the key is to be nice.

Help someone who struggles 
with science or with math.
By doing these acts of kindness 
you are on the right path. 

Smile at a student 
who looks like he’s feeling down.
See what this small gesture 
can do to his frown. 

Help a teacher out 
with that time consuming task.
Do whatever you can
even if they didn’t ask. 

Donate some of your great things 
that you don’t really need. 
See how good it makes you feel
when you do a good deed. 

Guide someone across the street
who struggles when they walk.

Stick up for a kid 
who’s being bullied at your school

Parental Consent

The Halton Catholic District School Board and your child/ren’s school collect student information under the legal authority of The Education Act and its attendant regulations, as well as The Immunization of School Pupils Act and The Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. During the school year, students may be involved in a wide variety of events and activities and it is an established practice for the Board and its schools to display and communicate information about these activities through a variety of channels. Parents of all student entrants must have completed and returned to their respective school, the Family/Information Consent Form, which is typically collected by each elementary school at the start of every school year. In secondary schools, this form is part of the option sheets.​​
