one box of latex-free bandaids (Band Aid Brand) for us to have on hand for next school year.

COVID-19 and September’s Return-to-School

At this time, we have not been communicated any new parameters for the return to school in September.  Following the province’s re-open plan, we anticipate that things will look more “normal” in the fall.  Any changes to our school operations that impact students will be communicated to families prior to their return to school; up-to-date information can also be found on the school division website:  

Drop-off Your Backpack August 31st

As previously announced, our hopeful planning for the fall includes welcoming back our community with a come-and-go Drop-off Your Backpack evening August 31st from 6:00pm to 7:00pm.  Students and their families are invited to come to the school to verify their classroom placement, meet their teacher, and leave their school supplies at their desk.  

Staggered Start for Students

Also, please be reminded that there will be a staggered start for all students in the fall.  
Kindergarten students have already received their staggered start information
Students in grades 1 to 8 whose last names begin with A to L will begin school on Thursday, September 2nd and will not return for Friday September 3rd.  
Our M to Z students’ first day will be Friday, September 3rd and they will not attend, Thursday, September 2nd.  
All grade 1 to 8 students will be at school together on Tuesday, September 7th.
