Re:

St. Matthew School - Pre-Advanced Placement Program

This year, St. Matthew Catholic High School introduced the Pre-Advanced Placement program in Medical Technologies for grade 9 students. The Pre-AP class focuses on medical technologies and participates in enrichment activities in their Science, Mathematics, English and Technology classes. The program follows the Ontario curriculum with greater depth and breadth in these four courses. The Pre-AP program will prepare students to write Advanced Placement exams in their senior high school years. St. Matthew High School Principal Debbie Clark, teacher Mike Flynn and his students Claire Lockert, Marin Habbick, Sara Mester and Sarah Paquette will accompany me to the Board of Trustees meeting on April 28 2015, and will perform a science demonstration, describe the pre-AP program and talk about their experiences this year.

Re:

Proposal for the Continuation of the Spiritual Theme, “Restore one another in a spirit of gentleness”, 2015-2016

“Restore one another in a spirit of gentleness”, has proven to be a rich spiritual theme for our board. In September 2014 we began with a focus on forgiveness using Paul’s letter to the Galatian community as a model for living with the gentleness and mercy that Jesus models for us. As has been the practice with previous spiritual themes, the second year of this theme will have a deeper focus. Pope Francis has declared next year the Year of Mercy. This will provide a new focus in the second year of exploring this theme as well as a continued emphasis on the restoration and renewal of the faith journey for all. I would like to propose an extension of this spiritual theme for the 2015 – 2016 school year. At the Board meeting on April 28, 2015, Jan Bentham, Coordinator of Religious Education and Family Life and I will present the rationale which supports the continuation of this theme.

We will be pleased to answer any questions the Board members may have at that time. RECOMMENDATION: THAT the Memorandum from the Superintendent of Student Success – Leading and Learning dated April 21, 2015 entitled Proposal for the Continuation of the Spiritual Theme, “Restore one another in a spirit of gentleness”, 2015-2016 be received.

The quote from Galatians has resonated with school communities and the outside community. Our gospel calling to reconciliation and forgiveness can be applied to many ways that we live in Catholic community.

As with all spiritual themes, the learning from these scriptural connections is enhanced every day in classrooms and school activities. 24

Re: Proposed Name Change for McMaster Catholic School __________________________________________________________________ At the Board of Trustees meeting on Tuesday, April 28, 2015, I would like to request that the Board consider a recommendation that McMaster Catholic School be renamed St. Gemma Catholic School, effective at the beginning of the 2015-2016 academic year. McMaster Catholic School has long been an active and important member of the Alta Vista community. It has seen many changes and has grown into a strong, 21st century Catholic learning community. Over the last few years, the school has had extensive renovations and improvements to the learning environment. Given that McMaster is heading into its 50th year, this is an ideal time to adopt a name that represents our Catholic identity. After consultation with students, staff, Catholic School Council, and community members it was clear that establishing a name within our Catholic tradition was a good idea. As outlined in the Board policy, the principal of the school, Mrs. Jennifer Grant consulted with her Superintendent of Schools and the Board’s Chaplain to begin the process. A letter was issued to families explaining the process and asking for nominations from the community. A committee was struck in early February to review the nominations and to make further recommendations.

30

-2-

The committee was comprised of the following individuals:        

Tom D’Amico, Superintendent Jennifer Grant, Principal Karen Weir, Teacher Jessica Bowie, Teacher Rev. Peter Sanders, Board Chaplain Rev. Greg Murray, Pastor at Resurrection of Our Lord Parish Linda Balduzzi-Vlamis, Parent, Secretary of McMaster’s Catholic School Council Christine Matheson, Parent, Parish Representative to McMaster’s Catholic School Council

The committee met and narrowed the list of possible names to five (St. Gemma, St. Dominic, St. Maximilian Kolbe, Christ the King, and Resurrection of Our Lord). The Grade 6 students at McMaster were called upon to research and develop presentations on each of the possibilities. They worked closely with Mrs. Grant to ensure that the information they were using was appropriate and accurate. The students learned that it is important to really understand each option and to be discerning when voting for something as important as a school name. 275 ballots were issued to the school community (one ballot per student and one per staff member). 214 were returned (78%). The school community’s top choices include:  St. Gemma Catholic School – 76 votes  St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic School – 47 votes  Christ the King Catholic School – 44 votes St. Gemma, the clear first choice of the community, was the first saint to live in the 20th century. She is the patron saint of students. St. Gemma was a strong student who won many academic awards before being forced to leave school after her father’s death. Her love of Christ led her to the Order of the Passionists but her own failing health meant that she was unable to join the convent. St. Gemma appeals to the McMaster community because of her strong desire to learn and her ability to stand up for her faith despite ridicule from her peers. She is an identifiable model of scholarship and faith. If the Board of Trustees approved this name change, the school will hold a school and community assembly in May to announce and celebrate the occasion. The current Grade 6 students will graduate from McMaster Catholic School as we transition to the name St. Gemma Catholic School.

RECOMMENDATION: THAT the Memorandum from the Superintendent of Human Resources, dated April 21, 2015, be received and the Board approve a name change from McMaster School to St. Gemma Catholic School, effective September 2015.
