Principal’s Message – April 13

Dear Parents and Guardians,

This week, while short, was very rewarding for our students. As a result of support from our Parent Advisory Council we were happy to welcome the AquaVan from the Vancouver Aquarium on Tuesday and Thursday. Additionally, many primary classes were able to attend skating and swimming field trips to Meadow Park Sports Center. Next week, we look forward to welcoming Michael Allen, local bear expert, on Monday and Tuesday to share about his experiences with bear awareness and safety.

Also, we are looking forward to having the instructors from Big Sky Golf Course join us during the coming weeks, as the weather turns nicer, to provide introductory instruction to all of our students.

Finally, I would like to announce that I will be making the transition to a new role within our district as District Principal: Human Resources. This change will be effective April 23, 2018. I have enjoyed my time here at Signal Hill and will miss the students, staff and parents that make up this wonderful learning community.

I am very happy to announce that Marilyn Caldwell, previously the Director of Instruction: Learning Services, will be the Acting Principal from the 23rd until the end of the 2017/2018 school year. Marilyn has been involved with our school for several years and is well-informed about our students, staff and community.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at ddunkin@sd48.bc.ca or by phone at 604-894-6378.

Sincerely,

 

David Dunkin

Principal
