From the Principal’s Desk

Greetings All Saints Families,

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year. I would like to take this opportunity to (perhaps, once again) introduce myself and express my excitement in becoming a part of the All Stars community. My name is Fabio Nardo and I truly feel blessed to be your Principal for the upcoming school year. Although in June we said farewell to a fantastic leader in Mr. Schirripa, I vow to complement and continue the rich traditions established within this exemplary Catholic learning community. I hope the students, staff, and parent community can take solace in knowing that we will find opportunities to welcome back former staff, students, families, and, of course, Mr. Schirripa, to provide them with the proper send-off that they deserve, when it is safe to do so.

It is great to begin my next chapter in education at a place I affectionately once referred to as home. I began my teaching career in Markham at St. Kateri Tekakwitha and St. Julia Billiart, respectively. I fondly remember, at that time, visiting All Saints CES, for a number of events, and always held the staff, students, and parent community in the highest regard. I feel privileged to be back and now become a part of this family.

I spent my years as a Vice Principal at St. Raphael CES, St. David CES, Father John Kelly CES, and Our Lady of Hope CES, before becoming the Principal of St. Cecilia CES, in Maple, where I spent the last 5 rewarding and memorable years. In all of these communities, I witnessed first hand the truth behind the African proverb and can appreciate that it truly does take a village to raise our children. I look forward to working with the staff, students, parent community, and parish, in order to ensure that student success, in its most holistic form, can be nurtured and celebrated on a daily basis.

While the weeks and months to come have perhaps more questions than answers associated with them, I take great solace in knowing that this community will always rally around our children. All Saints CES will continue to work tirelessly to ensure that any transition is a successful and positive one and that student safety and well-being remain of the utmost importance.

Until we meet, I pray you and your family have a safe and enjoyable remainder of the summer. Please continue to check your emails regularly for updates as we prepare for the first day of school.

Yours in Catholic Education,

Fabio Nardo
