October Newsletter

Congratulations to all newly elected and returning members of your Catholic School Council.  I look forward to working with you as we continue to dialogue individually and through our Community of Schools Network.

As Thanksgiving approaches, we thank God for His many blessings. Each of my area schools is blessed with many benevolent and commendable students and staff – for this, we are truly grateful.  Wishing you and your family an appreciative Thanksgiving.

YCDSB is this year’s proud host of the 78th Annual OAPCE Conference which is taking place at St. Joan of Arc CHS on October 13th and 14th.  This year’s conference will focus on Mental Wellness: Developing you God-Given Potential.  For more information visit: www.oapce.org.

The City of Vaughan’s Santafest is quickly approaching! Mark your calendar for Sunday, November 12th.  All schools participating will receive a $500 bursary and will have the chance of winning the $1,500 music prized from Arcadia Music by way of a draw. (Last year’s winner was Blessed Scalabrini!!!)

As in previous years, I am in the midst of organizing a Catholicity Workshop on Thursday, April 12, 2018 at St. Joseph the Worker CES (475 Brownridge Drive) at 7pm.  This year’s workshop will be hands-on and fully interactive.  Please mark your calendar.  More information on how to register, etc. will follow.

As always, you may reach me at 416-565-7087 or at cathy.ferlisi@ycdsb.ca.
