Skills Builder

Skills Builder 2018-04-04T17:34:49+00:00

The Waterloo Catholic District School Board strives to create success for each and a place for all. St. Louis works with our day school elementary and secondary teachers to honour that sometimes students need

  • more time and attention after school hours
  • a different approach to learning
  • to hear, see, and apply new knowledge more than once

Skills Builder is a literacy and numeracy support program for Gr 7 and 8 students attending ANY school within Waterloo Region.  If your child needs help to get through this transitional time and grades or study habits are suffering, encourage them to get the extra help he/she needs- FREE.  Certified Intermediate qualified teachers will provide instruction and additional resources to assist with the skills and tasks that follow this year’s curriculum ~ prepare them for tests and assignments with a more solid understanding of concepts, math formulas.  When your child is lost in school, their confidence is affected.  Because the program is offered on “Saturdays”, teachers make every effort to make this time fun and engaging, using technology and online resources, videos, tactile activities, independent and group applications.  Something for every learning style.

Dates: Offered Every Saturday 9:00am to 12:00pm October to April (regular attendance is optional, but strongly encouraged)

No classes during statutory holidays weekends, Christmas Break and March Break
