In honor of Valentine’s Day, we asked principals why they love their school. See their responses, and post your own, at #PSILoveMySchool.

  • There are 744 main reasons why “I Love My School”! The students who come through our doors each and every day bring such joy to all.

    In addition, we have a minimum of at least 100 parents coming to our school each week for supportive workshops on literacy, math, science and wellness! They also come in for our Student Led Conferences and our teachers meet with them during Parent Engagement Time!

    We have created a welcoming environment opening our arms wide for all to enter!

    We have established an Instructional Team with representation from each grade as well as our English as Another Language (ELL) staff, and our specialized subjects staff. They meet every 2 weeks discussing curriculum and instruction. They have also organized family events after school. Our Kindergarten staff hosted a Movie Night; our ELL staff hosted a Multicultural Pot Luck Dinner; and our Grade 4 hosted a Pajama Polar Express Movie Night. All of these events were very successful and we look forward to others.

    I Love My School!
