Toronto Catholic District School Board

Welcome to Week 23 (Feb 18-22)


We hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend and enjoyed spending time with your families and loved ones!


Reminders for the week:


  • As per Andrea’s email on Feb 12, “the Black History month presentation AND the first course selection collection have been moved to Tuesday February 19th with a Special Schedule (2 hour TA block of time) to facilitate BOTH events.  While one group is in presentation, the other TAs will do course selection/collection and vice versa.  Currently it is a Day 8.  With the proposed move, Feb 19 would become a DAY C-6. Monday February 25th is currently a DAY C-6 and WAS scheduled for the Black History month presentation.  We would switch the day and it would now become DAY 8.  No extended TA.
  • This week we are engaged in the process of Course Selection on Tuesday (Feb 19) and Friday (Feb 22). 
  • SAC has some new events planned for SAC Spirit Week so please have a listen for the special themes and activities that are going on this week. Note that three civvies days have been approved this year and your support would be greatly appreciated by SAC!
