Welcome to Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Elementary School

Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,   

I hope that you have had a wonderful and restful summer holiday.  It is with heartfelt anticipation and excitement that we look forward to the 2017-2018 school year. We would like to extend a warm welcome to all of those who are new to our community.  We are excited to start this year and we thank you for the opportunity to serve and teach the students and families of this community. 

Our school prides itself on being a community that invites all students to excel and to meet their academic, physical and spiritual potential.  At Our Lady of Sorrows school, we value your trust and the privilege of teaching your children. We cherish the opportunity to help cultivate each student’s God-given gifts and talents in all areas; including academic, social-emotional, spiritual, artistic and physical.  We proudly work closely with students, parents, our Catholic School Advisory Council, staff, Our Lady of Sorrows Parish, Holy Spirit Parish and the greater community to help our students meet their fullest potential. We are proud to be called a tri-cultural school offering programs in English, French as a Second Language and Native as a Second Language. Through our Catholic faith, we strive to further develop literacy and numeracy skills to help each student as they pursue their own pathway. Please remember that communication between home and school is very important to us.  Do not hesitate to call or make an appointment with your child's teacher to discuss any concerns or questions. 

As the leader of this beautiful school, I feel blessed to serve the Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic community as the role of principal helping each child grow and succeed. I look forward to working with the staff, parents, families, community members and parish priest to make the 2017-2018 year both faith-filled and truly enjoyable. We are looking forward to an excellent year, one filled with many great memories and moments of joy.  Should you have any questions and/or concerns throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I wish each and every one of you an outstanding year here at Our Lady of Sorrows School. 

Yours in Christ,

Stacey Malette

Support Catholic Education(Posted:10/30/2017)

DID YOU KNOW?  Your school support defaults to English Public each time you move residences. You must re-declare yourself as English Separate.    

By ensuring that you are accurately recorded as a Separate School Supporter, you will be able to cast a vote for Catholic trustees in the October 22, 2018 Municipal Election and you are helping to deliver a powerful message to the Ontario government about the level of support for publicly funded Catholic education in our province.
