Congratulations Mrs. Coelho!
St. Dominic Savio CES wishes a Happy Retirement to Mrs. Coelho! You are going to be missed by all here. We are so happy for you and wish you all the best in your well deserved retirement. You have been a huge presence here and always went over and above for your students. Thank You for all that you have done for the St. Dominic Savio school community.

June Umbrella Theme

We continue to explore the Umbrella themes each month and students are starting to build their own personal umbrellas – being able to use various strategies to help them deal with struggles they may face in their lives.  Throughout the month of June, we will be exploring the theme of Hope/Mastery. Take a minute to read the attached article that can be found at the link below. It has some great activities for your children around Hope/Mastery.

End of Year Mass

Staff and students celebrated our End of Year Mass with Father on Friday. Students were called to be joyful disciples and to continue their faith journey this summer.

Farewell!

We want to wish Mr. Sepahi, Ms. Detzler, Ms. Bernad, Mrs. Monteiro and Mrs. Coelho a fond farewell.  They have served our St. Dominic community with fortitude and grace. We have been so blessed by their spirit and tenacity this year.  We wish you a great journey ahead and hope that you will be back to visit us…lots and lots! Please know that you have made a difference in the lives of the students here at St. Dominic’s.

A big Thank You goes out to the coaches, Ms. Buck, Mlle Tank and Mr. Jolly, for their hard work getting our athletes prepared!

Family Fun Night

Even though the night was cool and wet, this did not dampen the spirits of the staff and families who came out for our annual Family Fun Night on Thursday. There was lots of fun, food and festivities for all. Everyone enjoyed themselves despite the rain. A huge Thank You goes out to the St. Dominic School Council for their hard work in putting together this fantastic night!
