STAY INFORMED! The May Newsletter is now posted!
As the school year is nearing its end, it is with mixed emotions
that I announce that my career in education
for the past 40 years will also be drawing to an end.
Soon I will be retiring from a career that I have always
enjoyed and felt privileged to have been a part of as a Catholic Administrator.
While I eagerly anticipate new adventures and
learning opportunities that I will be experiencing in the next phase in my life’s journey,
it is with great sadness that I will be leaving such an amazing staff, wonderful students,
a solid parish/school partnership and parents who have always demonstrated such great support and dedication.
Over the past seven years we have all strived to
attain the fullest potential of each and every child.
The St. Rita School community has always been vibrant, active and strong in success and accomplishments,
making our school so very special.
I have greatly enjoyed working with you as your Principal
and have appreciated the support you have extended to me
throughout these past several years.
I pray that God continues to bless this school and the hearts of all those
who enter through its doors.
In conclusion, I would like to thank all the wonderful and
exceptional teachers and staff at St. Rita,
the supportive and caring parent community, the eager and life-giving students,
our dedicated and generous volunteers, the active
Parent Council who are always eager to enhance
the lives and programs of our school, and the leadership
of our spiritual growth, Father John.
You all have truly made a difference. Because of you,
we are able to rejoice and be proud of the many gifts
and talents that make our school community so special.
You are a reflection of the dedication and commitment to our Catholic Faith
as we continue to learn, grow, celebrate and pray together.

At Dufferin‐Peel Catholic District School Board, we believe that we are called to create a Catholic learning and
working environment that is safe, caring, inclusive, and welcoming.
Together with Central West CommunityCare Access Centre (CW CCAC), the Dufferin‐Peel community is continuing with a model of support for students that began last year in some schools.
The integrated occupational therapist (OT) model of support was developed and studied by CanChild, a research centre at McMaster University. This model provides educational opportunities for our teachers to learn more about how children develop motor skills and how they can promote motor skill development through classroom activities. In this model, the OT works in the school with select students. She assists teachers, where appropriate, in learning more about motor development in all children and how to help children who may be having difficulty with some motor skills.
