Dear Annie Foote Families,
It is hard to believe we are at the end of the school year. This year has been another filled with many ups and downs, twists and turns, but as expected our students and school community showed resilience and perseverance. We end the year with hope, as the last final COVID restrictions are being lifted, and with the spirit of optimism for a new school year.
I am pleased to share that for the first time in over two years, we held two mini assemblies in our gymnasium just last week. It truly was a milestone for me as Principal, as it was the first time we were able to gather in a large common space. Being together again was a reminder of what is important. As Dr. Jodi Carrington always says, “we are built to have connection”. It is those connections; the relationships we form amongst each other, which supports well-being, academic growth, and character development.
As always, it is vital for us to recognize the support that our families show us every single day. By working together, we have been able to navigate these unpredictable times and have grown closer as a community. That being said, we are saying goodbye to many of our staff members this year, with the opening of Prairie Sky School.
We wish all the best to the following teachers:
I will leave you with this quote from Anne Frank, which truly speaks to what I have seen from this great school community during the global pandemic.
“Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!”
As we end this year and look forward to the new school year, I wish everyone a happy, healthy, and wonderful summer with so much joy! Our final day with students will be on June 28 and please remember to check your PowerSchool account to view report cards online. They will be available on June 28 as well.
Our office will reopen on August 29 and we will welcome students back to school on September 1.
Take care of yourselves and each other. See you in September!
