Welcome back students, parents/guardians, and staff!
Wow, we have had a busy start to the year already and there are some changes in the school to tell you about. Mrs. Oullette has joined our office team as Head Secretary for the next three months and is doing a wonderful job. We would appreciate your patience and understanding as we make this transition in the office. Mrs. Lysgaard will be teaching our grade 3 class in the PM and Mrs. Derechey will be teaching the grade 2 class. I am excited that we are able to find such great teachers to join our East Elementary team. In addition, it looks like our student enrollment is up and we may be reconfiguring some of our classes in the upcoming weeks and I will keep you up to date on any of those changes.
Most importantly, our teachers and support staff are looking forward to seeing your children walk through our doors. There is a wonderful atmosphere of anticipation and excitement in the school. Bulletin boards are being decorated, classrooms are being set up, desks are being moved around and amazing lessons are being created. We had our first staff meeting during the teacher work days and I was immediately impressed by what a fun and compassionate staff we have here at East Elementary. When I adjourned the meeting, I told the staff that my goal is for East Elementary to be the very best school in Leduc and the school where everyone wants to be. The staff laughed at me and replied that “We already are!”. With that kind of attitude, who can argue?
I look forward to meeting all of you and I encourage you to stop by the office or speak to your classroom teacher if you have any questions or concerns. Welcome Back!!
