STAFF CHANGES 2019-2020
We are pleased to announce our staff changes for our 2019-2020 School year. As you already know, Mrs Lisa Bond accepted a Principal position at St. Puis X School starting next year and we have hired Mrs Sonia Woodman for Intermediate Learning Assistance. Sonia was previously working at St. Francis of Assisi School and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the position. Welcome Sonia! To facilitate the change in Learning Assistance we will also have other changes. Mr Lorenzo Basso will be teaching in Grade 6 and Mrs Linda Guzzo will be teaching Grade 4. Mr Peter Stocker will be splitting duties between support teacher in Grade 6 and ADST teacher for all grades. We are all excited about the new changes and will continue to strive for excellence in all programs. Thank you for your understanding and please help us congratulate our staff for the changes for next year!
