Educational Assistants’ Appreciation Day

April 29th is Educational Assistants’ Appreciation Day.

The Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board has designated the last Friday of April as EA Appreciation Day to recognize the hard work, dedication and commitment of our Educational Assistants in realizing our philosophy of “Each Belongs,” and supporting students with special education needs to achieve their God-given potential.

On April 29, please join us in celebrating Educational Assistants’ Appreciation Day and letting our EAs know how much they are appreciated by our staff, students, parents, system and schools.

Prayer for Educational Assistants

God of blessings,
Today we give thanks for the gift of those
who are called to serve as Educational Assistants
in the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board.

These dedicated women and men are visible signs
of Your love in our school communities.

Fill them daily with the strength, courage and perseverance
they need to minister to some of your
most vulnerable sons and daughters.
Help them to know the Divine that dwells
within our hearts and to live this nature out.
Please encourage them by showing them specific ways
that their efforts are making a difference
in the lives of those students
placed in their care and in the world.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.
