We have made it to Spring Break. I hope that everyone has a relaxing and re-energizing holiday with your family. There is a lot of information inside our last update before the break.
Our first face to face event has been planned. We are hosting a celebration of learning on Wednesday, April 13th from 4:30pm to 6pm. Student work will be on display and it will be an opportunity for families to visit the school, and talk with teachers and administration for the first time in just over 2 years. We will also be using this event as an open house for prospective families and for our incoming grade 5 families. I am looking forward to seeing everyone in person.
We have a few staffing changes happening. This seems to be a common theme at Marshall Springs and across the school system this year. It does bring to light the journey that teaching staff has been on since the start of the pandemic. Personal Wellness has been brought to the forefront and I hope that each of you take a moment to reflect on how you can make a positive difference in a person's life. Appreciation and consideration can make a large impact on friends, family and even strangers.
Parting is such sweet sorrow (Romeo and Juliet). With this literary source in mind I wish to congratulate Mrs. Fife on her new position opening the Auburn Bay Middle School. Mrs. Fife has been a large part of our school community since the school opened 5 years ago. Mrs. Fife leaves a legacy of excellence and community service in our front office. We will begin the process of finding a replacement after Spring Break. For those of you wanting to wish farewell to Mrs. Fife, her last day is April 1st (no joke).
Welcome back to Mr. Martin. Mr. Martin will be covering Ms. Tailor's classroom until the end of April. Mr. Martin is an experienced teacher, having a full career in the CBE, and now in retirement taking on small guest teacher roles to assist schools.
We are also welcoming back Mrs. McCullough and Mrs. Huseynquiliyeva to our lunchroom, at the same time we are also saying goodbye to Mrs. Solnyshkina and Mrs. Drever in the lunchroom. Thank you for your work with our grade 6 students in our food services area.
