Final Message for 2021 - 2022

​Dear Chris Akkerman Families,

We made it! Summer is here and we are so happy with this past school year. Collaboration, team-work and dedication all led to amazing learning opportunities for students. We are excited for the break ahead and the anticipation of next school year.

I want to personally thank everyone, from students to staff to parents, for the wonderful support and kindness that has been shown over the past three years. I have absolutely loved being the Principal of Chris Akkerman School and I will take so many amazing memories with me when I leave. I will miss you all.

Our new Principal, Dr. Leanne Bettesworth, visited the school this morning. We are excited to welcome her and she will be a great addition to our staff. You are in good hands.

We would like to say thank you to the following staff who are all moving on to new schools: Teachers - Ms. Hu, Mrs. Barley, Mrs. Bower and Ms. Bates. Support Staff - Mrs. Khalil and Ms. Rajasansi. Good luck next year! We welcome Ms. Dvorkin, Ms. Thraya and Mrs. Grant to our staff for September.

Thank you for all of your Loonies for Literacy donations this year. Please see the thank you video below:


Wishing you all a safe and enjoyable summer. Students return to school on September 1, 2022. More information will come in August about the first day.

Derek Siakaluk
