Principal's Message

Message From HAB's New Principal


Dear HAB families,As this school year draws to a close and we look ahead to next year, I wanted to take a moment to send my best wishes to you and your families for a safe and happy summer break.  Over the last few weeks I have been working with the current administrative team to ensure a smooth transition for students and staff.  Everyone I have met speaks very highly of the students, staff and families of Hugh A. Bennett School.  I am looking forward to meeting you and your children in September.I also wanted to draw your attention to some important dates coming up in September.  Some of these dates are already reflected in our online calendar, but some are specific to our school community.Monday, August 29: School Office opensThursday, September 1:  First day of School- see back to school information on our school website for more informationMonday, September 5:  Labour Day:  School Closed.  No school for students.Thursday, September 8: First School Council Meeting:  We will meet at 1:00 pm online.  At this meeting we can make a plan for the format of the rest of the meetings for the year.  Coming to one meeting does not mean you have to commit to all of the meetings, but it is a great way to ask questions, give feedback and be involved in your child's schooling.  It will also be an opportunity to share you thoughts on how I, as a new Principal to Hugh A Bennett, can continue to support your child's learning and well-being.One of the most important ways parents/guardians and community members can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on the school council. Under the Education Act, a school council is a collective association designed to advise the principal and the CBE Board of Trustees on matters related to the school. School councils have legislated advisory and decision-making authority. They are different from Parent Societies & Associations, whose main function is to raise funds for the school.​​ You can find more details in the CBE School Council Handbook​.​Thursday, September 22: Open House for Parents.  Details will be sent out in September, but for now I wanted to let you know we are planning to welcome parents into the school that evening.  Mark your calendars!Friday, September 23: Non-instructional day: No school for students.There is additional back to school information on the school website.  Should you have any additional questions, our school office will reopen on August 29, 2022.Wishing you a safe and happy summer,Sincerely,Donna Diaz​
