Toronto Catholic District School Board

Welcome to Week 1 of the 2018/2019 School Year!  

 

We hope everyone had a great rest over the summer and feel excited to begin another great year! We look forward to seeing everyone and look forward to all of the fantastic events to come.

                            

Welcome to Ward:

 

  • We would like to welcome (and welcome back) Michael D’Addario, Michael Bregar, Elona Harnum, and Maria Tbanjanjian to the Ward community as they will be filling in various teaching positions.
  • We would like to also welcome Caroline Pham, Sandra Monteleone, Evangelista, Joshua Buck, Dominique Cunningham-Reimann to replace our teachers who are on leave! (NB: Congratulations re: new babies this year: names to be shared at staff meeting!)

 

Reminders for the week:
