Message from Administration | October/November
We have had a wonderful school start-up and look forward to an exciting school year! We
began our year with the construction of our new school playground. This has been a vast
undertaking by our very dedicated School Council and School Society members (current
and past). We want to thank them for their commitment in working tirelessly over the past
several years to make the playground a reality. We would also like to thank the volunteers
from Devon Canada and the Genesis Centre, as well as, the many community and parent
volunteers who came to help with the construction of the playground. The playground is in
the final phase of construction and we anticipate it will be completed by the end of October,
beginning of November (weather permitting). Our students and staff are tremendously
excited and look forward to playing on our new creative playground.
We want to thank all parents/guardians who attended our recent Parent-Teacher
Conferences that were held on September 21 and 22, 2017. We are very proud of our
students and staff, and their commitment to learning. We appreciate your continued
support of your child’s learning at our school. Your partnership with the school is invaluable
in advancing student learning! We would like to take this opportunity to let you know that
you may contact us at any time if you would like to further discuss your child’s progress.
Our next Parent-Teacher Conference will be held on December 7 and 8, 2017.
