Principal's Message

Sparking Creativity…Growing Together…

Wow, what a month at Nellie. So many exciting things are happening in our amazing little school. I am so proud of the students, staff and parents who continually come together to create meaningful learning experiences for everyone. I am particularly proud of all of the work that everyone put into our logo and motto. This work was challenging as we tried to ensure that every student and every stake-holder had a voice in the creation and decision making process. We are so proud to be able to unofficially unveil our new logo. The official unveiling will be at our 50th Anniversary Celebration in June.
May is going to be an even busier month at Nellie. With all of the field trips, guest speakers, performances and special events we are going to have a very full calendar. We are excited about the One World Drumming, our Grade 4/5 Production, our trips off campus and of course our Celebration of Learning. We are also looking forward to Spring Photos and our whole school photo which we will be proudly displaying in our school.
Our school council is one of the strongest in the city. Thank you to parents and staff who are not only working on this year’s projects (such as our anniversary celebration, fun lunches, and Grade 6 farewell), but who are also already planning and dreaming for next year. From school beautification, to naturalization, to fundraising to program planning, your parent group is working hard to make sure that the students at Nellie McClung have the best opportunities available to them.
Thank you all for “Sparking Creativity and Growing Together”. Nellie is an amazing school because of the people who care so much for one another. Your generosity, gracious spirit and the family atmosphere you create really makes a difference.
We have started the planning process for next year. We are listening to your input and making decisions according to the priorities you have shared with us. You know your child better than anyone. If you feel that there are special placement considerations for next school year, please email and let me know. Sometimes students need a different classroom, they may need to work with a certain peer or sibling, or not…
If you would like to make requests for next year, please send them to me by May 16.
As always, we welcome any feedback that you may have. If you have any questions, concerns or comments please call me at 587-777-6331, e-mail me at or just stop in for a visit.
Sincerely, Darren Dyck
