This will be my last principal’s message for this school year, as I will be taking the months of May and June off to finish my doctoral degree. Thank you for all of the well wishes… it is the people that I will certainly miss the most during my time off. I also thank you for your support, as I certainly could not have pursued this degree without having the encouragement from the staff, parents, and students. I will be visiting from time to time, and attending a few special events that are happening at the school. I leave the school in very capable hands, and I know that you will extend your support to Mr. Turner who will be the acting principal, and Ms. Lam who will be the acting assistant principal.
There is a lot happening in the month of May! To show our appreciation, on May 10 we’d love to take the opportunity to celebrate all parent volunteers! Highwood School’s annual parent volunteer appreciation tea will take place at 1:00 in our school gym. Please ensure that you RSVP by May 7 to the school, if you are able to attend. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is a nice afternoon where we as a school get to spoil parents with food and beverages, as well as highlight the many talents that our students have. I hope that you are able to make time in your busy schedule to attend this special event.
I would also like to invite all parents to our Celebration of Learning evenings. Celebration of Learning provides students the opportunity to show parents what they have learned, how they learned it, and what they would still like to learn. Thursday, May 17 at 6:30 is for AM Kindergarten, Grade 2 and Grade 4 families. Thursday, May 24 at 6:30 is for PM Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 3 families. It is a celebratory evening dedicated to learning and the learning process.
Principal, Highwood School
