Dear Parents/ Guardians/Readers,

WELCOME to our St. Vincent de Paul School website! We care, grow, and learn together. Continue to visit our website for up-to-date information on what is happening in our school community.

Our exciting adventure has begun! We are now located at 25 Chalmers St. S for two years while they demolish and reconstruct a brand new building for us, to open September 2018!

There are many challenges that come with relocating to an ‘old building’ but we assure you that despite this, we are the SAME school…..same people, same staff, same families! This should be a great comfort to you to know we will provide quality education to your children! I can’t emphasize enough the need for your support in this journey; we are in this together!

Our staff members at St. Vincent de Paul continue to be extremely caring and committed individuals. Together we work as a team to provide an abundance of opportunities for our students, to grow in dedication to their learning, and become respectful citizens in the greater community.

We at Vincent are proud of our active sports teams and intramurals, our enriching spiritual events, our clubs and committees, and our academic press. Yes we have the challenge of a smaller yard and gym, but our dedication to providing the best for our kids is our priority!

We are now located within a stone’s throw to our parish, St. Ambrose! We are thankful for this partnership and we continue to extend this joint venture to your home. We value our parents and parishioners to network daily with us in support of “WWJT” (What Would Jesus Tweet). “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

Our school has a full roster this year of exciting events, guests, and presentations that will help us strive for a positive and caring environment. These events will include the St. Francis community so that our students get to know each other even better in preparation for when we join together Sept 2018!

We also are very lucky to have a Vice Principal joining our team…welcome Mrs. Angela Carroll-Boeyenga! She is going to be a great addition to our team!

Please, I encourage you to take advantage of joining us at some of our events. They are often designed for parents and guardians to get a closer look at what and ‘how’ your children are learning.
We hope by now that you have signed up for Newswire, which will deliver our monthly newsletter, invitations, letters, and other important information right to your inbox! It’s easy; find the link on our home page.

We also have a Twitter Account, and encourage you to visit our website to view our tweets!

St. Vincent de Paul School Council has, and will continue to be, a tremendous support to our school community, with amazing, dedicated individuals that team up well together. They provide many events, equipment and learning materials for our students. Watch for invitations to participate in some of the events!

I look forward to another great year ahead. I am so grateful to be a part of this ‘awesome’ community. I thank everyone for their ongoing support and dedication.
