It is hard to believe that a few months ago, I was dropping my daughter off for the first day of school and in a few short weeks, we will all say goodbye to this school year. What an amazing year! We successfully supported our students as they learned, created, stretched and explored.
Together, we accomplished a few things at School Council this year, we supported fun lunches which included Taco Tuesday, hosted a Spring Dance, set goals that included discussions around residencies to enhance learning and to include a multicultural component in another event.
We couldn’t have done it without the support of Ramsay Parent Association, those who volunteer in the classroom or out in the community, and none of this would be possible without the teachers and support staff who are the backbone of Ramsay School. Together, this year, we ensured that Ramsay was an inclusive, safe place for our students to learn.
But our job is not quite done. On June 8, we are holding the AGM which will happen after the School Council meeting. The AGM is at 7:15 pm and it is during this meeting that we will vote in next year’s Ramsay Council and Parent’s Association. It would be great to see old and new faces around the table as we close off this school year and vote in Ramsay Council and Parent Association for the 2017-2018 year.
Please join us on the last day of school as we close off the school year where we celebrate our students’ learning and growth and honor Aboriginal Communities through games, stories and raising a Tipi.
If I don’t see you in June, I look forward to seeing you on the playground in September.
It is an honor to be the Chair of Ramsay School this year and I want to thank you all for your support and being the big heart in our little school.
