We want our students to be engaged in our classrooms as well as in our co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities. At All Saints Connect + Engage = Student Success. Please refer to the information contained in this newsletter on Connect and Engage. Student voice will continue to be integral to all we do at All Saints moving forward.

Moving forward, we will use our Philosophical Framework which was developed several years ago and updated last spring with parents, students, school administrators, district personnel and community representation, as the touchstone document that will guide our school development. We firmly believe in the importance of a collaborative process with the students at the centre of all our discussions. We look forward to building relationships with all stakeholders; including students, parents, teachers, school council, the parish and educational partners. Together, we will develop a mission and vision where all students have opportunities to succeed. Opportunities Awaiting…Legends in the Making. Our students will have a champion supporting, nurturing, guiding and encouraging them through their faith and educational journeys.

We will use weekly updates, quarterly newsletters, Brightspace, School Messenger, Instagramand Twitter as opportunities to inform you about what’s happening at All Saints. We will also provide you with informative articles, helpful hints and community and parish news, post-secondary information, scholarship opportunities, and career planning.
