As we near the end of yet another tremendous school year here at Margaret Avenue, we would like to take this opportunity to extend a few farewells, a warm welcome and some additional information as we look ahead to September 2016!

We would first like to extend a fond farewell to our grade 8 graduating students who are graduating! You have left your mark on Margaret Avenue and you will be missed as you head off to High School in September! We would also like to extend a warm welcome to all our grade six students who will be attending our school in September!

We also extend a fond farewell to Mrs. Kritikos, Mr. Koop, Ms Maffin, Ms McDonald, Mr. Piperakis, Mrs. Smith who have all been exemplary Occasional Teachers this school year. We would also like to extend warm farewell wishes to Mrs. Kersey and Mrs. Benoit, both Education Assistants, working with us for many years.

To our Margaret Avenue Families, I would like to thank you for your partnership. This is evident in many forms, e.g., supporting our staff, helping your children at home, supporting the programs offered by the school and keeping informed via our website and social media communications. We have also appreciated seeing so many of you at our Family Games Night, our many Athletic Events, Band and Arts Performances and attending our School Council this past year!

To our Margaret Avenue Staff, I would like to publicly “Thank you” for a truly wonderful year.  You are a talented, hardworking, dedicated group of professionals who love kids and provide the very best learning opportunities for them each day.

I would like to take a moment to wish you and your family a very safe and happy summer and I look forward to seeing each of you on September 6, the first day of school or on September 8, at the Meet the Teacher evening!


Mrs. Evelyn Giannopoulos
