Glenburnie Public School - August 31, 2018
On behalf of all the staff, we extend a warm welcome to all our students and families, both returning and new! We look forward to working with you in pursuit of learning and well being for all our students.
Our staff have been hard at work this summer cleaning and preparing classrooms and the school. We are ready and excited for this school year. A special thanks to our caretakers, Mr. de Boer and Mr. Rawson, for our sparkling school and to Mrs.Tuttle for getting our office up and running.I feel fortunate to continue to work with such a dedicated and talented group of people who learn and work together every day to matter in the lives of students.
Our hope for this year is that each and every student feels welcome and that they matter. When we feel valued and confident, we are more likely to take risks and get involved. As well, we are more likely to work hard and persevere. These are all key ingredients to successful learning and growth. We look forward to your partnership in making this happen, because you matter and are so important in your child's life! Developing positive partnerships between home and school through effective communication will help ensure your child will be the best they can be.
This is an exciting time of year, full of opportunity and new beginnings! Students have a variety of feelings: anxious, hesitant, excited. We encourage you to help your child continue to develop a growth mindset and set goals to get better at something, to learn more about something, and to grow as a person. But before you do that, we encourage you to help your child be mindful of his/her strengths...things that make them unique and special, ways they contribute, and the positive characteristics they have. Give your child examples of why you think this about them. Hopefully, this will fuel them to embrace challenges and opportunities this upcoming school year!
Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share.
Sincerely, Heather Campbell, Principal
