Thank you message from Superintendent Bennett

The 2016-2017 school year is nearing completion and it is my absolute pleasure to thank you all for your important contributions over the past year.

Thank you to our students for your dedication, enthusiasm and creativity. It brings an incredible sense of pride to reflect upon the countless examples of collective and personal accomplishment, growth, school and community spirit, kindness and leadership. The positive impact you make in your school, community and society as a whole is further reaching than you know. 

To our graduates, congratulations on reaching this important milestone and best wishes in all your future endeavours. This is an opportunity to celebrate how far you’ve come, and to acknowledge how far you are capable of continuing to go. The future is wide open to you and I encourage you to remember that no dream is too big.

Thank you to our parents and guardians for your support and involvement. We value and appreciate the important role you play in your child’s education. Parental involvement looks different for every family and we thank you for all that you do. Whether you help your child with homework, volunteer at the school, attend events, participate in parent teacher conferences, are a member of School Council, keep in contact with school staff or help your child with career planning - your contributions make a difference.

Thank you to our amazing staff – teachers, caretakers, support staff, educational assistants, learning coaches, bus drivers, maintenance personnel, mechanics and central office staff- every role makes a difference and contributes to student success. I am so grateful for the care, support and guidance that I see demonstrated every day in this division.

To our community members and organizations, we are very grateful for your involvement and participation in our schools. Your involvement demonstrates the importance of community and teamwork for our students. We are very thankful for your time spent volunteering, providing input, collaborating and forming partnerships throughout our school division that brings increased opportunities for students.

Students, staff, parents, community members and businesses, you are all an important part of the Peace River School Division family. Thank you for your contributions that make our schools the great places they are to learn, grow, work and be.  Wishing you a fantastic summer!
