Staff Shout Outs

  • Thank you to Monica and her students for organizing a very touching Remembrance Day assembly and to Kim for "saving the day" by finding us a guest speaker. The beautiful song en francais by the grade 2s under the direction of Amy, Hilary and Andrea was a highlight!
  • Thank you again for welcoming our guests into your classrooms last week.
  • Thank you for supporting each other in so many different ways. We hear often about small gestures (like covering each others duties while on a trip or combining classes so someone can go to an appointment without taking a half day off) that go a long way to making the Southview staff so amazing!
  • Thank you to Andrea for running another successful We Scare Hunger campaign and organizing We Day in Ottawa for her group.
  • Thank you to our Queen's candidates for becoming a valuable part of Southview over the last 6 weeks. We look forward to having you return in the winter.
