2018-19 School Year Calendars
Grand Erie District School Board received approval from the Ministry of Education for the 2018-19 School Year Calendars in May 2018. The calendars were developed in collaboration with the Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic District School Board, and received input from Executive Council.
Happy “new year”! I hope everyone had a pleasant summer holiday. It’s been nice to talk to students and parents this week about all the things you’ve done over the past two months. I’ve heard lots of stories of fun trips and relaxation. I’ve also heard a few about some more stressful experiences that life seems to always present. Whatever the past 2 months brought for you, I’m looking forward to working together again as a Boston School Family to support each other. September brings the opportunity for fresh starts and lots of reason for optimism. Each and every student is full of potential, and on a pathway that is their own unique success story (always in progress)!
This year you’ll notice that the staff is mostly the same with a few exceptions. Mrs. Huffman is off this year with her new baby. We would like to welcome Ms. Agius, who has joined us to teach the 3/4 class. We are excited to have her back as part of the Boston team! We would also like to welcome Mrs. Trembley as our new custodian. We are all in good hands with her making sure the building is in good shape!
On the first day, we had a Welcome-Back Assembly in which we committed to two very simple things this year: 1) We will always do our best
2) We will always be kind
I believe those two simple statements can guide every decision we make every day, and I’ve asked every Blazer to consider them when they are making choices.
Once again, welcome to a new school year. It’s good to be back!
