Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s), 

I would like to take this opportunity to officially welcome everyone back from the summer break.  I hope the summer was an excellent opportunity for families to spend some quality time with each other.  I would like to take this opportunity as well to welcome any new families to the St. Clement community.  Last year was my first year within the community, and I found out quickly that the St. Clement community is active, enthusiastic, caring and inclusive.   Welcome! 
  For our students, the beginning of the school year allows them to reconnect with friends, as well as get started with the challenges of their new grade.  Although there is often some anxieties associated with the beginning of a new school year, I am confident that once the school year officially begins and students get to settle in with their new teacher and new classroom, those anxieties will soon be alleviated. 
  I believe that communities that have a consistent connection between School, Home, and Parish tend to be strong communities as a whole.  This is turn strengthens the physical, academic and spiritual supports we can provide for our students.  St. Clement’s success as a school community is it’s strong bond between these three entities.  Our goal is to continue to build on this connection throughout the school year. 
 As many of you already know, in June we had to say good-bye to some great members of our St. Clement Staff (Ms. Simandl, Ms. MacDonald, Ms. Cairo, Mr. Punter, Madame Dineen, and Mr. Stellato).  We wish them all the best in their new locations for this coming school year.  We would like to welcome the following members to our staff for this coming year:  Mr. Sloan (Gr. 3/4), Ms. D’Hondt-Roy (Special Education), Ms. Cymek (Library Technician), as well as welcome back Ms. Wilson from her Maternity Leave.     
  With the Toronto Catholic District School Board entering the third year of their Three Year Pastoral Plan, with this year being designated as the Year of the School (the previous two years celebrated the Year of the Family and Year of the Parish), we are hoping to celebrate our school’s accomplishments throughout the school year.  This includes honoring all those individuals who make our school environment so strong (students, staff, parents, Parish).  I am looking forward to the exciting opportunities for our school to shine throughout the 2017-18 year. 
 Once again, I am so looking forward to this upcoming school year.  I am excited about reconnecting with everyone within the St. Clement community.  I would like to wish everyone a successful and safe school year!
