“Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today”. Malcom X
Spring is here and now we are looking ahead to next year. The planning process is dependent upon some key factors: Financial Resources (Budget) given to each school to run smoothly and the projected number of students entering the building for the 2021-2022 school year. Thank you for all the parents that took time to share their feedback on the 2021-22 survey. The results of the survey will be shared at School Council and on our website.
If you know that you will be moving, please contact the school by calling or emailing your homeroom teacher. Also, if you have any children born in 2016, please call and register them for Kindergarten. Having a good idea of student population, allows us to plan classes and have less movement in the Fall.
In staffing news, we would like to welcome back Ms. Brocke! Ms. Brocke is very happy to return to Cecil Swanson after her maternity leave. We would also like to thank Ms. Krygier for her amazing work with our Grade 3 classes. We would also like to say thank you to Ms. Stephanie Cassell for all of her work as Lunchroom Supervisor. Your dedication to our School Community will be missed.
With the arrival of spring, many students will begin to ride their bikes and walk, to school. It takes a while to adjust to using “wheels” to ride to school, and gravel along the edges makes for slippery surfaces. Please be extra vigilant in watching for students and following all traffic and safety measures. Students who are bringing bikes to school are reminded to securely lock items to the appropriate rack in the playground and to wear an appropriate helmet. If your child chooses not to wear a helmet, we will be calling you to either pick up their bike/scooter or bring a helmet for them. Safety first.
Our School Council virtual meeting is on May 4, at 6:30 pm. If you would like to join the Council, please email Adam Topp at email@example.com and we will send you the link.
Again thank you for your on-going support to our school community and of course your children’s’ success.
Adam Topp, Principal
Joan Murtagh, Assistant Principal
