Toronto Catholic District School Board

Principal's Message

 
Pope Frances came to America with a message of faith, mercy, and hope during his visit September 22 to 27, 2015.  In his prayer vigil for the Festival of Families he said:
 
We have to care in a special way for children. Children and young people are the future; they are our strength; they are what keep us moving forward. They are the ones in whom we put our hope.  Taking care of children is the sign of love-I’m not sure if it is the greatest, but for the family I would say that it is the most promising-because it promises the future (Trouve, 46-47).
 
At D’arcy McGee we believe that all children belong.  We strive to create a learning environment that is barrier free for our students.  As a Catholic community we are welcoming and consistently care for one another.  Our school encourages students and staff to share their gifts and talents.  This very nature of sharing builds community, acceptance, and breeds success.    
 
We also believe that our parent community should play an important role in the life of our school.  The emotional, social, and faith development of our students takes the work of many hands.  We believe that students will benefit immensely when the family and school community work together for our children.  When the home environment supports student learning our young people benefit immensely.
 
As your principal, I am committed to working with all stakeholders to provide a safe and nurturing environment for our children.  We want D’arcy McGee to be a place where students are free to express themselves and grow into amazing young people.  Our students deserve the best education possible.  It is our goal to establish an environment where students can use their imagination, feel secure, and show us how incredible they really are.  Your children and our students are our present and future. 
 
Sincerely,
Allan Schultz
