A Message from our Principal
Welcome to Helen E. Taylor School to the 2022/2023 school year!!
Welcome back to our returning HET families and a huge welcome to those families new to our school this year. I hope everyone took the time to spend the summer relaxing and reconnecting with family and friends. We have already had a very exciting start to our new school year including our welcome week court activities. Students participated in some fun games outside in the beautiful weather. We have also started up with our sports teams with volleyball already well underway.
We have some wonderful new additions to our staff and I would like to recognize Ms. Balisky, Mrs. Rinehart, and Miss Tetreau to our teaching staff, along with Mrs. MacAlister as our new Assistant Principal! I would also like to welcome our new Educational Assistants joining our team this year, Mrs. Bain and Ms. Coupland!
We have some amazing whole school activities planned for the year ahead along with some family fun nights that will be happening. Our teachers are creating amazing lessons and activities that will challenge our students and build their success. I look forward to all of the wonderful things that will be happening at our school this year and invite you to join us for all the wonderful events that will take place throughout the year.
Wishing you all the best for a wonderful year ahead!
