Hi Saints Families,
Well, here we are! We have all experienced the most difficult school year imaginable, but here we are so close to the end! For all of us, I think it is both emotional and exciting that summer break is approaching. Together we have navigated a historical year filled with protocols and numerous pivots, but also positive possibilities and promise. A sincere THANK YOU to all our staff, parents/guardians, especially our students for showing perseverance, patience, and understanding as they continue to be dedicated to their learning each day. Whether waking up and logging into class or arriving at school wearing masks, they have been inspirational to us. It has been a team approach and together we made it thus far…2 school days to go! We got this, Saints!
On behalf of all of the staff, we wish all of the families a very peace-filled, healthy and safe summer.
To our Grade 8 Graduates, we hope that the Graduation send off gives you something you will remember. Congratulations again on your Graduation as a Saint. Good luck with the next chapter of your life at High School. Make us proud as you have for so many years already! #OnceASaintAlwaysASaint
We have missed all of you and look forward to seeing you again on September 7th.
Be Well, Saints!

God of Wisdom,
We thank You for all of the gifts You have given us throughout this school year.
We praise You for giving us life, for saving us in Christ, and for choosing us to be Your people.
As we come to the end of this school year, we voice our gratitude for the good things you have done in us, and we praise you for all who have shared in the work of St. Clement School.
