Principal’s Message

I am really looking forward to the “Stream of Dreams” project coming to Shakespeare Public School on November 4th and 5th.  Students will have an opportunity to learn about our local watershed from the Upper Thames conservation authority.  In addition, each student will paint a CRP Plastics fish that will be prominently displayed outside at our school.  Thanks to all of the parents who have volunteered.  We are still looking for help on Wednesday morning when we will be mounting the fish to the fence.

I am also really excited for Family Math night with Sharon Zintel on Tuesday, November 19th.  Families are highly encouraged to come as a group and play some interactive games.

Progress reports go home on Monday.  Please call the school to book an interview time.  Interviews will be on November 7th from 3:45 to 6:45 and November 8th from 8:30 to 11:45.

The character attribute for the month of November is courage.  Courage is defined as facing your fears with confidence – being brave.   Students can demonstrate courage at school by:

  • doing the right things even if others are not
  • be willing to try new things, even if you might fail
  • admit your mistakes and learn from them
  • do not give in to negative peer pressure
