Good Evening

Hopefully you all had an enjoyable family weekend. I realize that some of our students came home from school quite stressed about the class changes that took place on Friday. The reassignment of students was beyond our control.

On August 30 90% of MdY classes were straight grades with only two blended grade classes. During the first week of September we welcomed several new families to St Marguerite d'Youville School. This resulted in increased class sizes beyond an acceptable number. Our School Board informed me that we needed to add another class. This initiated a domino effect which necessitated the reorganization that took place Friday afternoon.

Please be assured that a great deal of thought and consideration has gone into the revision of classes and the reassignment of students. As always, our goal is to create balanced classes in terms of learning strengths and needs of students.

I have had several inquiries regarding students switching back to their original class.  Please note that the classes are set and there will be no further changes. We will do everything we can to encourage your child(ren) through this transition.

We appreciate your continued support as partners in your child's education and look forward to a great school year.

Mr. C. Morrison, Principal
