Principal’s Message | October 2017

The month of September has passed quickly. It feels just like yesterday the long days of summer sunshine were here. Now with fall upon us, we have been blessed with beautiful fall weather. It has been wonderful to see the changing colours, breathe the crispness of the air and enjoy the transition of the seasons.

This is a time to reflect on what we are thankful for: families, our health, our passions, our loved ones, and our country. I am thankful that we have had such a wonderful start up to the school year. Students are well immersed in routines and rituals, and teachers have worked hard at creating cohesive learning communities and experiences.

Students and coaches have been busy with Cross Country Running, Soccer, and Volleyball. The entire school was able to take advantage of our beautifully warm weather and participate outside in the annual Terry Fox Run. It is also been an exciting time for students as we commenced band clinics/rehearsals and we prepare for our Spanish Exchange students to arrive this weekend. I am grateful to work at SPB with such wonderful staff and students. I hope you all find ways this month to express and acknowledge the blessings in your life and the joys that help bind us all together.

Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings. William Arthur Ward
