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
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
