Selby Public School
May/June 2019 Newsletter
As we head towards the completion of another successful year at Selby P.S., on behalf of Mrs. Gallagher and myself, I would like to once again thank you for all of your support - the students, families and staff here are amazing at working together to make this such a special place.
It is certainly sad for me to be writing my final newsletter as your Principal. While I did not expect to be leaving at this point, I do so feeling proud of everything that has been accomplished over the past three years. I will remember my time here very fondly.
This year, in particular, has been filled with excitement, learning and growth, and we still have a few more weeks to go. As our Grade 8s prepare for graduation, we wish them all the best for the future, and thank them for their leadership this year.
At this time, I am pleased to share with you our (tentative) staffing organization for next year. Starting now, we are happy to take requests for classroom placements next year. Please bring these directly to Mrs. Gallagher or myself, and we will keep them on file for the time when class lists are generated. While we will do our best to make these requests happen, we cannot make any promises. In September, staffing is reviewed by the Limestone District School Board, and changes in our organization may occur at that time.
