Well the first month of school has finished and given the summer weather we had, I’m guessing September is the only summer weather we will see in 2017. However, given all the natural catastrophic things happening like earthquakes and hurricanes in other parts of the world we are truly blessed if all we have to complain about is a wet summer.
That being said I’d like to welcome all the students and staff back for the 2017/2018 school year. I look forward to visiting schools through the coming year and perhaps even attending some of the many events I know each school will be holding.
To the parents I would remind you TLDSB encourages and welcomes parent engagement in whatever capacity they are comfortable with or able to. One of the many ways to do this is through parent participation in their child’s school council, or if your child is a high school student, as a member of the schools advisory committee. Please consider volunteering and remaining involved with your child’s school and their education.
Until we meet in the halls ……………. take care.
