Principal's Message

Welcome Back!

For those of you who are new to Dr. Freda Miller School, my name is Nancy Gillott, and I am the school Principal.  Our Assistant Principal is Julie Ramsay and together we welcome you to our school!  For those of you who are returning, welcome back!  We hope families have had a safe and relaxing break filled with good memories.  
We are excited to see our school population growing a little each year. This school year, if our enrollment stays as anticipated, we will have 3 half day kindergarten classes, four classes at each grade for grades 1,2 and 3, two classes of grade 4 students and three classes at grade 5.  
In addition to having Mrs. Kachra our Admin. Assistant back in the office with us and Mr. Williams back as our Facility Operator, we are excited to welcome two new lunch supervisors, Ms. Szabo and Ms. Rehman. We wish the best of luck to our lunchroom supervisors who were with us last year, Ms. Sharma who has accepted a different position at another school, and Ms. Zia who is on leave. Ms. Belot will be in Ms. Beamish’s role in the Den until October. 
Our team of four educational assistants will remain the same and we will welcome the following teachers; Ms. Ingenthron is joining us in Grade 1, Ms. Martinez in Grade 2 and Ms. Watson in Grade 3. During Ms. Smith’s maternity leave, we welcome Ms. Mikusek in Grade 2.  
Our office opens on Monday, August 28 at 9:00AM and our first day of classes is Thursday, August 31 with Kindergarten students having a specific staggered entry for the first two days.  While our beginning and end school times have not changed from last year, we have adjusted bell times during the lunch break.  You will be able to find all start-up information on our school website under Back to School Information.

As in previous years, you can expect a phone call from your child’s teacher on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, introducing themselves to you and your child and letting you know when and where to meet on the first day of school. We know you may have a lot more questions, but this first call is just a short introduction, and we will follow up with a letter or email from the teachers with more information about expectations and their program in the first week. If you miss the call from your child’s teacher, no worries, as teachers will also send out an email by end of day Wednesday, with the important start up details about their class. A meet the teacher/open house is scheduled for September 21, 2023 from 6-7 PM for all families. 
Please ensure you have registered through your my CBE Account for busing as needed and for lunchroom if your child will be staying at the school for lunch.   
Teachers send a weekly communication at the end of each week and the administration team sends out a weekly communication on Sunday at 5:00pm.  
We are looking forward to seeing our families this week and are excited about a wonderful school year ahead!  
Nancy, Julie and the staff
