Principal’s Message

A special thank-you to all of the volunteers and families that helped make our Spring BBQ a resounding success. I was truly impressed with the sense of community and the overwhelming amount of support for the school.

Looking forward to next year, our school is currently organized and staffed as follows: KA, KB, 1/2, 1/2, 3, 3/4, 4/5 and 5/6. Best wishes to Mrs. Ryder as she is taking next year off on a leave. Best wishes to Ms. Davis, Ms. Montgomery and Mme. McKillop-Godin who will be moving on to different assignments next year.

The character attribute for the month of June is Integrity. Integrity is defined as the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles. Students can demonstrate Integrity at school by:

  • always being truthful with others and themselves
  • standing up for what is right and just
  • being fair and modeling trustworthy behavior

I hope everyone has a relaxing and well deserved summer break with their families and loved ones. I am looking forward to an amazing 2019-2020 school year.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at the school.

Mr. Charles Longston

2019 Canada’s Favourite Crossing Guard Contest

Three crossing guards from Ontario and New Brunswick chosen as Canada’s favourites!
Three exceptional school crossing guards who go above and beyond the call of duty have been chosen as winners of the 2019 Canada’s Favourite Crossing Guard Contest. The recipients, who are being recognized for their extraordinary contributions to their communities, will receive their awards over the next few weeks.

Linda Daum, Stratford –  For extra safety, she carries a stop sign that lights up and flashes. She greets everyone with a huge smile and gives out treats on special occasions, including a cooler with ice-cold treats on the last day of school.

Congratulations Linda! You are a vital part of our school community. More information will be released in terms of a celebration once we have more details.
