Principal's Message

Sept 6, 2019

​Hello Captain John Palliser Families, 
Welcome back to school! I hope your summer vacation has been relaxing and filled with laughter and learning. Our year has started off with great excitement and anticipation of what is to come... 
As the principal of this amazing school, I feel honored and privileged to have the opportunity to work with such outstanding students, staff, parents and community members.  I feel so fortunate to be able to share my passion for public education with such a dedicated, supportive and hardworking group. I am confident that we will have a productive and enriching year as we continue our goal of developing safe, caring, welcoming and respectful learners prepared to access and contribute to the ever-changing world. 
A Greek philosopher wrote: Nothing endures but change.  Nowhere is this truer than in the field of education. Each school year brings new faces and ideas. We would like to extend a warm welcome to  our new families and staff who are sure to contribute in great ways to our learning community.  We look forward to meeting all parents at our welcome back picnic on September 20th.  There has also been great change both inside and outside the school building.  We have accessible entries to our school. This will be safer in the winter and more accessible for the entire community. Eventually there will be a handicap parking spot at the front of the building allowing easier access to the school for those with mobility limitations.  
We finished off our week with a great pep rally in the gym. We were NOISY and energy filled. Our goal was to be heard at Simon Fraser School and in the public library!  Our assembly included a great lesson about sticky words and kindness.  We shared the three greatest rules to follow in life:  1) Be Kind  2) Be Kind  3) Be Kind. This was followed by a great short activity about sticky words and toothpaste. Please be sure to ask your child about the toothpaste at today’s assembly and their learnings. For those student’s short on detail, there is a link to this presentation and the conversation that accompanies the presentation a little later in the weekly bulletin.

We know this will be the best year ever. The energy and enthusiasm in the school is visible in all that the children and staff are doing. We look forward to formally welcoming all parents back to school at our Family Picnic on September 19th. 
Have a great weekend! 
Dr. Bettesworth and Ms. Sharpe
