Welcome back to another school year! I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer that included fun-filled activities, memorable moments and time to rejuvenate and re-energize. I am so delighted that you are part of our amazing learning community. I welcome and value your positive energy and commitment to excellence in education. I look forward to working collaboratively with you as we continue our journey together.
Our educational motto: “You can be comfortable or courageous, but you cannot be both!” will amplify the importance of establishing strong relationships within our school community and beyond, to ensure that all students achieve and succeed. We are committed to building on our strengths and successes yet working diligently to enrich those areas that we want to see growth. All students are deserving of a rich, purposeful and rigorous education. This will take all stakeholders: students, staff, parents/families, community and our division to ensure a welcoming, inclusive, supported school environment where academic and personal success is achieved by all.
I leave you with the inspiring words of George Couros, “We need to make the positive so loud the negative becomes impossible to hear.” Let us begin our journey together!
