For every $5 a student raises, they will receive a ballot for a chance to win a raffle prize!  Some of these amazing prizes include Rangers tickets, a wireless speaker or headphones, various gift cards, board games and even the chance to be Principal for the day (just to name a few)!  The top fundraising class in each division will also win a class PIZZA or ICE CREAM party!


On behalf of School Council, Staff and Students – we thank you for your support!  See you on the dance floor February 14th Cardinals!

WCDSB Schools Closed on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 – TOMORROW

IMPORTANT! Updated Closure Information Concerning Strike Action on Tuesday, February 4, 2020

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 today 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.
