Principal’s Message – Week of September 25-29, 2017
Posted on 01/09/2018

Hello Churchill Families!

Happy Fall to everyone – although it appears Mother Nature is satisfied to keep the heat up for now, at least until Wednesday, where it may break to cooler temperatures. In the meantime, water, sunscreen, hats, light and loose clothing, and sunglasses are helping to keep students more comfortable during this heat wave.

I am happy to report that we will not require a reorganization of our classes. Furthermore, we welcome ECE Jenna Devine to Nicole, Emma, and Megan’s kindergarten class while Vanessa is off for the next few weeks.

Bienvenido to Elisa Rodriguez Alvarez who is an exchange teacher from Galicia, Spain. Elisa will be here until October 12th to learn about the education system in Canada and Ontario, and she is sharing her experiences as a primary teacher in Spain. Currently she is being hosted by Michele, Cheryl, and Candice in kindergarten, and will be working with the students. Soon she will move on to one of our primary and junior classrooms before her time with us is over.
