Week at a Glance

April 22 – 26, 2019

Cause of the Month: – Canadian Down Syndrome Society, a non-profit organization that provides support to and advocacy for families and people with Down syndrome through important events like the Canadian Down Syndrome Conference, and Go21, as well as resources and information, and more . Donations can be made through School Cash Online.

As is past practice, St. Thomas Aquinas donates funds raised through civvies days to charitable causes selected by our student leaders.  This year, St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Secondary School has shifted from collecting money from civvies days to collecting monthly donations.  Our school community will be highlighting a “Cause of the Month” in our Week at a Glance messages, which will change every month. Families are welcome and encouraged in supporting each month’s specific cause/charity through a donation made to the school via School Cash Online https://hcdsb.schoolcashonline.com/.  Donations will roll over each month with a new charitable cause.  Any donation is welcome including the previous $2 civvies collections
