Greetings from the Regina Catholic School Division Board of Trustees!

We are Regina Catholic Schools. Know, Love, Serve.

With prayers for continued good health, we welcome you back to school for the first time in many months. A summer of planning and preparing has come to an end and we begin a new school year while we live through a global pandemic. For our families joining us for the first time, welcome. To those joining us in a new way with our brand-new Learning Online Elementary School, welcome. To those who are anxious, and those who are excited, we welcome you.

There are so many new things about the 2020-2021 school year. From the extended break from regular learning environments to a desire to meet all the new guidelines from the Government of Saskatchewan, we all start with a fresh set of policies and procedures. We have an innovative way of educating with Learning Online which is growing to accommodate need. We have a beautiful new Michif Language Kindergarten classroom which will help us grow culture and learning. We have a school newly names
St, Maria Faustina. We also have a new theme.

Over the next three years, we will explore our relationship with God through a three-year faith initiative, Know, Love, Serve. This first year we will focus on Knowing God. How can we Know someone we cannot see? By looking in a new way and connecting with our Creator through learning more about faith. The same way we cannot see a virus causing the world without using sophisticated scientific exploration, we will spend the year getting to Know the Father, Son and Holy Spirit by deepening our understanding and learning.

Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love. ~1 John 4:8

Please remember our plans remain fluid. We will be flexible as a school division to accommodate any changes necessary to ensure health and safety within our communities. Your school will have all the latest information specific to your children, including staggered start information.

God Bless,

Bob Kowalchuk, Board Chair
