Focused, intentional instruction around literacy and numeracy, knowing students strengths and needs and promoting increased student learning and achievement will continue to be a priority. We believe all students can learn and achieve success and we are committed to working closely with parents and the community to make it happen.  </p><p>The first few weeks of September is a time when we often need to do some adjustments in school and class organization.  At this time, please remember that all class placements are tentative and subject to change based on enrolment. With potential new registrations, and students moving over the summer there are times when it may be necessary to shuffle not only students, but teachers as well. We appreciate your patience and understanding over the next couple of weeks.</p><p>We look forward to working with all members of our school community this year. Please feel free to contact us throughout the year should you have any questions or feedback. We value open communication to  ensure that all our community members feel valued. </p><p>Together, we can make a difference! </p><p> </p><p>M. Hornik and D. Bradley</p>
