CTTCS Employee Advent Wellness Invitation – Week 1

#CTTCSWell2021

CTTCS recognizes the importance of practicing self-care so that we can provide the best quality support for the students in our schools.

That is why the division has provided each staff member access to the Canadian Mental Health Association’s online resource Not Myself Today

As well, we invite division staff to take part in daily invitations.  Each post to social media using the hashtag #CTTCSWell2021 is an entry for a weekly draw.

Parent & Guardian Survey 2021

Parent / Guardian Survey

Christ the Teacher Catholic Schools is committed to working together with parents and caregivers in partnership to promote faith formation and student learning.  We believe education is a collaborative process involving close interaction among the family, parish, and school.

To provide parents & guardians the opportunity to offer feedback into the programs and services available in our schools, CTTCS is committed to conducting a parent & guardian survey every two years.

This year, the Parent & Guardian survey will be available online at http://www.christtheteacher.ca/surveys/ from Friday, November 19th through Friday, December 10th.  Please contact your student’s school for the password.

Thank you in advance for your feedback, which serves as an opportunity to celebrate the good work occurring in our schools and Division, and inform on areas to be targeted for action planning and improvement.

Financial Literacy Month

November is Financial Literacy Month

November is Financial Literacy Month in Canada. During Financial Literacy Month, the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada engages with Canadians and works together with organizations across the country to help strengthen the financial literacy of individuals and families.

This year, Financial Literacy Month will focus on the renewed National Financial Literacy Strategy, and the importance of building financial resilience in challenging times and a digital economy. The campaign theme Make change that counts! aligns with the theme of the National Strategy and its call to action to make changes to the financial ecosystem to ensure it is accessible, inclusive, and effective for all Canadians.

Throughout the month, messages will focus on the following sub-themes based on the National Strategy’s key building blocks that have been proven to help consumers develop the skills, capacity and behaviours that lead to financial resilience.

  • Week 1 (November 1 to 6): Managing expenses to keep up with bills and credit commitments
  • Week 2 (November 7 to 13): Managing debt to feel in control of your overall debt situation
  • Week 3 (November 14 to 20): Managing savings to prepare for financial shocks and unexpected expenses, and achieve your financial goals
  • Week 4 (November 21 to 30): Navigating the financial marketplace with knowledge and confidence
