Dear Parents,

On behalf of the staff at Bezanson School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential.

We are very excited to have Stacey Campbell with us again this year as our full time grade 3 teacher and are welcoming Kim Living as our Grade 2 teacher! There have been many wonderful changes happening in our building this summer and we are loving all the updates to our home. The older grade 5/6 portable and the detached ECS portable have been retired after a long career of housing many children in the community. We were positively delighted to receive three new beautiful portables that have been attached on the west side of the building. Our ECS classroom (previously the 3/4 classroom) has a new little kitchenette that will come in handy for many students in our building. We have also put some lovely personal touches around the building with new furniture and décor. Please feel free to come visit us so we can proudly give you the “Grand Tour”!

We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience

2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers

3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills

4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life

5) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject

It is our desire to keep you informed of all that is taking place at school. Up-to-date and additional information will be sent to you though our monthly newsletters, our Facebook page, emails and Power

Announce messages. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call.

I look forward to having a long and rewarding relationship with you and your family.

Sincerely,

Elizabeth Linfield

Principal
