August 19, 2016

It has been a whirlwind week in SD81! Teachers were welcomed back on Monday and were met with an inspiring keynote delivered by Consuelo Castillo Kickbush. Consuelo’s message left each member of our learning community inspired and ready to have a positive impact on every student in SD81.

As always, my favorite day of the week was the arrival of our students on Wednesday! It was obvious the kids were ready for their return based on the smiles and positive energy I felt from them. It is always so fun to welcome them back – their enthusiasm is contagious!

I have always maintained that SD81 has the most outstanding and committed educators! Their commitment to the children fills me with pride and gratitude. It was a week of “all hands on deck” to make sure we were ready for our students and as always regardless of title or role, every single member of our learning community put students at the forefront of their decisions.

A special thank you to our Kennedy parents for your patience as we implement our new arrival and departure procedures. The torrential rain Tuesday morning made the process even more interesting but we ended the week on a high note today. Please know, the processes and procedures we have in place are to ensure a safe arrival and departure of students. We appreciate your cooperation as we secure the safety of your children.

Have a great weekend! 🙂
