Administration Changes

As we approach the December holidays, I would like to share with you that I will be leaving Southview at the end of the month to begin a self-funded leave of absence and that I will be moving to a new school for September 2019. In January, Joanne Borges will assume the position of Principal and Shannon Boutilier, who currently teaches in our Grade 6/7 classroom, will move into the position of Vice Principal. The school is in excellent hands with these two capable leaders.

I feel extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to be the Principal of Southview for the last three and a half years and enjoyed being able to work each day with an incredible staff, amazing students and a supportive community. I wish everyone all the best and hope to cross paths again in the future.

Holiday Concert

Students in K to Grade 3 are excited to invite families to our Holiday Concert on Thursday, December 20th. There will be an afternoon performance at 2:30 pm as well as a performance at 6:00 pm that evening. Due to fire code regulations, there is limited seating for the evening show. Families with students in the primary division will receive 2 tickets to attend the evening show. These tickets will be sent home shortly. We will be collecting non-perishable food items or loonie donations at both shows. Our students would truly appreciate it if audience members stayed for the entire show seeing as they've worked so hard to prepare!

Looking for Cleaned & Empty K-Cup & Wrapping Paper Tube Donations

If you would like to support us by collecting your used K-Cups, cleaning them out and sending them into our donation box in the front hallway, we will use these to help us build, design, and construct. These are great tools for us to use in math, science and music!

As well, keep your holiday wrapping tubes so that in January, we can use these recyclable materials to help us with our learning. Thanks for your support of our school and for recycling these materials for our use.
