Principal's Message

September/October 2019

​Welcome back to another great year at Chris Akkerman. I am excited to be the proud new Principal at this great school. I had the opportunity to work at Akkerman as Assistant Principal back in 2015 and I am very excited to return. We also have a new Assistant Principal, Debbie Bauman, and together with all of the staff we will work to ensure each child receives the best education they can each and every day. For all information regarding Chris Akkerman and the TLC program, we’d ask you to read through your child’s agenda with them. The agenda outlines the expectations and requirements of the TLC program and can usually answer any questions you have. It’s also the best way to communicate with your child’s teacher. If there is any information you need to pass onto the teacher, please write it in the agenda. You can also email the teacher with any questions or concerns you may have. We have an exciting two months coming up. The virtues for September and October are respect and thankfulness. We strive to ensure that we are helping shape individuals who not only learn the curriculum and important life skills, but who will be kind, conscientious and strong individuals. We celebrate each virtue at the end of the month through a learning assembly to recognize the importance of our learning.
Uniforms: Please ensure that your child has the appropriate pieces to our school uniform. All expectations are outlined in the agenda and will be reinforced through the teacher. Mondays and assembly days are always formal days. If your child is not wearing the proper formal uniform on these days, the school will phone the parents who will be expected to bring the appropriate pieces.
Parking: As you know, the majority of students are bused each day to and from school. We require the use of the street in front of the school and the alley for these buses to park. Please do not park in these areas when you drop off and/or pick up your child. Also, please ensure you use the crosswalk when crossing the street to ensure the safety of everyone.
Thank you all for your support. We couldn’t have such a great learning community without the support of our Akkerman families.
