Principal's Message

A Look Back and a Look Ahead

As the school year winds to a close, I would like to thank all of the staff, students, and parents for the amazing work that has been accomplished over the course of the year. It has been an incredible year, and I am honoured to be a part of the Ethel M Johnson School community. We had many successes throughout the year, and gave students many enriching experiences, such as the Quest Theatre residency, Jump Rope for Heart, swimming, outdoor school, the gingerbread house building evening, family movie night, numerous extracurricular opportunities, and multiple field trips throughout the year.
I would like to thank our School Council for their incredible work over the course of the year. Through various fundraising activities, council has funded many activities for EMJ School students for this school year (including most of the activities listed above). This is a truly incredible support for students, and without the support of council we would not be able to do the many things that we do.
Going forward for next year, we are working on making class lists and determining grade configurations. This is work that we put a great deal of time and effort into, and is not typically finalized until September when we have a definite number of students. If you are aware of students that might be coming to EMJ in the future, please encourage parents to register as soon as possible so that we can make sure our class lists are up to date.
The process is thoughtfully completed by staff and designed to set students up for success while keeping the big picture in mind. Teachers may not be teaching the same grade next year and some may take advantage of opportunities provided by the CBE teacher transfer process.
We have some staffing changes at EMJ for the upcoming year:
Ms. Warbeck will be taking a year away from teaching, while Ms. Somers, Ms. Hill, Ms. Leishman, Ms. Ruberto, and Ms. Thompson are all heading to new locations. I want to thank each of these individuals for their hard work at EMJ, and I wish them each the best in the future.
After 33 years with the CBE (13 of which were here at EMJ), Dan Jones is retiring. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Dan over the past year, and I wish him all the best in his retirement. He has had a huge impact on EMJ over the years.
I would like to wish our Grade 6 students and those of you that may be moving all the best in the upcoming school year. We are always happy to see visitors in the Fall!
All the best this summer, and I am looking forward to another great year together!
Chris Radu Principal, Ethel M Johnson School
