Principal's Message

October 2018

​Gratitude
It is hard not to pause at this time of the year to express our gratitude to our wonderful parent community. Our first month of school is behind us and things are rolling along beautifully. It was great to see so many families participate in student/teacher/parent conferences in September. Showing interest and investment in your child’s education has a strong positive impact on their school experience.
We want to thank all the families for sending in messages of appreciation to our amazing staff at Griffith Woods School for World Teacher’s Day. Our staff were touched and left for the Thanksgiving weekend feeling loved.
School Council is a great way as a parent to get involved in the school and we are grateful for the collaborative work the council members are doing to help build community among our families. Our next meeting is Wednesday, Oct. 17th at 6:30 pm in the Learning Commons. 
Student safety is a priority!
 Safety Before Convenience 
If you are within the bus zone and your child is registered for the school bus, please as much as possible, use this means of transportation. It significantly decreases traffic around the school, thus making it safer for all.
It is imperative that you adhere to all traffic safety laws when dropping off your child at school. Set a good example by using crosswalks and obeying traffic laws. Please help us by reminding your children and reinforcing their positive choices.
There is no parking or drop off in bus zones. Please do not park near or block crosswalks and corners. It is important to drive the extra distance rather than dangerously doing a u-turn on such busy streets. It is in fact illegal to perform a u-turn.
While we recognize that everyone is busy, it would be tragic should a serious incident occur. We all play a part in ensuring safety for all our students!!​
