May you recognize in yourself the presence, power and light of your soul.

May you realize that you are never alone, that your soul in its brightness and belonging connects you intimately with the rhythm of the universe. May you have respect for your own individuality and difference.

May you realize that the shape of your soul is unique, that you have a special destiny here, that behind the facade of your life there is something beautiful, good and eternal happening.

May you learn to see yourself with the same delight, pride, and expectation with which God sees you in every moment.




Canadian Spring Weather 


       Dear Wolf pack families,  our Canadian spring temperatures bring snowy-wet playgrounds and partially-iced walkways. We care about your children and want them to be happy and comfortable playing outside every day. As we know, our Canadian spring weather can change from wet-cold snowy weather to warm wet weather and back to wet-cold very quickly. As we move into our uncertain spring temperatures please continue to have your children dress for the weather including boots , extra socks and an extra pair of sweatpants for

those wet playgrounds accidents. 

       We are very aware that the city sidewalks alongside our kindergarten yard and the soccer field tend to be iced over in the morning. If you feel that these walking routes are too unsafe please switch direction and enter the school property alongside the staff parking lot as we continue to monitor our school property walkways and will sand and salt as necessary. Please avoid cutting across the soccer field at this time as it is pooling with icy water underneath the snow making the morning and afternoon commute very unsafe. 


Welcome Kindergarten Evening


 To our newest Wolfpack families. Our  Welcome to Kindergarten packages will be sent to you very soon. Please mark your calendars as our St.Thomas More Virtual Kindergarten evening will be held on Thursday, May 6th starting at 5pm. More information will be sent to you closer to the date.
