Welcome and Bienvenue to the 2018-2019 school year. I hope you all had a fabulous summer. I am absolutely honored to be the new principal of Laurier Heights School. The long-standing tradition of excellence at Laurier Heights is well documented. I believe that the health of a school is determined by its culture, and that culture is based upon a solid foundation of respectful interdependent relationships between the home, the school and the community.
I am looking forward to developing strong, trusting, mutually respectful relationships with all of Laurier Heights students and parents over the course of the 2018-2019 school year. Collectively, as the staff members of Laurier Heights School, we appreciate that you entrust us with the educational, social, emotional and physical development of your children.
Our staff demonstrates a commitment to professional enhancement to support teaching and learning at Laurier Heights. Our goal is to provide appropriate and challenging learning opportunities to meet the needs of all students as 21st century learners. We are also committed to providing a safe, caring and engaging environment that is conducive to learning at the highest levels. Personally, I see a collaborative culture that allows us to develop students as well-rounded, responsible, respectful citizens.
In addition to an academic focus, our students have many opportunities to enhance their learning through a number of clubs, special events and a multitude of sports teams. A great deal of pride is apparent in the overall participation and results of our students through the various leagues and tournaments. The trophies, medals and banners that are displayed throughout our school demonstrate the passion, drive and commitment of all those involved. Go Lions!
As we embark on this exciting year together, we are confident that with your continued support, we will experience great accomplishment and success in developing our students into the leaders of tomorrow.
