December 2020 Principal’s Message

As we head into our winter break, I would like to extend a warm thank you to parents, students and staff for their kindness to each other and for working collaboratively to keep Varsity Acres School a safe and welcoming place to learn, despite the many challenges that the pandemic has presented. It has not been easy, however working together toward the common goal of helping our students thrive is a worthwhile endeavor, and I am so grateful for each of your contributions. It is an honor to be a part of this community.

I continue to appreciate everyone's quick adaptation and continued commitment to new pandemic protocols. I'm thankful that learning has continued for our students whether it has been at school, through the online HUB environment or at home when students were ill or required to self-isolate. This is no small feat, and I would like to highlight the work of our facilites team, our office admin team, our cleaners and Facility Operator and our lunchroom team who work to ensure that our building is and organized a safe place for our students to learn and grow.

The final week of school before break included some festive in-school activities including our Winter PJ sing-along on Microsoft teams and screenings of Storybook Theatre's Annie in some classrooms.

On behalf of everyone at Varsity Acres school, I wish you a restful winter break and hope that you can take as much time as possible to recharge and enjoy yourselves. We look forward to re-connecting online with all of our students on January 4, 2021.

 

All my best to all of you,

 

Meghan Morden

Principal
