Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2021 - 2022 school year!

This website is just one more means of communicating with our parents and children.

Leslieville is a very special school with a long history. The first school was a log cabin which opened in 1864. The principal of the day was Alexander Muir who wrote the song, "The Maple Leaf For Ever". We still value our history and traditions today. Since that time Leslieville has beome a vibrant city community and it is reflected in our school. Our school has established strong relationships with various partners in our community such as Woodgreen Daycare and Eastview Boys and Girls Club and the Indonesian Consulate where our children regularly study and perform gamelan music. Our students are leaders in the eco school movement and it is our goal to reach Gold level. We work closely with our child care program to provide a seamless transition for the children throughout the day. There are also many extra curricular activities provided for our students.

The staff and I are looking forward to working with you and your children. The year promises to be full of exciting activities and many wonderful learning opportunities. Everyone is excited about beginning a new year. Your child is no doubt, excited about seeing their friends and finding out who will be his/her teacher. Our staff is excited about all the learning that will be done in the next 10 months. Everyone, teachers, secretaries, caretakers, educational assistants, and lunchroom supervisors, have worked very hard to get things ready for our students! In no time you will see that your child has adjusted to a new school year.

I look forward to meeting and working with all of you. Please feel free to come in and introduce yourself. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or concerns.
