Dear St. Ignatius School Families,
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! It is with great excitement that we begin a year that is filled with hope for the future!
St. Ignatius School and Parish want to recognize and thank our donors for their generous contributions and our volunteers for their involvement with our Golf Tournament on August 31, 2023 at Kingswood Golf Course. All of you were integral to the successful relaunch of this annual fundraising event.
Donations were directed to the St. Ignatius Recreation and Playground Improvement Fund, which will serve the to enrich the lives of the children and families at St. Ignatius School.We are pleased to announce that the tournament raised a total of $27,682.10 which has already begun to impact our community. The success of the event has been put toward the re-surfacing of our outdoor basketball court, and has allowed our Environmental Committee to begin planning for an outdoor classroom, and a Butterfly, Spirituality & Indigenous Garden.
St. Ignatius School is a Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 8 Catholic School that prides itself on academic excellence and community engagement. We aspire to continually enrich the lives of our students from diverse economic and ethnic backgrounds. As a not-for-profit organization, the school greatly values our generous community donors to ensure that we can continue to flourish. The ability to create outdoor education and recreation opportunities and to foster environmental stewardship for our students is but one of our Strategic Pillars.
We are excited to announce that a date has been set for our 2024 Golf Tournament. Please save the date: Thursday, August 29th, 2024. We hope that we can continue to count on your support.
It is truly a privilege to work with and learn beside our gifted students. It is an honour to serve this amazing community. The staff at St. Ignatius School is very excited to introduce leadership opportunities for our middle years students. The St. Ignatius School Board is eager to move forward with our next five year strategic plan. Once this plan is in place, we will embark on the next chapter of the St. Ignatius School story which has a long history in the community. Founded 110 years ago, St. Ignatius School is proud to continue its mission to provide quality spiritual and academic growth based on the principle that every child is created in the image of God.
Trusting in His care,
Mrs. Jeannine Pistawka
