Dear Parents and Guardians,

Once again, it is our pleasure to welcome you and your children to a new school year!

We hope you had a lovely summer and that you are looking forward to the academic year ahead. Whether you're about to send your child to their first day of kindergarten, their last year of secondary school, or anywhere in between, we share in your enthusiasm.

We know the beginning of the school year can be both exciting and challenging for families and students. We have many helpful resources to assist you and your children in transitioning back to school and supporting students throughout the year.

Please check your child's school's website and our District calendar for important dates, including ProD days, school meetings, school holidays and events. And, in the next couple of weeks, we hope you participate in our back-to-school campaign on Facebook and Instagram. Please visit our pages. By participating, you have a chance to win passes to either Science World or the Vancouver Aquarium.

As the school year unfolds, our #schoolyearintention is to continue engaging with students and their families, our staff and stakeholders, so that together we strengthen our school system with student success and well-being at its heart.

We wish the 2019-20 school year be one of achievement, growth and fond memories for all!

Janet Fraser Suzanne Hoffman

Board Chair Superintendent of Schools
