Principal's Message | June 2014


Dear Families,


On behalf of the staff I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation for your support manifested in a multitude of ways; focus groups, field studies, celebrations of learning, parent-teacher conference attendance, etc.


To all who are leaving Ted Harrison School; the grade nine students, families who are moving and our departing staff, Ms. Anne Hodgson who is moving on to Rosedale School, Ms. Michele Shultz (temporary contract) and Ms. Bethany Balis ( temporary Contract),  we wish everyone great health, much happiness and success.  They will be missed.


We welcome all of the families who will be joining our school community and new staff.   We are also welcoming a new program, CSSI, a class made up of five students.   Although our staffing is incomplete, joining us are the following: Ms. Candice Montgomery – CSSI teacher, Dr. Ankush Garg – grade 9 teacher and Ms. Megan Weild - Physical Education teacher, Ms. Christine Finney- Education Assistant and Ms. Michaela Heucks-Williams - Education Assistant.


All grades will be selecting their Career and Technology Foundation courses during the first few days of the new school year electronically.

inform | trips within walking distance


The CBE values the educational benefit of off-site activities and we want to ensure students have opportunities to go out into the community around their school with their teachers to complement their classroom learning. To allow this to happen more easily, we have simplified our process for trips that are within walking distance of the school.  This change does not include restricted activities such as swimming.


As parents, you will no longer need to fill out a consent form for your child to go on a class trip that is walking distance from the school, e.g. to a local park. Instead, your school will send a letter outlining local sites and what potential risks may be at the start of each school year. 


Teachers will be expected to let you know when they plan to include a trip to a local site. We believe that this change will allow teachers to more easily take advantage of places close to the school such as parks or libraries.

If you have any concerns please speak with your child’s teacher.


Student Safety


Help us keep your children safe. Student drop off and pick up in the school parking lot is prohibited.
