Plantables are Back!!

Dear St Margaret parents and families,

We’re very excited to announce that we’ve chosen to be a part of the Plantables Fundraising Program for 2023.

We’re aiming to raise $1000 to fund some more trees for our school yard and every box of plants you buy helps us get closer to that goal.  (We get 10% of the total of every order you place.)

What Is Plantables? 

Plantables is an exciting family-owned company based in Forest, Ontario that grow healthy, hardy and happy fruit and vegetable plants.  The best part is, they ship them DIRECTLY to your door, when you want them!

That means that no matter how busy you are, how unsuccessful (successful!) you’ve been at growing plants before, you’ll be able to grow brag-worthy fruits and veggies!

All you have to do is pick what plants you want to grow, choose when you want them delivered and wait for your box of garden-ready plants to arrive on your doorstep. Shipping weeks are available from April- June.

How does the program work? 

All you have to do is help spread the plant love! Tell everybody you know to go to and make sure they enter the code STMARGARETGARDEN at the checkout or follow our direct link

We’re really excited to be launching a fundraiser that involves growing healthy fruits and veggies and spending time as a family!  We can’t wait to see how much we all can raise together.

Thank you for all of your support.

Multi-Year Strategic Plan – Feedback from the Community

Multi-Year Strategic Plan – Feedback from the Community

The Waterloo Catholic District School Board prides itself on being the Heart of the Community, providing Success for Each and A Place for All. With this Vision, we have developed our new WCDSB Multi-Year Strategic Plan (2022-2025) (MYSP).  This short video from Director Tyrone Dowling summarizes the process, content and goals for our new Strategic Plan.  This plan was approved by the Board of Trustees in December 2022.

At this time, we are gathering feedback to assist with our ongoing monitoring of the implementation of the current MYSP. We are inviting all staff, parents/guardians, and community members to provide feedback on our new MYSP plan (one per family/staff). Your input is valued and appreciated.

The survey will take less than 8 minutes to complete and will be available until May 23rd @ 8am.
