January 30, 2007 - The Sudbury Catholic District School Board welcomed prospective kindergarten parents and guardians to its second annual Kindergarten Information Night held at Marymount Academy. The purpose of the evening was to inform and enlighten parents regarding the Board’s kindergarten program and allow them to gain an understanding of the Catholic system which integrates faith and culture.

Sudbury Catholic District School Board Trustees, Senior Administration as well as school principals, vice-principals, kindergarten teachers and members of the Academic Services staff were also on hand to discuss the different supports that the Board has to offer, including community partnerships that enhance and support its programs.

Lucie Cullen, Academic Superintendent of Education for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board invited parents to visit many of the school and special interest group displays and kiosks and to personally connect with staff and agencies that were located on site throughout the evening. “Kindergarten is a bridge between early childhood development and the compulsory school system,” stated Cullen in her address to parents. “Classrooms of young children function as caring communities and are in effect, extensions of the home. The Sudbury Catholic District School Board offers students that same positive nurturing environment. As well as meeting the physical, intellectual, emotional and social needs we also have an added dimension and that is spirituality. We are there to nurture the faith of our early learners,” concluded Cullen.

New in this year’s presentation to the audience was the unveiling of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board’s state of the art eMac computers designed specifically for the kindergarten program. The eMac computers are now being introduced into the classrooms as a technological tool to promote literacy and numeracy and to enhance student learning.
