Last Few Words...

Laurier is a magical place with dedicated teachers and staff members and an active PAC. Our students are engaged in many activities, and new learning happens every day. I am proud of all the efforts and achievements. Watching our children discover their passions, learn new skills, gain knowledge, solve problems, and enthusiastically participate in all the opportunities that have been offered to them, has been a great joy. As I am moving to a new community, I wish you all a restful and fun summer!
