Principal's Message

​September IS the most magical time of the year !

Years ago there was a commercial about back-to-school shopping set to the Christmas Carol of “The Most Magical Time of the Year”. An exuberant father pushes a shopping cart down the aisles of school supplies followed by his children who drag their feet and look less than excited about the prospect. As a parent I certainly understand the adult joy and (sometimes relief) of back to school. As a teacher my heart hurts a little for those mopey faces and I often wish that the narrative about back-to-school was more positive.  In a sea of memes about back-to-school I struggle to find one that truly expresses how I feel. Don't get me wrong. I love summer break! I love the hours of blissful disconnected freedom, but I am a teacher, and my love for teaching, students and learning makes this a very special and energizing time of the year!
After my first official week at Edgemont, I am feeling especially grateful to be part of this learning community. On Monday night, nearly half of our teachers joined me in welcoming our community to our first Chalk the Walk event. The weather was beautiful as hundreds of parents and students chalked our walkways with positive messages for the year to come. Students reconnected with friends and past teachers.  I appreciated the opportunity to meet so many of our families, members of our community association and our School Board Trustee, Althea Adams. One teacher pointed out that the event also served as a “soft start” to the school year, allowing students who might be anxious about the first day to reconnect before Tuesday morning.  
Over the summer you may have noticed some changes to the exterior of the school. The most obvious development of course is the construction on exterior and the roof. I am told that construction will likely continue through November. I am very impressed with the commitment the construction crew has to our students’ safety. Since the students’ return workers are on the look out for classes making use of the outdoors and stop all work while students are present. Many thanks to David Demchuck and his team! Another improvement to our school is the replacement of the popular “spider” climber on the playground. Thank you to our School Council and the Edgemont Community Association for helping to make this possible! 
On the staffing front I hope you will all join me in welcoming Mrs. Carlee Raybould-Amsing who is teaching grade 4, and Miss Danielle de Nance who is rejoining the grade 3 team!  I think I speak for all 3 of us when I say that we feel welcomed and valued at Edgemont School already! 
I AM excited to be back to school! Fundamentally and at the core of my being I am a teacher and  I love my job! I thrive on the connection I have with students and our community ! I am most alive in the moments when students or staff break through their learning barriers and move themselves forward.  I am privileged to have found a profession that fills me with so much purpose, meaning, joy and LOVE, every day. I look forward to meeting parents and being a member of this wonderful place for years to come!
