Welcome and Bienvenue to a promising year at École Laurier Heights School.
It is my pleasure to welcome new and returning students and their families to Laurier Heights. I am proud and honoured to be the principal of this very fine learning community with a strong reputation for academic excellence and student behaviour. We continue to build and earn the trust of families in a safe and caring learning environment that promotes intellectual, social, emotional and physical growth. Our K-9 environment fosters student leadership, mutual respect, modeling of excellent citizenship and acceptance of all students. Laurier students demonstrate a responsible and cooperative attitude which is most evident in the manner they respond to the challenge of high expectations we hold for their academics and behaviour.
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.
In addition to an academic focus, our students have many opportunities to enhance their learning through a number of clubs, special events and 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 demonstrates the passion, drive and commitment of all those involved. Go Lions!
A successful education is a shared responsibility between home and school. Learners benefit from a dedicated and supportive team of teachers, support staff, students, parents/guardians and community members. Ongoing communication is an integral component for the success of any partnership. Parents/guardians play a key role in their children developing the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to be productive and successful learners. We welcome your ideas, support, feedback, and involvement throughout the year. The active involvement of our parents through volunteerism and PAC/PAL has indeed contributed to the success of Laurier Heights. As always, your voice is important and we appreciate your input.
Our enthusiastic and hardworking team looks forward to working closely with you and providing the absolute best education for your child/ren. 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 as the leaders of tomorrow.
Your partner in education,
Mrs. Tiziana Fiorillo, M. Ed.
