Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2022-23 School Year

​Welcome to the 2022-23 school year!  We are so excited to begin what will be an incredible year at HD Cartwright. We currently have more than 450 students enrolled, and we are expecting more families to join our HDC family over the next few weeks.  
We had a great first couple of days with students on Thursday and Friday. Students spent time meeting their teachers and classmates and learned about some of the amazing things that HDC has to offer.   
Our enrollment is higher than our spring projections and what we anticipated in June. We have had many families move into our designated catchment areas over the summer. As such, we are looking at various scenarios to make sure that we being responsive to our student learning needs. As such, it may be necessary to re-structure or make some organizational changes to accommodate our higher student numbers (ie. addition of staff and homeroom classes). If there are any changes being made, we will communicate these decisions with families as soon as possible.  
HDC strives to be a place where all students feel welcome and that they belong. We want to provide opportunities for them to explore their interests and passions, develop positive relationships, learn and grow, and have some fun along the way. 
Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you ever have any questions or concerns.  
I look forward to an excitng and successful year here at HDC!
