Welcome Back to School!
Hello Erin Public School families! Most school Newsletters start with “I am so excited…”, but I really truly am excited for the beginning of a new school year and to be a part of the Erin school community. I have had the pleasure of meeting many of you in the last few weeks and sincerely look forward to meeting all of you in the near future. I would also like to thank you for extending such a warm welcome.
Our school is looking shiny and polished thanks to our custodial team: Ms. Stewart, Ms. VanSickle and Ms. Lafflin. One of the recent visitors had asked if we were a brand new school! The teachers have been working hard getting their classrooms ready, taking courses over the summer and planning activities for the students. Around the school, the grounds are also looking wonderful with brand new mulch and plants. And if you have not been following the pictures of the vegetable garden on Twitter you must come round back and have a look for yourself. Mrs. Edwards has been diligently watering and weeding all summer long. I can’t wait to see the kids’ faces when they see all the vegetables! A huge THANK YOU to all those who help make our building and school community a welcoming place to learn and grow!
In the next few weeks I will be updating the school website with events for the calendar, Family Handbook with lots of information, as well as other tid-bits you may want to keep track of. Please check it periodically. In the meantime, you will be receiving lots of paper, in the first week or so, that you will need to read, sign and possibly return.
I would encourage all those who can to get involved in Parent Council. Come share your talents, make a difference, pitch in, get involved! Check the website for meeting dates to be posted soon.
Pizza Lunches will start in the next few weeks, but for now, please send lots of nutritious snacks and water.
I wish you all a wonderful School Year!
Marina Harrison, Principal
