Today, we celebrate and honour our ECEs and EAs in a special way. We are very fortunate at Sudbury Catholic to have many wonderful, caring and supportive Early Childhood Educators and Educational Assistants in our schools. The support and care that they provide our students each and every day in helping them to grow in mind, body and spirit is foundational to their success. We thank them for their support, their gentle guidance, for inspiring, for helping to create a growth mind set, for helping our students believe in themselves and for all of their contributions to our schools and to our system. Their expertise and commitment inspires our students to grow and to reach their full potential. You truly are amazing!
On behalf of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board, we thank you for making a difference within the classroom and beyond!
The 2020 NHL draft has been a week of dreams coming true for three former St. Charles College students.
Three SCC students were drafted this week leading with Quinton Byfield who made history for the Sudbury Wolves franchise as the highest draft pick in Wolves history with a 2nd overall selection by the LA Kings. Next came Jack Thompson who was drafted in the 3rd round by the Tampa Bay Lightning.
And the third draft made for a hat trick with Isaak Phillips being drafted in the 5th round to Chicago.
It’s history in the making for the players and the school says Athletic Director and Lead of the Hockey Skills Academy Darren Michelutti. Michelutti says “With Sudbury Wolves students attending St. Charles College, the Hockey Canada Skills Academy has had the opportunity to learn and work with elite athletes like Quinton, Jack and Isaak. The students enrolled in the program get a firsthand experience to see that hard work pays off and dreams really to come true when you commit to your passions.”
Next year, another student/player Chase Stillman will be a 2021 NHL Prospect.
Michelutti has been building the Academy at the school for the past three years. Currently there are ninety-five students enrolled in the program.
On October 5th, we recognize and thank our dedicated and inspiring educators who work tirelessly to support our students in reaching their individual goals. During such unprecedented times our educators have stepped up to ensure that our students continue to receive a quality Catholic education and the supports they need to be successful both in the classroom and in our remote school. Thank you for nurturing their mind, body and spirit through the engaging opportunities that you provide. Last school year when our schools closed due the COVID19, you found ways to connect with them and to continue to support them through various actions such as care pkgs, food programs, social media, the modified graduation celebrations and of course through the various platforms that you were using. We were all so proud of how resilient and creative you were and continue to be. Our students are better because of who their teachers are. Thank you for always going the extra mile for them.
On behalf of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board community, we thank you for putting our students first and helping us to achieve our vision of being leaders in learning and faith. You truly are amazing!
October 2, 2020 is National Custodial Appreciation Day! It is a day to thank and appreciate each and every member of our custodial team including custodians, assistant custodians, cleaners, BSTs and maintenance staff! We are especially grateful for their efforts in helping us to prepare for our school reopening, and for their ongoing diligence in keeping our schools and buildings clean. Your efforts are helping to keep us all safe.
On behalf of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board community, we are extremely thankful for all that you do. Let us take this opportunity to say thank you!
Staff and students throughout the Sudbury Catholic District School Board joined hundreds of others across Canada by participating in Orange Shirt Day on Wednesday, September 30, 2020.
By wearing orange shirts, we recognize the harm the residential school system did to children’s sense of self-esteem and well-being and it serves as a symbol of our commitment to reconciliation. Since it began in 2013, the phrase “Every Child Matters” has been used as part of the movement to recognize the value of every child and for communities to come together.
“The Sudbury Catholic District School Board firmly believes that every child matters and as such we will continue to honour Orange Shirt Day year after year,” said Joanne Bénard, Director of Education. “We are committed to Truth and Reconciliation and we strive to find opportunities for our staff and students to come together in support of intercultural understanding, empathy, and mutual respect.”
