Mingle at Munsch

We are looking forward to our Mingle at Munsch event tomorrow.

Join us starting at 4 p.m. for our BBQ as well as three workshops on well being and work in equity and inclusive education. Our workshops will be located on the main floor near the office. They will run from 4 – 5:30 p.m.. Information on the workshops will be posted at the BBQ table and School Council table outside.

At 6 p.m. we will have performances in the gym. Our first round of grade one performers should be in room 126 at 5:45  p.m. and all sign language club performers in room 129 at 5:45 ready for our 6 o’clock start. We will then have a brief intermission at 6:20 p.m. to allow our grade 2/3 performers to set up. At 6:15 p.m. grade 2s and 2/3 should go to room 121 and grade 3s should meet in the multipurpose room with their recorders and sunglasses.

At this point, we have had over 400 people RSVP that they will be attending. Parking will be very limited so we recommend as many families walk as they can to the school tomorrow night. The weather looks good and it should be a great night.

See everyone soon,

Mr. Collins

Teacher Appreciation Day

Teachers are certified members of the Ontario College of Teachers. They have degrees in both education and another area of specialization. Some staff have multiple degrees and additional qualifications. Many of our staff  continue their learning and training in a wide variety of ways throughout the year.  As an early years’ focused school, it is wonderful that many of our staff have pertinent qualifications, including: primary education, reading, kindergarten and special education including specialist qualifications.

I cannot capture the full extent of the work of a teacher here. It is complex work that I have the honour of witnessing unfold each day. Here are but a few of the aspects of a teacher’s work:

Again, this is only a small sampling. I thank our teachers for the work and commitment. We are fortunate to have teachers who also specialize in areas that include:

  •  our Learning Commons
  • English Language Learners
  • Special education
  • The arts
  • Physical and Health education
  • Reading Recovery.

Please join me in thanking our teaching staff for the work they do each day at our school.

Mr. Collins
