November 9 Newsletter

Hello St Leo Community!


Another word about parking.  Please be aware that during the day, the north parking lot is for teachers and TCDSB staff only.  It’s not for parents or even parent volunteers.  During drop-off, please do not use this lot.  Even for a quick run in and run out.   Please park elsewhere.  


Below are all the updates you need for the coming weeks:

  1. As you know the Marlies fundraiser is on.  The game is on Dec 2nd and tickets are on sale now for $25.  Tickets can be purchased through cash on-line (, or you can send cash or a cheque to the school with your child.  Please write cheques to St. Leo CSPC.
