Nurturing Partnerships with Families


At Kenora Catholic, we embark on a purposeful journey side by side with our families, forging partnerships that enrich us all. At the heart of our system is the belief that the children and families we serve have amazing capacity. It is this conviction that propels us to not only INVEST in the growth of our students and educators but also to extend that investment to the families who accompany us on this educational path.

We have committed to making it a priority to ENGAGE families and foster partnerships that honour their knowledge, experiences, and values as this is what we need to influence both the school culture and curriculum. We want to GROW student learning with every child reaching their absolute God-given potential and we know that this only happens if we are working with families and creating partnerships.

Seniw FamilyDecades of research have resoundingly demonstrated that when parents are actively involved in their children's education, a profound sense of community and belonging flourishes. Moreover, the academic and social success of the student’s skyrockets. In our pursuit of excellence, we open our doors wide, inviting families to connect with us through various channels—our inboxes and phone lines eagerly await your input. This is not merely an invitation; it is a celebration of the richness you bring to our educational community.
Your knowledge and experiences are invaluable to us. What insights do you wish to share about your child? What aspirations and dreams do you hold close to your heart for your child's future? Recognizing the diversity and strengths within each family, we extend an earnest invitation to divulge your unique perspectives. This is a collaborative effort, and your input is pivotal to our collective success.

It's important to note that, in our embrace of the concept of family, we draw inspiration from the Anishinaabe word for "family," ningootootaa (neengootootah). In this profound definition, family transcends traditional boundaries—it encompasses anyone deemed "connected" as a member, whether by biology or choice, residing together or apart. We embrace the richness of this definition, acknowledging that families are expansive networks bound by strong bonds of kinship.

We are grateful for the opportunity to walk this path together, nurturing school communities where thriving is not just a possibility but a shared reality.
