Dear Woodbine Families,
I hope this 'Round Up' finds you excited for the end of the school year and the summer activities you have planned with your families, especially with restrictions easing!
As Principal, it has been an honor to start to get to know the Woodbine school community these past few weeks. I have come to learn that at Woodbine there is truth in the saying, 'It Takes a Village to Raise a Child'. Each day is an opportunity to witness parents involved in their children's learning alongside teachers who are dedicated to their progress and improvement.
I am excited about the future and look forward to many years of great learning. Congratulations to all of our students for completing another significant year in their educational journey! To Woodbine's grade sixes, enjoy your junior high school years; I am sure you are ready! We welcome the many new kindergarten students and families and all new students to Woodbine for next year.
Thank you to your School Council, who I met for the first time on June 23, 2021, and for their strong support of Woodbine school, as it is very much appreciated. Many learning resources and events would not have been possible without the dedicated commitments of this strong group of parents over the years.
Thanks to the staff of Woodbine School who have made this a great year of learning through their hard work and dedication to your students. I am honored to be welcomed into such a caring learning community.
At the end of the year we have to say 'Farewell for Now Friend' to several staff members. Farewell to Mrs. Bellamy, Ms. Parker, Mr MacKinnon, Mrs Sinclair, Mrs Lemon and Ms Ellis.
Have a great summer with your families!
