Pardon our progress as we work feverishly to complete our major projects - two new classroom buildings, two new sports fields and a new 6th form area. The
instructional experiences of the students will benefit from the new spaces, but the real winners will be our sports programs, as we get ready to step up to the challenges of Track and Field events, as well as football and field games. The parent survey last year clearly indicated that the sports programs were a main priority, and we are responding to this need.

School has opened in an orderly and joyful manner, full to capacity. The High School had its first assembly on Wednesday and the Prep School assembly was on Friday. The French Section welcomed an additional teacher this year. The IB 6th Form will begin studies on September 7th. Our parents handled the parking difficulties caused by the new projects with tact and good humour - thank you to the PTA Traffic Monitors and to all who were patient and courteous under pressure.

We welcomed the new staff members and new students during orientation sessions and Mrs. Bev Corke, Dr Shaunna Williams and Mrs Veniece Hamil conducted several professional development sessions for our teachers in the days before school opened.

PTA year planning and election preparations are underway. The Welcome Coffee Morning will be held on September 9 from 7:30am, in the Hillel Hall. You are invited to come meet the candidates and get involved with this wonderful and effective group.

On behalf of our faculty and staff, I welcome you all back to school and wish us all a productive, successful and fun-filled year.
