It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Exeter Elementary School ~ Home of the Jr. Panthers!! We certainly continue to grow and develop as a community and we are looking forward to the great things that will happen this year.
Exeter Elementary is located in the town of Exeter in Huron County, which is on highway # 4, north of London, south of Clinton and west of Lake Huron. Our enrolment will be approximately 340 students. Many of our students walk to school; a percentage of our students are bussed. The school was originally the town high school built in 1939. It has gone through a series of renovations in 1950, 1954, 1960, 1973, 1977, 2003, 2007 and most recently, the summer of 2012.
At Exeter Elementary, we are dedicated to continuous improvement in all areas for the students and families we serve. We work hard to develop a strong sense of pride and commitment in our school. We value the many community volunteers that work with our students, including parents, high school peer mentors, retired teachers and volunteers. Our active School Council, Safe Schools Committee and Eco – Council provide guidance and support by collecting and compiling parent and student perceptions, fund-raising to support programs and equipment and planning fun and enriching activities for our students. The support we receive from the surrounding community is ‘second-to-none’ and is part of what makes E.E.S. a truly great place to be!
Our dedicated staff includes teachers, early childhood educators, educational assistants, a technical resource assistant, office manager, custodians, vice-principal and principal. Our collective goal is to provide quality experiences for our children, to focus on and build on their strengths, to create a safe place for them to learn, to develop increased student responsibility and independence, and to acknowledge, honour and support individual student differences – in short, to make Exeter Elementary School the best it can be.
Abby Armstrong, Principal.
