Principal's Message

We Love Our Volunteers!

​There is nothing more gratifying in my role as a principal than to know that we have such a supportive and committed community of parents in our community.  It is essential to me that I share with you how much your volunteerism benefits our children and to let you know that we feel you are a partner in the work that we do daily.
When you volunteer you broaden students’ experiences; students have the opportunity to interact and learn from yet one more positive role model.  Students are able to develop relationships that extend past their home and their classroom.  Students are afforded the opportunity to develop relationships and bonds with their surrounding community.  You are instrumental in developing a sense of belonging for students not only within our school but within the community of Dalhousie.  You enrich the lives of our children because you are yet another trusted adult in their lives.
When you volunteer in the classroom you provide just the right and type of extra support needed to children.  The time that you spend with children in school helps them to become better readers and writers, to improve in their concentration skills and expand their vocabulary.  You help students develop their imagination and learn about the world around them. Most of all children report that engaging in tasks with parent volunteers is “ MORE fun”. Apart from the benefits to the children you are a lifeline for teachers; because of you teachers are afforded a bit more time in class to perhaps conference with more students one on one.  
When you return and volunteer regularly you teach students that commitment is an important part of life.  You inadvertently teach them to stick to their goals and put forth their best effort.  You teach students to be giving, selfless and compassionate citizens.
When you attend fieldtrips and special presentations you teach children to be lifelong learners.  You model for them that inquisition and wonder is a lifelong characteristic.  You show then that learning never stops.
When students see you in the school, they see first hand how members of their community value education and support their local school. Because you are so very involved in our school, the community has a better sense of our school mission and vision.  You are the ambassadors that show your dedication to educating our youth.  Because of you the community trusts us and are committed to us.  Because of you school begins to feel like family!
When you volunteer you enrich our lives because you help us showcase our work and you help us highlight our achievements.  When you volunteer you bring the joy of childhood to us.  You organize dances, movie nights and sports days!  These are the events that enrich our schooling experience.
Without you we would not be who we are today.  On behalf of all of us; students and staff; know that we are very proud and thankful to you for your volunteerism.  We value and cherish you because you make our life better every day.  We are a school that benefits from the socio-emotional and material support you provide us.
