It is hard to believe that our first month of school is already over.  Students seem to be adjusting well to the new routines of the classroom and school yard.  Teachers have commented on the fantastic communication with parents via the agendas.  This home-to-school connection is so important – thanks for your vigilant efforts!

As the new principal, I am so excited about the upcoming year. It is my pleasure and honor to continue to be a member of this great school community. Having taught within the school for the past twelve years, it is abundantly clear how students and student learning are at the heart of all decisions that are made. Respecting the individual journey of each person in the spirit of inclusivity and equity is paramount. The collaboration between the school, families and community is one of a kind. 

As an educational leader, I firmly believe that a positive school climate, effective communication, critical thinking skills and the integration of technology are essential to prepare our learners to succeed in the 21st Century. To achieve this, I hope we continue to promote positive learning environments that are student-centered, creative, collaborative and innovative.  Our school encourages all students to achieve their full potential academically, physically and socially in preparation toward becoming a contributing member of society.  Continuing to support and promote the home-school-community connection will be of the utmost importance.

Together, I am confident that the 2014/2015 school year will be a successful one.  Please feel free to contact me with your queries, concerns or suggestions.
