We hope that you have had a wonderful summer full of great adventures and memories.
Please note that Ms. O’Brien will be joining Strathmillan as our Vice Principal. She brings many skills as an educational leader and is looking forward to getting to know the Strathmillan community.
In addition, we are thrilled to welcome back Mrs. Stewart, Mrs. Hueging, Mrs. Sveistrup and Ms. Rose from their leaves last year. It is also exciting to share that Ms. Janzen will be joining us as our Music Teacher and both Mrs. Farrow and Mr. Kinasevych will be joining our Educational Assistant team this year. Mrs. Conci decided to retire over the summer and we wish her all the best in her retirement. We will announce our new Librarian once we have completed the hiring process.
We are pleased with all of the maintenance work that has been done to the school over the summer break and most importantly we can’t wait for everyone to see our new and improved courtyard. The entire courtyard received a much needed transformation. The rocks have been covered with grass and this now provides another wonderful learning space for the students and staff at Strathmillan to enjoy.
This year our school goals continue to focus on Literacy, Numeracy and the Whole Child. We will continue to be a Restitution School with an emphasis deepening students’ understanding of “what do great learners do?” to enhance student engagement and resiliency.
We are looking forward to another great year of collaborating with our families and the community to provide learning opportunities and celebrations this year. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns as we value your feedback and suggestions.
Mrs. H. Palmer & Ms. J. O’Brien
