Elementary Schools Parents make the difference

Self-esteem is linked to higher grades and improved attendance

Studies show that when children participate in structured after-school activities, their grades are likely to rise.Their attendance is also likely to improve. Why? It may have to do with self-esteem.

After-school programs give kids opportunities to succeed at various activities, and their positive feelings of success may carry over into the classroom.

What does your child want to be?

At Thunder Bay Catholic Schools, we support our students' dreams through faith-based education.
