Principal’s Message

As we prepare for the final days of 2016-2017, we also look back on what has been another fantastic year at SKT.  We would like to thank the staff and  students for all your hard work this year and a special thanks to our parent community for all your support.  For our Grade 6 students and those students leaving SKT we wish you all the best as you embark on a new chapter of your lives.

With a heartfelt farewell it is also time for a few members of our staff to move on to different chapters of their lives.  It is hard to imagine SKT without them however we would like congratulate Cathy Sanford (Office Administrator) and Christine Gelfand (Grade 1 Teacher) on their retirements!  Krista Birch (Grade 3/4), Maureen Harding (ECL), Elizabeth McCarthy (EA), Dawn Gallant (ECE) and Rachel Funderburk (ECE) will also be joining different schools in the fall.  We sincerely thank you for your contributions to St. Kateri Tekawitha.  You will be missed!

EQAO

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​May 29th-June 2nd was EQAO testing week for our Students in Grade 3 and Grade 6.  EQAO assesses how well Ontario’s public education system is developing students’ reading, writing and math skills. EQAO provides reliable and useful information that is used to help improve student achievement and ensure the accountability of school boards.  .


Next School Year

It is that time of year where we begin to plan for next year!  We ask that you please inform the office if your child is not planning to attend St. Kateri Tekakwitha next year.  The school office will be closed from June 31st to August 28th.  Students return to school on September 5th.

Catholic Education Week

Our Catholic Education Week was a great success with wonderful opportunities to celebrate all that we done in our School Community. We would like to express our gratitude to Dessureault Independent for providing bananas and yogurt for our Healthy Snack initiative.
