As the school year comes to a close, we want to take this opportunity to thank you for the important role that you play in our education system. It is our privilege to work alongside you in partnership to support your children in reaching their full potential.
Over the past year, through town halls, coffee chats, community consultations, surveys and informal conversations, we have heard directly from students, families, employees and community members. The feedback we heard will guide and strengthen our ongoing work to identify and remove barriers and provide opportunities for all of our students to thrive and soar. Thank you to everyone who took the time to share their thoughts with us. We look forward to sharing our goals and strategic priorities with you in the new school year.
We hope that you have seen evidence of your child’s growth, learning and achievement throughout the year. Students and staff members have been working hard and continue to impress us with all that they have accomplished.
There are lots of opportunities to continue supporting your child’s learning over the summer, whether through reading, playing games or visiting local sites. In addition, the Board also offers a variety of summer learning programs for all ages. We also hope that you find time to relax and rejuvenate and enjoy the long days of sunshine and good weather.
Have a safe and enjoyable summer with your families. We look forward to welcoming both our new and returning families for the 2018-19 school year.
