The Waterloo Catholic District School Board strives to create success for each and a place for all. St. Louis offers a program called Saturday Skills Builder and works with our day school elementary teachers to help students who need:
- more time and attention outside of 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 they need.
Taught by Certified Intermediate teachers , Skills Builder will provide instruction and additional resources to assist with the skills and tasks that follow this year’s curriculum. For example, Skills Builder could prepare them for tests and assignments with a more solid understanding of concepts, math formulas. When your child feels unsure and not following along in school, their confidence is affected. Teachers make every effort to make this time on Saturdays, fun and engaging, using technology and online resources, videos, tactile activities, independent and group applications, appealing to every learning style.
