Principal's Welcome

September 8, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

On behalf of the staff and students of Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year.  Our Lady of Sorrows School is a place rich in culture, tradition, dedicated to faith and family. Our environment is both nurturing and supportive, and continues to grow through the contributions of all of our members. With the help of staff, parents and community members, Our Lady of Sorrows students grow as learners in God’s love.

This year, more than ever, we have had to rely on our school community and our Faith to help guide us along during these unprecedented times and unknown circumstances. It is during these times that we are able to see how the relationships between home, school, Church and community are needed to help support our most treasured gifts, our students.

During this pandemic and with our educational journey, our goals remain rooted in all that we do. We aspire to create a learning environment that embraces the development of the whole child, including academic, social, emotional, spiritual, artistic and physical. We cherish the opportunity to help cultivate each student’s God-given gifts and talents in all areas.

Our Lady of Sorrows is a Catholic school that begins with Junior Kindergarten and continues through eighth grade. Our students embark on an academic journey with the support of a family of teachers, educators and students during their formative years.

At Our Lady of Sorrows School, we value your trust and the privilege of teaching your children. 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.

We are proud to celebrate that at the heart of all we do is our Catholic Faith. We cherish opportunities to share our faith, always celebrating through prayer, demonstrating our Catholic Virtues and lessons taught through our Grandfather teachings.  We strive to support each student in their personal growth by offering opportunities to become leaders/mentors in their Faith development. 

Although we are faced with many new circumstances this year, Our Lady of Sorrows School has a dynamic staff that looks forward to embarking in an exciting academic journey with all of our students. 

As parents, you play an important role in your child’s education. We look forward to working closely with you and value your partnership.  Thank you for considering Our Lady of Sorrows School for your family where we truly strive to be the school, where Education is “Rooted in Faith and Alive in Spirit”.

Yours in Christ,

Stacey Malette
