The school year certainly flies by fast – it seems like we just get started and before you know it we are planning for next year. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the dedicated staff, students and parents who have played a role in the success of the 2016-2017 school year.
As we see another school year end, we reflect on the events that made this a great year for all of us. We are proud of the many accomplishments and successes of all our staff and students throughout the year. Our students have demonstrated success through academic achievement as well as through extra-curricular involvement. Congratulations to the fourth grade students who will be moving to Markham Place in the fall! We look forward to working with a brand new group of students who will be starting their journey with us in September!
As the school year draws to an end, I reflect in admiration and respect on the work that has been done by our students, teachers, and parents. I want to personally express my admiration and thanks to all that make Point Road such a special place!
Please continue to check the website, Twitter and Facebook for additional information during the summer months. I will be adding information such as:
- Motivating Students to Read Over the Summer
- Learning Should Continue During the Summer - Fun ideas for parents and students
- Fun word searches and activities for students to do alone
In closing, I would say that this has been a great school year in many ways. We are so fortunate to have such committed students, dedicated teachers and staff, and caring and involved parents. I wish you and your families a safe, restful and enjoyable summer and look forward to seeing you next year!
Please remember that class placement letters should arrive in your mailboxes on or about August 14th. If you do not receive a letter by August 16th, please contact the school office to make sure that we have the most recent address for your family! New Student Orientation will be held on Thursday, September 6th and school re-opens on Thursday, September 7, 2017!!!
