Principal's Message

Message from Your New Principal

Dear Parents & Guardians,
As some of you may remember, I have been at Bowcroft before: I started my career here, became a learning leader (the very first one of the German bilingual program); left and became and AISI learning leader for math; went to Thomas B. Riley School and set up the German bilingual junior high program; returned to Bowcroft as the assistant principal, left again after three years; continued my learning as Assistant Principal at Banff Trail and William Reid, both Early French Immersion schools; and have been the principal at Colonel Walker School in Inglewood for the past three years.
I am now coming full circle by returning to Bowcroft as principal.  I am fluent in German and can support the growth and viability of the German bilingual program. In 2008, some parents participated in my thesis research survey as well as in my focus groups. My thesis dealt with “The Sustainability of the German Bilingual Program.” You can find it online, if you are curious and wish to read it. At the same time, I have provided support for complex learners for the past eleven years, doing the resource work at all of my schools.
So while I am new to most of you, it is almost like a homecoming for myself. I am looking forward to meeting and getting to know the staff, students and you, the parents. You will find me outside before school and at the end of the day. Please introduce yourself!
During the first parent council evening, I will be sharing more about myself as well as my educational beliefs. I am looking forward to working with all of you - students, staff and parents- to make Bowcroft the best place it can be. The place where we all want to be.
Warm Regards,
Meike Thomsen
