What's Happening at University School | June 26


Principal Message, Kathy Salmon
It has been another amazing year at University School.  We are so proud of the learning that your children have been engaged with.  They have come with big questions, insightful ideas, thoughtful suggestions, creative solutions and unique wonderings.  They have a willingness to experiment and explore new concepts with an ever increasing confidence to take risks to approach problems differently, see things from other viewpoints and try new strategies.  We appreciate the parents and guardians that help us so many things each and every day: providing fruit for fuelling learning, reading with students, helping in the classroom,  going on field trips, shelving books in the library, serving pizza, organizing special events, attending meetings, helping at the casino, working in the garden, and oh so much more.  We really can’t do it without you and you help to make our learning community so amazing. The staff at our school have been incredible with your children and they are truly committed to this important work and arrive at school every morning with the hope of making a difference in your child’s life in some way each and every day.  Their talents, thoughtfulness and caring create the magic that makes learning come alive in the classroom.  I’d also like to thank Alison Van Rosendaal for her two years of service to this school community.  She went above and beyond and always put students first and truly made a difference for many students, families and staff!  We believe in your children and what they CAN already do and hope to inspire them to achieve what they ASPIRE to do!  Have a great summer everyone!
