Hello W.H. Day
It is hard to
imagine that the school year is coming to a close. The saying time flies when you are having fun
is surely true this year. The time has
flown by. It seems such a short time ago
that we were welcoming the eager faces of our students in September, and now we
are saying so long for the summer. It
has been a great year of learning and extra-curricular activities for our
students. The staff here at W.H. Day
certainly need to be thanked for their efforts working both academically and
outside of the classroom.
There are a number
of staff that we are saying good bye to as the year ends. Mlle Boyd has done a fantastic job teaching the
Grade 5 Extended French class. We wish
her the best as she moves on to a new school.
Mrs. Burlock has been one of our Special Education teachers this year
and she is moving to a school closer to her home. M Dunham has done a great job this year taking
over one of our French Immersion classes.
He is also moving on to a new school to teach French Immersion. Mrs. Francoeur is moving on from her Grade 1
class to a school closer to her home.
Ms. Geertsema has been a planning time teacher for the year, and we wish
her the best of luck in her future teaching career. Mrs. McTaggart joined the team in the
Developmental Skills class and has done a great job, working closely with her
students and their families. Mrs. Nagy
has worked closely with our Kindergarten team for a number of years and is
moving on to a new school. Mlle
Nanowski has done a great job teaching one of our French Immersion classes and
we wish her the best. Mlle Rizzardo has
also taught French Immersion and we wish her the best as well. Mrs. Strever has been a valued member of the
Kindergarten team and is also moving to a new school in the fall. Mlle Wontorra joined our staff just a couple
of months ago to teach Core French to the Grade 4 to 8 English classes. She fit in as a valued member of the staff
quickly. We wish her the best in her
future teaching career.
Jackson is retiring from education after many years of service to the
profession, especially here at W.H. Day where she is one of the original staff
members! Retirement is a very special
time for a teacher. It is a time to look
back on a very successful career.
Teaching is much more than a job, it is a life choice. I have had the pleasure of knowing Mrs.
Jackson for a number of years and can say that she is one of the finest
teachers I have had the pleasure of working with. On behalf of the entire W.H. Day staff, I
wish Mrs. Jackson the very best on her retirement!
