Dear Parents and Guardians,
I hope everyone has been able to enjoy a wonderful summer with families and friends! Welcome to the 2015 – 2016 school year!
I am delighted to join the Garden Avenue Public School community. I’m committed to student engagement and achievement and I will work hard at supporting you to bring the best out in each of your children. Working closely with families I know that we will continue to build on the successes and achieve remarkable social, academic and innovative outcomes for our students here at Garden.
I’ve already had the opportunity to connect with many community members, students and staff. It’s clear to me from all these initial conversations that we all value our wonderful school as an integral part of this community. I feel so very fortunate to be joining a team of such dedicated and hardworking individuals and I look forward to working with each and every one of you, students, staff and families this coming year.
We welcome our new families to Garden! Ms. Cundari will be replacing Mrs. Petrowski until she returns from parental leave in February 2016. Stephanie Bowman will be coming in temporarily to replace Sandy Irving-Harry who is off on medical leave. We are pleased to welcome both teachers to Garden.
We look forward to working with you this year and have many activities already planned. I would like to mention a few activities which are coming up in the near future, the Terry Fox Walk on September 25, Kinder-coffee on Sept. 25 and Photo Day on Sept. 28.
Our first School Advisory Council General meeting is on Sept.24 at 6:30 in the gym. All parents are encouraged to get involved in the School Advisory Council and we hope you are able to attend.
We are looking forward to a wonderful year.
Principal Garden Avenue
