Welcome Back Ravens!
We are so excited to see everyone again! It's been a very busy summer planning for staff and students to return to school. With safety as our top priority, things will look a little different around our building. Thanks to our wonderful community for your support during these unprecedented times.
Our young and vibrant school community continues to grow and this year we added two portables to our building. We are blessed with a dedicated and talented group of teachers. Many thanks to the staff for their hard work this summer decorating classrooms, planning interesting lessons and most importantly, adapting our new COVID-19 guidelines. Staff have done an amazing job adapting to the changes and overcoming the challenges with creativity, humour and grace.
The theme for Regina Catholic Schools again this school year is "Know, Love, Serve." During the year, we'll work as a school community to put this theme and our faith into action. Our focus this year is on love.
We will once again continue with the School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) program. This program engages staff with all students in reinforcing positive behaviours. Our hope is that we can promote school expectations in a positive and proactive way and encourage student engagement through building staff/student relationships. A copy of our Behaviour Matrix is posted on our website along with an important letter about the program under the SWPBS tab.
We'll be using our school website as our main tool for communicating important information so check the site regularly: www.rcsd.ca/kateri. You can find links to our Twitter and Instagram accounts at the bottom of the page. Occasionally, we may use Messenger to email or call to relay information quickly.
Please consider attending our CSCC meetings. The CSCC is the official parent/community voice within our school and consists of appointed members and elected members who have voting rights. Our meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at the school starting at 6:45. Meetings are open and I encourage you to attend to be part of our discussions. More information is posted on our website. If you have questions, contact the CSCC Chair at email@example.com.
I wish all St. Kateri Tekakwitha staff, students and families a wonderful school year!
Educating in Christ,
