Leaping into Literacy Family Event!

Ms. Statton and I are honoured to be back at Glamorgan Jr. P.S. for another wonderful year! We hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable summer; we are looking forward to connecting with all our students, staff and community members over the days and weeks ahead. Both Ms. Statton and I are very excited to continue being part of this vibrant learning community and we look forward to strengthening the feeling of joy, belonging and engagement at Glamorgan for the 2023-2024 school year.
To those returning to our wonderful school, welcome back! To those who are new, a sincere welcome to all of you! We hope that everyone has had pleasant adventures during the summer months. Now, it is time to get back to learning opportunities, routines and school friends. I’m sure many children are excited with the anticipation of beginning a new grade with a new teacher and look forward to making new friendships. We hope that the “Meet Next Year’s Teacher” class visit in June helped ease some anxious minds as students transition to their new classes.
Both Ms. Statton and I are extremely excited about this upcoming school year as it promises to be another dynamic year for students, staff and our community. As a learning community, we will continue to “show our thinking and learning and share our stories and narratives”, as we extend our School Improvement Goals this school year. Be sure to check out our dynamic bulletin board by the school office, that highlights how we are supporting: student achievement, student and staff well-being and joy, as well as Indigenous Education.
Our priority will continue to be the engagement and well-being of our students, staff and school community. We will equally be committed to supporting and achieving high learning expectations for all on a daily basis. As school administrators, we look forward to visiting all the classrooms and discussing learning goals and success criteria with all the students as they take ownership of their learning.
Please know that our school is well on its way to being ready and gleaming for the opening day thanks to Mr. Knapp, Mr. Ramsay and Mr. Stefanidis - our caretaking staff. Let’s honour their hard work by making every effort to keep our school clean. The teaching and support staff will be busy bringing to life their classrooms and planning meaningful, engaging and authentic learning lessons.
A great big THANK YOU to Ms. Statton, Ms. Caranci and Ms. Stamadianos for their efforts to ensure a smooth start to the school year - never an easy task! Class lists, bus schedules, student forms, attendance and so much more will all be organized and at the ready for September 5th, 2023.
Speaking of staff - we have many familiar teaching faces back and we welcome everyone! It is an absolute pleasure working with the Glamorgan staff who showed us last year how they go above and beyond every day to support student well-being, achievement, and sense of self.
Finally, we wanted to extend a very warm welcome to everyone and best wishes for a fantastic 2023-2024 school year! We believe that students are at the center of all school-related decisions, and that the relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students. We encourage you to become involved in opportunities throughout the school year.
Thank you all for your continued support and hard work! We look forward to working with everyone in the months ahead.
See everyone at 8:30 AM on Tuesday, September 5th!
Mr. Petrucci & Ms. Statton
