Latest News & Events
Our school, in partnership with Eastern Health and the Former Eastern School District, has secured a grant aimed at educating and encouraging students and their families to live healthy. The appropriately named “Living Healthy Grant” is being coordinated by Mr. Darryl Edwards.
Our students began Yoga on November 4th and a calendar of events for November is posted. Please note that Yoga has been moved to Tuesday afternoons. The December calendar is under review due to some clashes and will be available soon. Keep checking this section for any calendar revisions and start making new plans to Live Healthy.
The first term for this school year is quickly coming to an end. Parents/Guardians who have not picked up their PowerSchool on-line access codes are reminded that these are available from the school by contacting the school secretary.
Student Report Cards will be released at the end of the day on Wednesday, November 13th. Parent-Teacher conferences will then take place on Thursday, November 14th from 1:30 to 3:30 PM and again from 6:30 to 8:30 PM. To accommodate this schedule, students will be dismissed on November 14th after period 3 at 11:37 AM.

The Annual Roncalli Christmas Raffle will take place on Sunday, December 1, 2013 starting at 2 p.m.

Come on out and enjoy a fun day with the family while supporting your neighbourhood school.
Tickets for our annual Roncalli Christmas Sweeps will be distributed on Wednesday, November 6th with the draw date on Friday, December 20th. This is Roncalli’s biggest fundraiser for the year and usually provides big rewards for the students and the school.
Tickets cost $1.00 each and purchasers have a chance to win a top prize of $1000, a second prize of $500, third prize of $250, or one of five $50 prizes.
Please support students when they come to your door. For their efforts, student can qualify to win an I-pad Mini (sell $100 for one entry and get another entry for each additional $50 sold), three prizes of $200 each (sell $40 for one entry and get another entry for each additional $20 sold), and everyone has their name entered once to “win what you sold.” Every student who sells $40 gets FREE admission to the Christmas Ball and students can earn a cheque for $100 for every $500 they sell.
Each Monday there will be a draw for $20 from all those turning in money early along with daily winners for Free Sweep Tickets during the sweeps. There will be a Homeroom Competition with the highest selling homeroom getting their choice of field trip (Paint Ball or Dinner & Movie). The second highest selling homeroom gets Pizza and a Movie in school while the third highest selling homeroom gets a Tim Horton’s breakfast.
We hope everyone can sell $40 in tickets and hope many others will take advantage of our incentive package. All net proceeds go directly towards the purchase of educational resources for the school.
Roncalli is in year 2 of using the “Student Information System” called PowerSchool to manage the daily operations of the school. Through the Parent/Student Portal, you will be able to contact your student’s teacher via email, view grades, attendance, assessment information, class schedules, and the school bulletin for your students(s).
The administration and staff of Roncalli Central High are excited to continue to provide you and your student(s) with access to this Parent/Student Portal via the Internet. For parents of students returning to Roncalli this year, your present account is still valid.
A letter containing an Access ID and Password has been generated for ALL students including our Grade 7 students for this year. The letter also contains a detailed set of instructions on how to create your individual accounts.
To access this letter, we respectfully ask that parents drop by the main office during regular hours from 8:15 AM to 3:30 PM to pick up your letter. You can also call or email the school and request for the letter to be sent home with your child.
Once you receive your account information, the attached NLESD Parent Portal UserGuide Sept 2013 Final may also be helpful in navigating the site.
We regret any inconvenience this distribution method may cause as we attempt to protect these passwords and ensure they land directly in parents hands.
