Hello and welcome to the last two-week installment of “The Week Ahead” for the 2018-2019 school year! I’m still not sure how this year managed to slip by so quickly …
The final weeks of school are a busy and exciting time and there are many special activities occurring. It is important for students to remember school expectations apply when they are away from our building on field trips and I would ask for you to reinforce this message before sending your child to school on the days their class has a field trip. Thank you!
At this time there are several changes to our staff that I would like to share with you:
We have 3 teachers retiring after many years of service to our District and to Bert Ambrose School. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their dedication to the educational system and their passion for working with students.
- Ms. Trockstad – Learning Assistant Teacher
- Mrs. McKinnon – Grade 1 Teacher
- Mr. Frankham – Grade 3/4 teacher
We are also saying good-bye to Mrs. Tewari (Grade 2/3 teacher) as she has accepted a job at Robert Ogilvie and to Mrs. Louie (Grade 4 teacher). I would like to thank both of these teachers for their time in our school community and wish them all the best as they move forward with their teaching careers.
In September, we will be welcoming Mrs. Dutchak and Mrs. Gatt (both currently teaching at Alwin Holland) as well as Ms. MacPherson (currently teaching at Prespatou) to our staff. We are very excited to have these individuals joining us.
Planning for the next school year is well underway … please remember to let the school know if your child/children are not going to be attending Bert Ambrose nexy year. Additionally, if you have concerns about student placement for the upcoming year, please make sure to place these in writing and submit them to me prior to June 26th. Such placements will be considered on an individual basis and must be based on a sound educational rationale. There are many factors that are taken into consideration when we place students and it is not always possibile to grant parental requests. Your understanding of this process is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Lastly, a reminder from our PAC – one that has my full approval due to the on-going concerns I have for the number of items in our LOST and FOUND! (See below in red.)
Looking forward to an amazing two weeks to wrap up a fantastic year at Bert Ambrose!
