Greetings from the Regina Catholic School Division Board of Trustees!
He is Risen, Alleluia! We hope and pray that each of our families had a restful and rejuvenating Easter break, with time to reconnect as a family and celebrate the rising of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
They found the stone rolled away from the tomb,
but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
We continue to strive for the best way to cope with the provincial government's sweeping budget changes. Our goal is always to create the best educational experience possible for our students, and while fewer dollars will make that more difficult, our aim continues to be in the classroom, with as many supports as we can afford to provide to meet the needs of our students.
The recent announcement of the Theodore decision, removes provincial funding for a non-Catholic students attending Catholic, schools after June 2018, has created a flurry of concern. At this point, we don't fully understand what will happen next. We have very little information to go on as we look toward the future of Catholic education in our province. As soon as we have further news about an Appeal, required documents to prove a student is Catholic, or any firm news that makes the situation clearer, we will share that with you. In the meantime, we ask that you continue to support the rights of your child to receive a Catholic education in RCSD and in our province.
May 1, 2017 is the last day to get a free T-shirt when you register for our 8th Annual Moving in Faith on May 28. You can register now at www.rcsd.ca/movinginfaith. Registrations will still be accepted right up until the event, but after May 1, we cannot promise a t-shirt. Join us for a family fun event, featuring bouncy houses, face painting, balloon animals, soccer with the U of R Cougars, and our 2km and 5km walk or run.
The Ministry of Education approved school year calendar for 2017-2018 is now available online at www.rcsd.ca. Effective May 1, 2017, you will notice our website has a brand new look. We encourage you to explore this new website, and enjoy the added tools and ease of use.
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD,
thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope."
