Dear School Community Parents and Families,
It is a pleasure to welcome you all to the 2009-2010 academic school year. As the Principal Learner and the school administrative leader I would like to express my enthusiasm and expectations for a successful and rewarding year. For starters let me introduce myself. My name is Cowpernicus and I am the new Principal of CommunityPublic School. This is my seventh year as a school administrator with the District School Board and I am extremely excited to be joining this team of professional educators at Community School. The warm and enthusiastic welcome to Community indicated to me that the learners in our community care about people, relationships and the role that education plays in our lives.
After our first full week of school I would like to share with you some of my thoughts about this wonderful learning community.
- We have an incredible, Cultural community with many world wide identities. This cultural experience makes Community a unique and exciting school.
- Students, Parents, Educators and volunteers are very kind and know what it means to help each other.
- The academic nature of our building is such that student achievement is at the fore front of what we all do every day.
- Students are excited to learn new things as are all the teachers in this building!
It is clear to me that there is a rich tradition of greatness at Community School. I intend, as your school Principal, to continue the good work done by all the Principal’s before me in making Community a school where students and educators exercise their potential for greatness every day. As a start to the school year the teachers were asked to identify with a catchy slogan that would get us off in the right direction. We are asking our entire learning community to “Get On The Bus. . .We Are Changing the World.” Watch for this motto on our staff shirts. Help us by letting your students know that each day they get up they help make the world a great place!
I hope to meet all of you on Wednesday, September 23rd at our Community Family Barbeque.
