Supporting Math at Home Survey

Dear St. Margaret Families,

Schools offer a variety of opportunities for parents to learn more about how to support their children: for example, events related to mathematics may be held at the school (e.g., family math nights); teachers may provide newsletters or communicate with parents through apps or social media; and school or board websites may provide helpful tips about how parents can engage in their child’s mathematics learning outside of school and may even provide links where they can learn more or enjoy math activities together. 

The following brief survey will assist our school district in gathering data about how parents/families feel in terms of being informed about what their children are learning in math, how parents/families feel about supporting their children’s learning in math, and about parental access to math learning resources at home.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and participation.

→  This survey will remain open until June 14, 2024.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the collection of this information please contact K-12 Mathematics Coordinator, Board Math Lead, Petra LeDuc at , 519-578-3660

Cambridge Host Families for International Students


We are looking for Cambridge Host Families!! 

Currently we are looking for host families for our 1 month summer program (June 28-July 25), but we also have full school year opportunities and short term programs throughout the school year. All types of families make good hosts. The families should be welcoming of their student and open to spending time together.

For our summer program, the students are from Spain and are 13-17 years old. They will go to St. Benedict Monday to Friday for English classes and participate in afternoon activities (swimming, bowling, canoeing etc). The students receive a GRT bus pass so families will have minimal driving expectations (arrival and departure at Cambridge Mall and evenings of our day trips to Toronto and Niagara Falls).

Host families provide a bedroom and meals (packed lunch for school days). The student can share a bedroom with a teen of the same gender, but must have their own beds. Bedrooms upstairs are preferred. If the bedroom is in the basement, the window must meet Ontario egress guidelines (at least 15″ in width and height). Suggested activities to do with the student include: seeing the fireworks on Canada Day, visiting a local market, going for a walk through a park, or watching a free movie in the Gaslight District.

Host families are provided with $1,050 for the program to help cover the cost of food and utilities.

It’s a super fun program and the students are lovely.

Please call or email us by May 24th and include your name and phone number!

Thank you,


Stefanie Hunt
