Mission Day and Family Fun Night were both huge successes. We raised an amazing $3560.00 on Mission Day which will be donated to a school in an aboriginal Northern Ontario community (Attiwapiskat), St. Vincent de Paul for food distribution, Dream for Uganda for basic educational needs and the Fort McMurray relief fund. Family Fun Night we raised approximately $900 which will go directly back our students. Thank you for your unwavering support.

Have a wonderful summer!
Welcome to the St. Dominic School community web site! We are a truly vibrant faith community that takes pride in developing passion, patience and perseverance in your child(ren). We believe that every student is a gem that has the capability of illuminating the world in their own special way. As a staff, we will work tirelessly to create opportunities for students to share their gifts, celebrate their uniqueness and be the best they can be. We feel fortunate to be part a school team focused on developing the whole child (mind, body and spirit) through a commitment to high expectations and collaboration.
Our school is blessed with a caring, talented staff committed to creating opportunities for students to share their wonderful gifts. Under the guidance and leadership of our St. Mark parish priest, Father Don Sanvido, the students will have the opportunity to grow and flourish through the sacraments and our daily life. We place great value on our three cornerstones of community-school, home, and church! Together we can prepare our 21st century learners for a productive meaningful life, tolerant of differences, while working together in the image of Jesus Christ. We have the privilege of educating our children in a Catholic school system and it is the responsibility of all of us to be the “voice of Jesus in the ears of our children.”
At St. Dominic we are fortunate to have a school council that has, and continues to be, a tremendous support to our school community. As well, we have dedicated volunteers who give of their time and energy to enrich the learning experience of all our students. Collectively, we have created an environment where it is safe to challenge, learn and grow.
It is our hope that all families will use this web page to stay up-to-date with all the activities that will be taking place at St. Dominic Catholic Elementary School. Our monthly newsletters will be posted on this site at the beginning of each month. Please also sign up to receive copies of the school newsletter through your email. We acknowledge and celebrate the support that you as parents provide for our children and look forward to working alongside you in supportive manner. Please contact us at the school if you have any questions or concerns. We thank you for your continued interest in your child(ren)’s education. Together we will make this year your child’s best year yet!
“We can do all things through Christ who strengthens Us”
