From the Office
Wow, it’s difficult to believe, but September has already come and gone! What a beautiful month it has been. We have enjoyed a very smooth start-up with all students and staff settling in nicely. The first month was very busy and all classes have been experiencing exciting classroom instruction and activities. The learners and staff at École Guelph Lake are now into full swing for what promises to be a fantastic 2018-2019 school year. I feel confident saying that EVERYONE has enjoyed the beginning of this new school year. Time flies when… we’re having FUN!
On September 10th, we had our first School Council meeting of this year. It was great to see so many parents come out to learn about what is going on at Guelph Lake and to offer input into the many ways that Council will support our school. The research is clear: increased parental involvement results in increased student achievement. Thanks to all who were able to join us!
As we begin October, I am pleased to say that we are all getting ready for another busy month ahead with several class trips and school events planned. Our cross-country team will be competing at the inter-school event in Aberfoyle, soccer teams are practicing regularly, and the John Howard Society will be in to begin our Character Education sessions in our classes.
Here’s to a great October!
