JUNE 2019 Superior North Catholic District School Board Newsletter

"At the conclusion of every school year, I try to reflect on our successes and our challenges. I think about what we’ve accomplished and what there is to accomplish. I also think of the responsibility we have as educators. We want to be sure our students receive the best education from teachers who care and principals who lead well. Our senior team has a duty to set an example and support the system to make it all happen. We should always seek to do better, to set the highest standards and reach our collective and individual goals. Every school year is another opportunity to do better, to aim higher. At the end of this school year we are grateful for our students and their accomplishments; the parent community for their support and for our Catholic values which paves the way on our journey forward. I would like to wish you all the very best for summer vacation and look forward to having you back refreshed for a new academic year." - Maria Vasanelli, Director of Education

Catholic Education Centre Office Expansion in Terrace Bay, ON

Superior North Catholic School Board is pleased to announce our office expansion which is attached to the St. Martin Catholic School in Terrace Bay, Ontario. Due to the required changes set out by the Accessibility Act, businesses and public sector organizations must be accessible to all and modernization is required for compliance and safety.

Upon completion of the expansion, our office will be fully accessible to all members of the North Shore Communities. We analyzed our requirements for the office and selected the most cost effective and energy efficient solution to meet the needs of our organization.

The project has already started and will be completed by early December of this year. Upon completion, we will be moving out of our facility on Simcoe Plaza.

All Health and Safety concerns have and will continue to be addressed during the construction project, to ensure the safety and well being of the staff and students attending St. Martin Catholic School.

Superior North Catholic School Board is proud to be an integral part of the North Shore and will always strive to better serve our schools.

Wishing our Superior North Catholic School Board students, staff and families a wonderful summer!
