Kiss and Drop: Thank you to all parents waiting to pick up their child(ren) after school for always moving forward towards to the top right zone of the Kiss n’ Drop area when space comes available. This helps avoid congestion at the entrance and allow cars coming in from Victoria to enter safely. We had a much better week.

Halloween Dress-Up and Dance: On Monday, October 31st all (Early Years/P/J/I) students will be invited to wear their costumes to school. With respect to costumes please review with students that costumes can not promote violence or have accessories or props that could be used as a weapon. As well masks or suggestive costumes are not permitted. In light of recent media attention we are requesting students refrain from wearing clown costumes. All classes will be invited down to the gym for a 40 minute dance session. Students are invited to donate a loonie or canned good. All proceeds will go to the Food Bank.

Principal’s Message

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”
