Message from the Chair – June 2015

Recent weeks have been busy with celebrations, appreciation and student performances. Two events certainly stood out for me: Learning Together inquiry groups celebrated the completion of three years of inquiry based professional development and the publishing of a summary document that outlines the  wonderful process and many inspiring moments of sharing learning.  Congratulations to all participant and facilitators!! The Spoken Word Festival on June 4th and 5th gave students the opportunity to perform their creative work on the big stage at the Rockwood Pavillion. The quality, passion and talent evident in those two days was amazing.  If you missed a chance to see the performance, mark your calendar for next year!  What a wonderful event!

Our Strategic Plan is complete and was approved by the Board of Education on June 9.  Printed copies of the document that will guide our next four years will be available in schools in September.  The Board also approved the guiding principles for a new Joint Use Agreement with the SCRD regarding facility use.  Staff is working on the new agreement and we hope to see a new document this fall.

As this is the final post for the school year, I want to congratulate all our graduates and wish each and every one a positive rewarding future.  To all returning students and staff please have a safe and happy summer and we look forward to welcoming you back in September.
