NEW!  Dufferin-Peel secondary school administrator named Principal of the Year

Michelina Battaglini, Vice-Principal at Loyola Catholic Secondary School, has been named recipient of this year’s Principal of the Year Award by the Catholic Principals’ Council of Ontario (CPCO).

The CPCO Principal of the Year Award originated in 2000 and recognizes the exceptional school and community leadership of a principal or vice-principal in Ontario.

We are extremely proud of Michelina and all that she has accomplished as a leader, role model and colleague,” says John B. Kostoff, Director of Education. “Michelina is truly worthy and deserving of this award, as it acknowledges her significant contributions to the Board, the students, and the community she serves.”

In addition to being part of the administration team at Loyola, Michelina has made considerable contributions on numerous board-level committees, including the Catholic Board Learning Team, Leading Student Achievement, Student Voice Committee, Student Trustee Elections, Research Committee, SkoVision Team and Program Committee.

“Her strong devotion to the well-being of others and the commitment to her duties on a daily basis makes Michelina an exceptional Catholic leader and deserving of being recognized as CPCO Principal of the Year,” adds John B. Kostoff.

The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board would like to congratulate Michelina on this outstanding achievement and send their sincere appreciation for her commitment to school and community leadership.

Our Daily Prayer for June

Let us now pray … for the virtue of fairness – the desire to live by the rules of God’s kingdom everyday of our lives. AMEN.
