Dear Parents/Guardians:

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome new and returning students and their families to Thornhill Public School. 

We are committed to creating and fostering a warm, caring and supportive educational environment for your child. Throughout the year your child will be provided with many opportunities to grow intellectually, socially and emotionally within a framework emphasizing a positive self-concept.

Our Thornhill staff have a strong commitment to student achievement and well-being, creating an environment where everyone feels safe, welcome and respected. As a staff, we believe all of Thornhill students are OUR students. We take joint responsibility for each of their successes. We believe that all students have the right to feel like this is their home– that they belong – that they are respected as individuals and that they have a voice. Our goal is the development of citizens who will think critically, make decisions wisely, respect others, and behave responsibly. We embrace student voice and student choice to help guide our school initiatives and learning activities.
 
We believe communication is critical for student success.  Your children, our students, must see us as partners in their education.  We will contact you when (and if) your child develops patterns of poor decision making, and when they are not engaged in their learning.  We will ask that we work together to strategize our next steps towards improvement.  We will also contact you when there is reason for specific praise and celebration of success as we are often proud of student achievement and are excited to let you know -  as well as to ask you to extend the praise at home.    Please do keep the lines of communication open.   Let us know about medications your child may be on, planned trips, or conflicts that may affect your child’s day to day learning.  Our understanding of these matters will benefit your child’s self esteem as well as their achievement levels.
 
We look forward to a successful year together,
 
Partners in Education,
 
Scott Richards
Principal
