Welcome to the 2017-18 School Year

Kathi WallaceI am happy to welcome students and families as we start another school year, and to wish you all a great start to the new school year.
I hope everyone has had an opportunity to relax and recharge over the summer months and is ready to begin another school year. There is certainly much to look forward to – seeing and making friends, meeting new teachers and school staff, and new opportunities to learn and to apply learning.
Over the summer, we have been working hard to prepare our schools, classrooms and workplaces for a successful 2017-18 school year. 
Underlying this work is our ongoing commitment to equity and inclusion. It is very important to us that all of our students feel welcome and know that they are valued members of our school communities.
We continue to work with our trustees, colleagues, students, families and community partners to create safe, respectful and inclusive learning environments that inspire learning while nurturing student well-being and achievement.
When it comes to supporting student achievement, parents and families continue to be our most important partners. To help you transition your child back into school, we have put together some tips that will help get them off to a good start.
For your information, this letter is being shared with families this week.

I wish you all the best for 2017-18.


Kathryn Wallace
Interim Director of Education
