We have an established Catholic Community of Caring based on the values of faith, caring, respect, responsibility, trust and family. The Catholic Community of Caring focuses on building respectful and compassionate school environments, rooted in Catholic values.
Within our school, we are building more inclusive communities where respectfor one another, our community and our diversity are celebrated. Using these values as building blocks, we create a positive school community by developing relationships through activities such as student leadership, social justice projects and professional development opportunities.
Through the incorporation of its essential elements into the daily life of school, a climate is created where the whole school community embraces these values. Our priority is to ensure that all of our students are provided with a safe and caring school environment where they can excel and be healthy and productive learners.

Bookworms Know How
“Bookworms Know How” is a reading incentive program that rewards students for daily reading. Students who finish a prescribed amount of reading (depending on the grade level) are given a ballot. The ballots are collected in each classroom and at the end of the month a ballot is drawn. The lucky student from each class will receive a gift card to purchase a book from Chapters.
Bookworm winners are announced monthly at our CCC assemblies. Good luck students – keep reading!
