Dear Parents & Guardians,
I wanted to provide you with an administrative staffing update- it's been a very busy and complex week. Mme. Lina, our Assistant Principal, will be on a short term leave of absence. In her absence, Ms. Kelly Galvin, Learning Leader and Resource Teacher, will be Acting Assistant Principal. This is a very natural step for Ms. Galvin as she's got a firm understanding of the administrative role and how the office runs.
While Ms. Galvin is in the Acting AP role, Mrs. Tegan Paul, our music teacher and Learning Leader, will be supporting in the resource role. This time of year is very busy with deadlines for special program applications, student assessments, and the beginning stages of planning for next year. It's important that this work continues with a strong admin team. Mrs. Paul's contribution to this work will be valued and appreciated and will be a great leadership opportunity for her.
For the next ten days or so, students will not have music. We have hired Mrs. Jacquie Strom, a parent in our school, to teach physical education in lieu of music. Mrs. Strom recently joined CBE as a substitute teacher with French and personal training as part of her skill set. Our students are very lucky to have her work with them in the gym!
Thank you for your understanding and support as we make these temporary teaching adjustments. If you have any questions, please reach out to me directly.
